Friday, January 29th, 2010

No Water Necessary

Tuesday, January 5th, 2010

Not having full movement of my arm I am seeing how long I can wear the same clothes to bed and during the day before I am put off by the smell. 9 days so far. Not much of a confidence booster this being in pain and incapable of doing anything.
