Come the second week of May I will, very reluctantly as you may guess, be boarding a plane back to Pa. I was hoping to find a summer place out here in Maui or perhaps one of the other islands but to no avail. I was going to stay in the room until after Memorial Day but the landlady cancelled a trip they were going on, and with the son returning from college in said second week, I just went ahead and booked the flight.
It made sense to do so and I’ll keep looking for a summer place from back east. Should something arise I can hop a plane back at anytime, but if not, I will stay in Pa. for the summer, returning in Sept.
As one might guess, I am not looking forward to another 3 or 4 months in a place I hate. It’s not going to be easy and I will be bored out of my mind. But, I will get to see family again, many who are aging fast now. And I will eat too much and probably put on more weight. Still, I feel better than last year when I went up there, and maybe I can find something to amuse me whilst counting down the days until I return.
One real good thing about this move, I will be able to sock away a substantial amount of money during my stay. It means when I return I will have a nice financial cushion going into the fall, so I won’t have to spend all my time sitting in front of the computatater and instead will be able to go out and explore Maui in more depth.
So, I have about a month to go before I leave the land of sunshine and warmth for the cold and dreary. Hopefully, the summer will pass quickly and I can get back to living again where is life is so much more better. I promise not to bore you with tales of misery all said summer like last year. But on the other hand, don’t expect a lot of posts. Pa. is not the most inspiring place for writing.
In the meantime, I will enjoy what time I have left here.
