Here’s a reminder of some of our adventures – It’s been fun!

Love the song on this video.

For those of you that have happened onto my blog via YouTube, I am a workaholic, living on Maui, and for the past year I have been learning how to have fun.

After 52 weeks, I have completed my journey, and on this posting is a video sharing many of my assorted adventures.

 

If you are planning a trip to Maui, or, if like Steven and me, you live here, and you are interested in seeing all there is to do on Maui, you may want to take a couple of minutes to watch the video; as well as check out the rest of the blog for more information.

Several people have encouraged me to keep going, to keep having fun every week. My response is that next, I’d like to do a blog on home repairs…but Steven adamantly refuses.

But, he has agreed that since there are still things we’d like to do, such as going to Lanai, paragliding, whale watching, etc, we are going to continue having fun, once every four or five weeks. (What can I say, obviously we weren’t cured from being workaholics, and we love what we do.)

 

So, I guess this isn’t good-bye; we will see you next month.

Mahalo to everyone that joined us on our adventures this past year, as well as to everyone that took the time to view my postings. It meant a lot to me!

It’s a Bird. It’s a Plane. No, it’s a Workaholic Ziplining Over Maui

Wow, the universe works in mysterious ways!  The day after I committed to taking five and learning the art of playing, the zipline dropped into my lap (not literally).  There I was, heading out for a walk, when I bumped into my neighbor.  During our conversation I told her how I want to start having fun and learn how to play, and she told me the Piiholo Ranch Zipline was having a deal for kama’ainas (locals) this weekend!  Regularly $190 per person for—get this—$60 each.  It was like a neon sign flashing in my brain, “See! You are meant to have fun, to play! GO and fly the friendly skies on a zipline!”

I think I got a little carried away with the attached video.  At least it’s short. Sorry about the film quality, but the music is great!  Steven and I had a blast!  The best thing was that while being suspended in space I never once thought about all of the work waiting for me back at the office.  How could I while zipping over Maui!  The time went by way too fast; the two hours felt more like 15 minutes. Would love to do it again, but will wait for another kama’aina deal.

I have to admit that once we got back home it was not easy staying out of the office, but I was determined.  Also that night it was hard to fall asleep as thoughts of all that I needed to do started filling up any empty voids in my head.

Don’t know what’s up for next week, but I am sort of looking forward to it.  Maybe I will end up being a cured workaholic after all.
