While washing my face this morning, my leg started to itch and I looked down and saw a mosquito biting me! I took a swing at it but missed … damn! We’ve had so much rain here recently that it probably created a perfect breeding environment for these little parasites!
Anyway … good morning, peeps! It’s the start of another week and it looks like it’s gonna be another busy one. First of all, this date October 4th was declared “Edith & Keiji Kawakami Day” by former mayor Mufi Hannemann two years ago, so we’re having a dinner for my mom at our house tonight. And although my dad is no longer with us physically, I know he’ll be right there with us in spirit! Also got lots of stuff to do for IOLANI and ManoaDNA … gotta keep the momentum going! A BIG MAHALO! to all of you for coming down to our store to visit and support us during these tough economic times … it truly means a lot to me and my family, and I’ve enjoyed the opportunity to meet and talk story with many of you!
Oh yeah, did I mention that I swung my squash racquet for the first time since I re-injured my wrist? I went down to the club last Friday and did some forehand and backhand drills for about 20 minutes … my wrist was fine! I’m going to go back today and maybe play a game or two to test it out some more … won’t push it, though – hate to re-injure it again! I’m also going to start stand-up paddling again in order to build my core strength and endurance … I’ll definitely need it since we’ve got a busy year coming up!
