I'm about 80% recovered. Still have coughing fits but not as much. Just in time too as Mom & I are off on a mini-trip tomorrow. Since my office is closed for the week, I really wanted to go somewhere. At first, I was thinking California or something but then I realized the prices were just too high cause of the holidays. And now with what's happening with the airlines, it turned out for the best after all. So, Mom & I joined one of those Chinese tours -- 3 day bus tour to Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec City & Kingston. Not the best as we're basically spending 1/2 a day in each city so it's very rush rush but it'll be good. Last time I was in Ottawa was 92 or 93. Even earlier for Quebec City which I barely remember.
Sounds like everyone's holidays are going well. Enjoy NYE, whatever you're doing and I'll see y'all in 2010 (with pictures of my trip, of course!).
