Seems like the holiday season started much earlier and going on for us. We took off from Nov 9-12th just like that and stayed at home to relax. Then we went to work/school for a week. Again on Nov 22nd, there is a huge snowfall and the whole week is off due to the snow as well as Thanksgiving holidays.
Back to work this week after long break. Once more,this is going to last only a week because the trip to Cancun is coming soooon (we will leave on Dec 4th and back on 15th)
