Hawaii 2-O.

Traci Skene, you've just had one of the worst three month periods of your life! What are you gonna do now?

"I'm going to... Hawaii!"

To use yet another cliche, I need a vacation like nobody's business.

We take off out of Philly International on Wednesday morning and, I believe, three days later we'll land in Honolulu. Ok, it'll just seem like three days.

Even though our 20th wedding anniversary isn't until December, we're still considering this to be our 20th anniversary trip. We were married in Hawaii so we hope to recreate some of the photos we took on our honeymoon. It's a nice goal but I doubt we'll go through with our plan. (Here we are atop Diamond Head in 1988. My husband still has that shirt. I wish I still had the shirt I'm wearing... or should I say I wish I still had the boobs that would allow me to wear the shirt that I was wearing.)

I will be blogging and posting photos of our vacation starting on Thursday or Friday... assuming, of course, we have decent internet access.

Right now, I'm just trying to figure out ways to amuse myself for 12 hours on a plane. For my husband's birthday, I bought him (and yes I'll read them too) Levitt and Dubner's "Freakonomics" and "A Short History of Nearly Everything" by Bill Bryson.

I also plan on watching the craptastic inflight movies. The only way I would ever sit through "The Bucket List" or "Mad Money" is if I'm trapped on a plane.

But, at the end of the ordeal, we'll be in paradise so it'll all be worth it. Coming home will be a different story. At the end of that trip, we'll be in New Jersey.

Bill Bryson is one of my favorite author's. Text books should be written like he writes. People would learn more.
