Well I've gotten my traditional Christmas cold a week in advance. Head is stopped up this morning and my throat is sore. I'm hoping this means that I'll actually be cold-free on Christmas itself. The last two years I've taken a cold like two days before Christmas and been in the worst part of it on the day itself.
Fortunately I had already scheduled today off from work because I had vacation time left to burn, so I can just laze around and get better. I've had breakfast and now I'm checking email and the usual stuff.
