UPDATE: 12-30-09: I’m feeling better. I still have the ear infection, but overall things are much better. I’m going to get back at it today – and that will include a bit of blogging as well as removing a tremendous amount of snow from the driveway and walks around our place. The fresh air should do me good…

UPDATE 12-28-09: I’m still very ill. Spent Christmas day with an earache. Haven’t been able to hear out of my left ear at all since then. Went to the clinic and got a prescription for some high-powered and spendy antibiotics to kill the ear infection. Hopefully, I’ll be back to blogging soon.

It’s been a tough week. Unfortunately, I remember most of it. Patty and I had just gotten home from the annual Salt Lake Christmas Tour when I began to feel crummy. The next thing I knew, I felt terrible… and I’ve been down with the flu ever since. Patty got a bad cold during the tour week and is still trying to get rid of that too. So we’ve been quite a pair.

We’re both on the mend now. Feeling much better, thank you. Today we wrap a few presents and get ready for the kids, grandkids, and friends to arrive for Christmas dinner tomorrow. I’m actually feeling well enough that I do think this may be fun.

Merry Christmas to all our many friends out there. Have a terrific holiday.
