We are here! Punk was pretty good on the plane rides considering that he was pretty much forced to sit in my lap for 12 hours. I wish he would go to sleep now (it's 10:30 at home he should be completely wiped, but he's crawling around here bonking on everything he can reach and watching Ocean's Eleven. I'm going to try to go to bed soon...hopefully I'll be able to write a little bit about what we are doing everyday.

Hawaii *Woot*

Going to Oahu this week and I'll be there 8 nights, 9 days. Hopefully I'll get a chance while I'm there to blog some amazing food and maybe even some pretty pictures. If you've been and have a food or activity suggestion you should lay it on me and I'm trying to get things partially planned before we leave.

Stockupportunity - Huggies

I was at Walmart tonight and they have Huggies Jumbo packs for $8.97 (other brands might have been that price too, I didn't really look close, but will look when I go tomorrow). Combine that price with the $1.50 Huggies coupons that are so prevalent (via the internet, mailers or Sunday coupons) and that makes Huggies size 3 diapers less than $.19 each. Huggies is lowering the number of diapers per package so stock up while the bigger packages are still on the shelves!

ETA: This seems to be only at the Walmart at Elliot and Priest in Tempe (I went to another Walmart that did not have the markdown) and it does appear that all the other brands were also a reduced price. I bought 7 packages of size 3s today and spent a little less than $53 with tax, that is less than $.19 per diaper even with tax included in the price!

Not so much for me, but for all the other people who don't have access to the information they should have. The airwing ombudsmen are releasing information, it is tentative, but at least it is information. The ship's ombudsmen are still playing the "we don't know anything" and the "nothing is set officially" lines...which I really am having trouble believing considering that the airwing ombudsmen aren't even playing the "tentative" line (although we all know that nothing is in stone until it's done with the military). I got the information from an airwing ombudsman, but there are a lot of people that would like to be making plans and it's frustrating to belong to a command that seems to think that they only have control if they keep everyone else in the do you expect people to feel empowered, to BE empowered, if you don't give allow them the information necessary to make decisions? Just grrrr...
