So, this morning when I get up and go look in the mirror, the whole lower part of my face (right under my eye) is all swollen up, my throat is sore and my ears hurts...Looks like I need to make a trip to see my personal doctor this morning to get some antibiotics!

This is a lovely way to start a Friday or any other day that is!
Hope you get feeling better soon!

But today is a trip to the baby doctor!!!!! I'm excited. I've been up since 5:30 and Wifey isn't getting up until 9:00! But the coffee is good and I think it's time for a turkey-sausage biscuit!

Yall have a great day!

Hope all goes well at the Doctor today!!!!

Listen to Kringle Radio! Click the upper right-hand corner of the player on the right-hand side of the screen, and the player will pop out into a separate window. Click the play button, and enjoy! I listened on the way home from work yesterday 'cause it was so dark, gray, and wet outside.

I hope your ills ease up quickly. Hoping it's not a virus---there isn't much to do for a virus except be patient and keep yourself as comfortable as possible.

I'm beginning to know how you feel who are undergoing remodeling ... they're currently remodeling my office building. The overhead lights aren't working ... don't know why! I'm trying to proofread by a 60W CFL desk lamp; it's been so dark and rainy outside, it's like working by candlelight. (Doesn't bother anyone else---all their work is on a computer screen!) I brought along a battery-operated camp lantern to see if that will help today. We move over to the other end of the building starting July 8th. Hopefully the lights will be working over there. In the meantime, they just tore out the kitchenette and moved the refrigerator and coffee machine into a work area. No microwave, no sink. The new kitchenette is supposed to be finished around July 20th.

Except for the insufficient light, it's not so bad. Because of demolition work, the office will be closed July 5th. And it should be nice when they're finished. The building is a former clock factory built in the late 1800s, with big windows and exposed brick walls, and they'll be keeping both features.

Happy (upcoming) Canada Day weekend to my Canadian friends!

You and your wife must be so excited preparing for your little miracle to arrive! It reminds me of my own experience with both my boys - it felt like christmas in our house with all the anticipation and preparations in final weeks. A new baby brings such joy

I hate remodelling and all the mess and stress that go along with it! I hope it is all over soon and you can enjoy the benefits. Sounds like the building has alot of history and it's nice that they have kept those features intact. I love old buildings.

On the brght side atleast you get day after July004th celebrations off!

Merry, I don't see a plcae to click on where I can get to Kringle Radio...I can only see where it says; "Coming soon! MCR-HD will be... Kringle radio"! Am I looking at the wrong thing/ location?
