Grandma's 90th Birthday Part

January chill may have a a grip on Alaska, but back in May 2009, we celebrated my Grandma Ima's 90th birthday. She turned 90 Dec 26th, 2009. We celebrated her birthday in May because it was warmer and heck...once you're 89 1/2, you are in what I like to call the "zone". You may as well celebrate every day both prior to and after turning 90. On the other hand, shouldn't every day of life be a celebration? We are here, we are healthy, we should PARTY like it's 1999!!! And since you haven't seen any posts since May 2009, the assumption can be made that indeed, we've been spending the last 9 months packing in as much fun and special friend and family time as possible. Over the next few months, my goal is to play catch up from the last year so that I can start fresh with THIS year's activities come May 2010.
On May 31st, 2009, we ceremoniously recognized 90 years of Grandma Ima "Working The Problem". Working all those problems kept Grandma sharp. And also spunky. Although, spunky may be too soft a word because no one can win an argument or change her mind. I googled "spunky" and also found "spirited" and "plucky". Googling "spirited", I found "characterized by animation, vigor, or courage". Courage, self-assuredness, vigor. Yes, I think that is closer. Grandma Ima is the only person I know who knows exactly what she needs, when she needs it, and how to implement changes to meet those needs. This goes along with vigor, the definition of which is "the capacity for natural growth and survival" and "active bodily and mental strength".
I think that is it! Grandma was full of Vigor! Happy Birthday Grandma! Here's to another year full of fun, happiness, adventure, and "Working The Problem"!
Parties are HARD work!
The Family!

Your blog is the best one I read, and I'm glad you'll be catching up with more posts. Seriously, you've got exactly the right balance of interesting, tone, accompanying pictures, etc.

I think you've got another career waiting if you ever want it...

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find
this topic to be actually something that I think I would never understand.

It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!

My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type
on several websites for about a year and am nervous about switching
to another platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.

net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
