thank you santa

Sunday, we did lots of cleaning and worked on our nengajo (New Years cards).

Santa (aka Satoshi) was nice, for Christmas he gave me a ticket to Hawaii to spend New Years with my family.

Actually Satoshi is working this New Years and has some business in Hawaii.

And since MIL is still in the hospital, we won't be getting together in Kyoto for our usual New Years gathering.

So, Satoshi thought it would be nice for me to go to Hawaii too, even though he has to work.

Am feeling a bit achy and think I may be coming down with something.

Still, I hope to see some friends, visit with family and eat some comfort foods during the time I'm there.

WOW! That's great. I'm kinda jealous. This is the year we spend the holidays in IL.

Last year was the 1st time I was in HNL for New Years and I couldn't believe the fireworks and smoke. The entire city was blanketed in a cloud of smoke so thick that you could barely see the fireworks!

Sorry you weren't feeling well at the start of your trip, but you really rallied in the end. Satoshi is a great guy, no wonder you've kept him around for 11 years!

Thanks Manju, he is a keeper and said that the receipt is no longer valid to return him at the store :)

Take care.
