The Dad of Sandbox Threads and my tonsil problem

I really love running Sandbox Threads, and I obviously have greater "ownership" in Sandbox Threads than any other job I have held. The one drawback of being a small business owner, though, is that you can't really call in sick (I'd just be calling myself).

This past Saturday, Elizabeth, the mom of SBT, left to attend a conference leaving Ben and I to fend for ourselves. All was going well until Monday afternoon when my throat started hurting a bit. By Tuesday morning, I could barely get out of bed, and after going to the doctor yesterday, I learned that I have a pretty severe tonsil problem that may require some form of surgery.

Ben has been a real trooper during this whole ordeal. He's been very content playing alone while I was curled up on the couch. And we are very grateful to have Elizabeth back home.

The main reason I decided to share this story is for those of you who have ordered from Sandbox Threads. Your order may take a day or two longer to get processed and shipped. I'm caught up as of Thursday morning, but I also go to the doctor at noon to find out my fate.

Wish me luck, and also be sure to check out the new designs we just introduced last night at Sandbox Threads.

No surgery necessary. It's just severe tonsillitis. And on top of my antibiotics, they gave me some hydrocodone for the pain, so now...all is good.

Boo! That stinks. Very cute entry though - love the cartoon. You should get Eliz to go get you some Mrs. Grass's chicken noodle soup. It has healing powers beyond my comprehension - there has to be something illegal in there. I am sending good mojo your way!
