Being a Grown Up

Day 2 - I have to start with Day 2 and go back, but first I'm starting here.

It's 9:30pm KONA, HI time. I just made it back to the 'summer house'. For some, not be a big deal. Man, it's DARK here at night. And no, I don't mean, it's dark and there are shadows - it's JUST DARK. To my best account, I must have driven past the house, oh, I don't know, 4 times..... For me - well, this is a big deal.

My phone is almost dead. Doesn't really matter anyway, I have no one to call who could actually get me to this house. But, there is a map. Obviously, not doing me a lot of good......

Tonight, I took Shan and Michael to the aiport. Then from there - I was on my own. Two weeks. Nothing I HAVE to do, nowhere I HAVE to be.

Years ago, it took me the longest time to realize "I'm a grown up now". I've had babies, I've run businesses, I even bought a car once (and that's when I knew, I was grown up), bought a house, sold a house, bought another house. Bought a business, sold a business. Had a baby, had another baby. BUT this, getting home in the dark in a place I've only been for 24 hours, in a car that is only mine for 30 days. Well, I'm either reverted back to being a teenager or I really am capable of doing all this.....
