school supplies are bought

we are almost ready for school.  We spent almost $100 yesterday at Walmart, and we already had stuff!  Supplies have a tendancy to run out on the island - not a situation you run into on the mainland.  School starts Aug. 1.  And we've been packing in the fun.

Nothing planned.  But we've been busy every day.  Someone will call up and say, let's meet and the beach or come over to our house to swim, or can I bring so and so over to play with your boys.  Yes, it's okay to invite your kids over as long as one of the options is that we can come over at a later date to swim.  LOL! 

It's been a surprising week - just to have this happen.  I think it's a sign that I have made friends and my boys have made friends and we are settled. 

Just in time to move again, I'm sure.  LOL!

Just to rub it in a little, we spent 3 1/2 hours at Waikiki the other day.  Never saw the beach.  Spent the whole time at the pool.  (that's kids for ya, they would spend all day at a pool that is just feet from a world class beach)  We met friends, and the older son and husband of her took surfing lessons.  They said it was well worth it.  They got a 2 hour lesson for $45.  Quite a deal. 

Date night tonight!  Yay!  We don't have anything planned.  I guess I ought to go wash my face, put on makeup and iron something.

Oh, the tv just did a little blurb on Harry Potter.  Now, I've only read one book and happened to see a movie because it was on t.v.  I'm not one of the die-hard fans.  So I just view all this circumspectly.  Anyway, I was reading in the paper, they did a Q&A with people on the street and one girl, about 15, said "I kinda hope he dies... because the good guy can't keep winning".  <insert stunned emoticon here>  That just strikes me as wrong, so wrong - especially for someone so young. 

On the news now?  A story about a tourist who was attacked by a shark - 8 foot tiger shark.  Also, tropical depression Cosme is passing south of the islands.  The big island might get a little rain.

Gas was $3.13 on post today.  When we were in NC, the cheapest I saw gas was $2.69 at the Walmart in Elizabeth City.  Milk was $5 a gallon at the Safeway down the block from us, and was totally out of stock on Sunday at the commissary.

Wow and I'm sitting here complaining about $3.49 milk. Schools starts really early over there. Wish you could post some pictures of the beach and stuff. Have fun on your date night. Glad everyone is having fun this summer.
Take care, Chrissie

Sounds like you and your boys are enjoying a great social life!! Nice way to spend the summer...on Waikiki!
I was shocked at the 15yr old's statement on Harry P. Shocking!! It's sad what they find entertaining.
I like HP. I haven't read the books...but I've seen all of the movies.
Milk is expensive where you live!! WOW! It's about $3.90/gal here. Gas is $2.97 at the cheapest. Hope you have a good weekend.
