Aloha kakahiaka!

Hope you’re all having a great Sunday morning!  I’m going to spend the day at home watching the NFL playoff games and doing some chores … pretty boring stuff.  I’ve been really enjoying this downtime since ManoaDNA is still on its holiday break and I pretty much kept my calendar clear of any commitments.  I’ve also been able to help Carla a little more with IOLANI now that I have more time on my hands.

I stopped at Hank’s Haute (Hot) Dogs yesterday to pick up some lunch – Portuguese, chicken, and original Chicago ‘dogs – along with a large order of their special fries cooked in duck fat … all great stuff, but a cardiologist’s nightmare!  I got home in time to watch the New Orleans Saints beat the Detroit Lions … damn, I wanted the Lions to win since their last playoff game win was back in 1957!  For today, I think the Giants and the Steelers will win their respective games although I’m hoping that Denver can somehow pull it off … but I think the Tebow magic has run its course.

I’ll be taking the boys on their birthday trip next week so my vacation will soon be over … oh well, it was nice while it lasted.  I’m looking forward to it, though, since we’ll be hooking up with our San Francisco “ohana” who we traveled with to Japan for Project Aloha back in October.  It’ll be great to see those guys again …

Aloha, “D”
