How did I get Here???

When we started talking about Hawaii, back in 2011… I thought what a great place to retire, yada, yada, yawn…

Reality… Hawaii is just like any other state in America, you make it what it is…

When you are in the military and you get assigned to some hell hole… you look forward to your next assignment, you might even volunteer for another hell hole, just to get out of the one you are in…

My life has never been stay in one spot and thrive… no, I was born with the same itchy foot my ancestors was born with …. but that itch, it has become a different kind of itch…

Trump, Evangelicals, GOP and the corruption they have done, will impact our nation for several decades and my great grand kids are going to have to cope with their parents ignorance and stupidity… but it isn’t all the fault of that generation… it’s everyone’s fault that is alive today… an we all get to live with the consequences…

Covid 19 is the other factor in our decision and choice to get off the fence…it could be 2024 before vaccines are readily available for all of us… so moving.. it’s a scary thought…

Because interest rates are low an we have interest in our property…. we have decided, based on all the factors above… to buy another home here, if we can find one… we have a long check list after 20 years of flipping properties and working on another one… well that view, would have to be breath taking…

So there are factors working against us staying here, but those are very few… the factors working towards us leaving here, are just as few…

But… that one little word… we both have talked about the plantation homes, ever since we moved here and we talked about buying in town…. just because I didn’t write about something, doesn’t mean we didn’t explore other avenues… moving is very costly across the ocean… and with the way things are in the mainland and the world…

Hawaii isn’t a bad place to live, you just got to have the right neighborhood… and our neighborhood changed after the eruption, because they moved in… the ones that lived on the fringe and did what they wanted…. which is why they live out here… they just didn’t expect to run into me…

So, if we can find a home, that meets all our wants, we will be putting our house up for sale and making an offer on the one we want here… that is our goal, an why we are finishing up our projects, so that we can be on the market by spring and moved by summer… to our….

Forever home on Hawaii….

Being in town, gives me more things to do and it gives hubby less land to deal with an more time to golf… so both of us, get what we want… me a bigger home, so the brats can come see us and him, less work and more play… we are seniors ya know…
