Me 2014

Tuesday boody Tuesday

Just finished my yummy Cream of Wheat. 3 points.

Just don't want to work today. Yeah how is that different from any other day. Really don't have anything fun to do. I gotta finish up 4 peer reviews for my co-workers.

Why do I have to deal with stupid people????

Oh find of the week.

Stopped at Bath and Body works on the way home to get some soap. Never beleive what I found on the clearance table. Black leather scented candles at 75% off. I thought they were so cool. Got them home and they barely smell like leather.

Oh well they were still a good deal.
