Nope. All they had out where angels. Which is just weird. They always have stuff from every season out. I don't know if they are changing that or what.

Good afternoon,

Long day at work, it wasn't busy, so it made the day go slowly. I am just happy to have tomorrow off. I have three days off this week because of Independence Day, but I don't have 2 off in a row. I have Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday off, so as Charlie Brown says, "Rats!" Just sitting and relaxing, watching Tommy Boy, such a stupid funny movie, I have always liked this one.

Not much more going on today.

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!

See, I'm allergic to something in the Triple Antibiotic creams and he said one of those ingedients is in the eye drops... He told me to stop taking those eye drops and he gave me a new prescription for a different kind of drops with a different antibiotic in them! Here we are Saturday now, and I look and feel great, my eye isn't as red, the swelling is almost gone and it doesn't itch any longer!

I believe I'm going to call my doctor on Monday and tell him, "He's the man, that was a great call by him...."
