Glad to hear you are a bit better. I wish I could cough up crud instead of just coughing and still having it all in my throat. I can't wait until March 8th when I get all my test results and will hopefully find out what is wrong and can be done about it.

What am I doing right now? Getting used to being up at 5:30 in the morning . It's pain program day and I have to run some clean clothes up to Dad on the way to my commuter train. There will definitely be a Starbucks stop along the way!

YES!!! I love my ceramic tiles. They can be a little cold in the morning, but that's what a nice hot cuppa is for!

I hope that means you are on the mend.

If you are laying the tile yourself, mix the grout sealer into the grout. It's much quicker that way. Same thing if you are regrouting tile. BTW, it works for tile walls too. I learned some stuff when working at a store called "Million Carpets and Tiles".

If you are using tile in the kitchen, make sure it is a tile that isn't too slippery when it's wet. I don't know about you guys, but I spill water and other liquids on my kitchen floor.

I just called a client to cancel our meeting for this evening. I have the dreaded lurgy. Caught it from DH. I told the client he really didn't want to catch this one. He will phone me and then put the envelope with his tax stuff in my mail box. I'll wave at him from my kitchen window. (The mailbox is attached to the house, so I won't have to go outside, just open the door.)

I'm sitting at my parents' house trying to figure out if I'm 32 or 33. I am so not old enough to be forgetting my own age. This is not a good sign. I think I'll blame it on the fact that I'm mildly sleep deprived and drove 5 1/2 hours to get here.

Hug the Chief for me! You should see the math I have to do to find out how long I've been married to Shrek...
