oh man

imageWith Hawaii just ten days away, I’m getting excited. I’m also realizing how much we have left to do before we go.

Mostly we need to coordinate daycare for C to cover the few things we plan to do things without her. We purchased a helicopter ride to tour the island for Ben and me, and C won’t be accompanying us, so we are planning to use a daycare service for that. Our meals well mostly be at the condo we rented, but we hope to get out for at least one nice dinner while we’re there. So, again we’ll be in need of babysitting. There was also talk of a massage… which is preferably an adults only activity. So possibly one more time slot to find childcare.

Then there are activities we want to all do together, but still need to make reservations. We’ll hit up a traditional (although touristy) luau, do some snorkeling near our condo, maybe ride on a glass bottom boat, do the drive to Hana. It’s just a matter of figuring out where it all fits in best. More than anything else, though, we just want to relax while there. Our condo is on the ground floor, “just 23 steps from the sand,” according to the vrbo website. A have grand plans to take advantage of our long distance baby monitor and lounge in the sun with cocktails while C naps. We’ll spend lots of time at the beach with her, too, but I imagine our “relaxation time” will come easier when she’s not there.

Given that we don’t have very aggressive demands for our trip, it does take some of the planning stress off. I’ve started packing already and have some laundry to do to finish up my bag. The clothes I recently pulled out of my “too small” box (more on that later) absorbed an unpleasant plastic odor that needs to be washed out. I have big plans for our washing machine this weekend. I hope it’s ready for all the action!
