Three Breathless Minutes

Five years of frustration, planning, paperwork, and waiting came to an end on Friday morning.

The Hawaii State Department of Land and Natural Resources Board voted to approve Mom's permit application.

Translation: Mom finally has the official okay for her house.

:) :) :) ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! :) :) :)

Let the building begin!

Speaking of building, we've decided that I'm going to help. I have no actual building or carpentry skills, but as long as someone more knowledgeable says "get that" or "hold this here" I think I'll be useful. Or, to be more precise, Mom thinks I'll be useful.

After that, Mom and I get to go back to Oahu, corral five unwilling cats into carriers for a trip to the vet to be sedated, then onto a helicopter for the ride to their new home.

Stressful? What makes you think it's going to be stressful?

Pray for us...

Please send my best wishes to your mom. That's wonderful news. So what do you think will cause more stress: the construction or the kitty 'copter ride?

Wow -- finally! Big hugs to your mom and to you (and all the kitties, too). When will the building start? Be sure to take tons and tons of pictures!!!

Hey Amy...

I'm from Molokai and go to Wailau all the time. I'm just writing to say "hi" and to check to make sure that all of your mom's cats are "fixed." I know one of the cats is actually from Wailau, right? We have a HUGE cat problem on the west end of Molokai right now and I'd hate to see something like that happen in Wailau... All the best to you and your mom.
