leaving on a jet plane....

With all the hustle and bustle and preparation for my trip, i have not really had time to blog. Sorry about that but in all honesty, there hasn't been much going on besides work, laundry, and more work.

Anyway, tomorrow, BLT will be leaving behind our families, our house, and most importantly our four legged children, to head to the 50th state. Yes, we are off to HAWAII!

Now, before you get uber jealous, this is a work trip for me. (Aren't i a lucky girl for having a Pulmonary Conference in such an amazing place?!?!? ) So, it isn't all vacation.... i will be attending lectures and presenting a poster on my research. My 1st poster for Pulmonary/Critical Care! But don't worry- i do plan on being able to sight see, and take T

surfing, and of course doing some shopping! I wonder what great shoe stores i can find????

And i plan on kayaking and working on my tan here:
Ahu o Laka, also called the Kaneohe Bay Sandbar, the Sunken Island, the Disappearing Island, and sometimes just the Kaneohe Sandbar.

Per the Hawaii visitors site: "The Ahu o Laka Sandbar in Kaneohe Bay is a popular resting place or destination for sailboats, kayakers, jet skiiers, and other boaters and only appears above the water line at high tide.

Ahu o Laka is about three acres in size and it has beautiful views of Kaneohe Bay and the Koolau Mountains. No birds nest on Ahu Laka and it has no vegetation. It is a part of a larger sand wedge that is approximately a mile long. It sits about a mile off the coast on the lagoon side of a barrier reef. "

Anyway, to all of our readers (all 3) and friends/family, please pray for safe travels for us. Also, many thanks to Camille who is watching our 4 legged children. And just in case people are wondering, the results are not back yet for that little test i took back in August. They should be back the last weekend of October (i will be back by then). And my feeling is: regardless of good or bad news, at least i went to hawaii. :)
