Better end to a day that started off annoying.

Monday, August 06, 2012      5 comments

SO I blogged this morning at how annoyed I was with the scale. I seriously wanted to throw it (well not really, it was expensive) but I felt blindsided by the weigh-in. I stayed home today to edit other people's work from my lab. Also, I... Read more
