Woke up at 7 and fell back asleep until 8.
Fail 2 :
Quest Diagnostics tells me that my blood work must be completed between the hours of 6 and 9 am. it was 10:15 when I arrived. No, Dr. P. did not tell me this. Surprise, surprise.
Quest does not have the other tests that I need to take - home tests.
Trying to be super productive, I begin packing up our junk. I pick up the box and the bottom falls out. I get to repack the drawers as I cannot find anything but scotch tape - which ironically I found on the floor thanks to my p.o.s. box.
