I had a pretty bad day today. My supply teaching job was difficult to say the least. I should have stayed home, I think. My husband left work an hour early to take my youngest son to a dentist appointment and low and behold a blizzard unexpectantly awaited him when he walked out of the office – one of the many downsides to not having a window view. Needless to say, he got stuck behind a snow plow and was half and hour late getting home to pick up said boy. The dentist office had already called to say not to bother showing up – they were too late. Hope that doesn’t cost us a visit or I’m off to find a dentist with longer office hours.
So, here I am sipping on a glass of wine, not coffee this time as after my day the stronger stuff was called for. I am not really in a frame of mind to research about a crazy or weird species. I already did my quote for the week so I thought I would share some link love. I think today I need some good karma. I think everyday we could all use some good news.
So, included within this post are links to my favorite blogs and science news sites including some articles that I found especially intriguing. Enjoy!
