Good morning everyone, just checking in after a long while. Hope everyone is doing well. I haven't been up to much. Just trying to avoid the noise so I don't freak out about the flu epidemic (it's not working!!). Now that the holidays are over, I'm back to work and it was tough going in for 5 straight days. At least I had a three day weekend this week and am hoping for a snow/telework day on Wednesday. SingingMom, your trip sounds great. One of my coworkers went over the holidays. I think the week before Christmas he got a day or two in the upper 80s, but after that, the heat wave was over as it was for most of the East Coast. It has been colder than I remember for such a long period of time. I think I would have been bummed had a been in Florida (well, just a little bit anyway). If I went in the winter, I'd definitely be seeking some heat. The crowds would definitely have gotten to me. I'm tentatively looking at an early to mid-May trip. My son graduates college then and he doesn't start his job until August so it will be the first time that we can go when the "masses" aren't there. But it all depends on if he finds a summer job. Macraven, hope you are doing okay and your surgery went well. Everyone, keep healthy!!
