Good morning, everyone, it's 11:07am. Today's the first day of August. It kind of sucks for me personally, because today marks two weeks that I've been sick. Main thing is my teeth and the swelling (which is going down), but my stomach also still hurts. I really hope I get better soon. I'm two weeks behind on an important project, and I have to do it. I need to start doing it again really soon, or it will be assumed that I just gave up on it. This month, I'm supposed to see the dentist regularly for my teeth. Anyway, it's a warm day. Mid 80s with some sun. I have more to say, but I need room on this window to blog ;). Here's crime for today.
