I couldn't remember if I thanked you for it before, though. You, CM3,and Bradmac--y'all are the best, right along with all the other members who continue to pray, send positive thoughts,etc.

has anyone ever had this happen?....

last night @ the class i noticed a slight tingly feeling in my left jaw close to the back where the top & bottom of the jaw connect. felt funny, not painful. then this a.m. it felt more close to the ear canal under my ear. by afternoon my face/ear area was swollen & uncomfortable. i had hubby put warm peroxide in my ear several times & let it soak trying to open it up maybe. i have an herb pillow i put in the microwave & have laid that side on the pillow. i found some extra antibiotics in the med. cabinet & have started tasking them. i know i don't have anything wrong w/ my teeth as i just recently had a dental check up & x-rays. do y'all think it's the ear?

I'm sure Sugar will be along shortly with an opinion.

In the meantime, my RN wife read this and said it's either sinus infection or ear infection. She strongly recommends a trip to the ER.

My sister got my niece a kids drum set as part of her gift. So I see a headache in my future. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!
That sounds like such a cute idea for a party! I hope your niece enjoyed it and that everyone had a great time.

Elizabeth's first Nutcracker performance was last night, and it was BRILLIANT!! She had the best time, and has already been talking to the people who manage the show about a larger part next year...LOL!

Not only was it my first Nutcraker, it was my first ballet, and I loved it! Well, except for the guy in the tights. Get some shorts on, dude!

Tonight, the entire family is coming, then the last performance is Sunday afternoon. They are meeting us at a restaurant to surprise her after the last show. Nancy and I had a bouquet of flowers last night, and I thought she was going to cry. LOL

I hope y'all have a great day!
Aww! Congratulations to Elizabeth on a great performance! I hope she gets a larger role next year - it sounds like she had a blast! LOL I do support the idea of wearing shorts. i hope you have fun at the restaurant tomorrow, how sweet that they are surprising her!

Hopefully the rain stops soon! I always get so sleepy when it rains for hours straight. I hope that the work goes smoothly for you and the presentation goes well!

Haven't seen him since Monday.
I want to see a good Christmas movie tonight.
But haven't figured it out with one.... Tips?
Poor Isak! I hope he feels better soon. It seems like so many people have a stomach bug. I hope Thomas had a good flight. Hmmm - Christmas Vacation is a personal favorite of mine for this time of year. It really gets me in the decorating spirit!

I don't know why but I just couldn't sleep any longer. ^^ I took a glass of water and I was reading some magazines until 8 o'clock, and then I felt sleepy. I couldn't go back to sleep at 8 in the morning. That would have been too ridiculous.

Anyway, I somehow managed to stay awake until 10 and I went to the town centre. I spent about 4 hours walking in different book shops and I must say I was happy and frustrated at the same time. Happy because there were so many Christmas novels displayed on the shelfs, and sad because I couldn't purchase them all. ^^ But I sweared to myself that someday I will have a huge library at my own place with huge collection of lovely Christmas novels and fictions.

I planned yesterday to do some reading today related to my studies but I had my lunch after I came back home and then started doing some cross-stitching of Christmas present for my godparents. Heh. ^^
Aww, it's always a bummer waking up so early during the weekend. But sometimes if you feel like getting up, you just do! LOL! Try to purchase a couple a month! That way you will have time to enjoy each one :] Have a good evening!

Oh, Meceka, I am so sorry. I will keep you in my prayers. Words can never provide enough comfort, but at least Bo is at peace. ((Hugs))
