March 3rd...

... is my grandmother's 92nd birthday - and she's just amazing for her age! :D She's a VERY strong and feisty woman and at 92 still lives alone in her big house in Hilo and will still do things like chase chickens out of her backyard with a broomstick or carry burning hibachis across her lawn. :D She's constantly cooking and will make countless pies, tons of sushi, and shrimp tempura whenever we come over to visit. We've always said that she was so strong and stubborn that she'd probably outlive us all. ;) Mark & I are flying to the Big Island next weekend to celebrate her birthday with the entire family. :) I haven't seen her since my uncle passed away several years ago and it'll be so nice to see her next weekend - I can't wait. :)

On a completely different note, work was incredibly stressful today! Out of our office staff of about 12, only four people showed up for work... :P One of our (rather unpopular) sales managers came in while she was sick and passed around her stomach flu virus to all of us earlier this week. :P She must've used everyone's telephone and touched every machine in the office while she was in too, because my co-workers are all dropping like flies. :( Poor things! :( I really hope I'm not the next to go! :(

And speaking of health, thankfully I'm still as motivated as ever with my renewed healthy eating and exercise plan. :) The first couple of weeks are always the hardest for me to adjust. :( Peanut butter cookies call out to me when I'm at the mall and I always feel pulled toward the California Pizza Kitchen during my lunch break. :P If I can just get through these first couple of weeks, I think I'll be okay. :) I just have to keep telling myself that I've done it once before and I know that I can do it again. :)

Oh well, I'm off to crawl into bed. :P Hope you all have a nice evening. :)
