First of all...

...thank you SO much to everyone who took the time to comment on my entry below!! I really value your opinions and there were so many wonderful suggestions - thank you all so much!! I'm going to spend a day or two and try to incorporate some of your suggestions before I send the links off, but I wanted you all to know how much I appreciate you!! Big *HUGS* to you!! :)

Spoke to my Mom for a while this afternoon about her trip to the Big Island this past weekend to see my Grandma. For those of you who haven't heard me speak about her, my Grandma is 93, but still as feisty and as active as ever. She's always trying to make everyone sushi and she's always laughing heartily and hitting people when she finds a joke amusing (and nearly knocks them down...) We've always said that she was so stubborn that she'd probably outlive us all.

My Mom had a nice visit with her (less than four days is a good length of time - any more and I fear they may end up strangling each other) ;) but she said that my Grandma is starting to say things like, "This is the last time I'm going to make sushi" or telling my Mom that it's the last time she'll see her... I guess older people have a different state of mind about dying, but it just makes me so sad to hear her talk that way. :( I always think that she'll live forever.

In sad healthy eating news, it's the birthday of one of my co-workers tomorrow and everyone in the office is ordering food from Choi's Kitchen, one of THE BEST Korean food places around. And aside from Chinese food, one of the types of food that I just can't pass up is Korean food... So I had to order a plate. :P THEN, on Wednesday morning one of my co-workers is picking up breakfast for all of us from Boots & Kimo's - where they have THE BEST Macadamia Nut Pancakes and omeletes around... Not a good week to diet at all!! :(

Well, I'm off to work on fine-tuning those designs. Thanks so much again for all the supportive comments!! Hope you all have a nice week!! Big *HUGS* to you!! :)
