I got labs done to make sure the MRA will be safe and this is the second time I've had labs at that center and also the second time that my forearm is literally purple. The same (only?) phlebotomist both times refused to even try my perfectly good anicubital and stuck me three times to get enough blood from veins that I told her wouldn't work. Next time the rheumatologist wants labs, I'm going to try to convince her to let me drive to my home center where all the phlebotomists can get blood immediately leaving no bruises.
I was late enough coming home that I hit a lot of traffic and spent an hour going 4.4 miles south from I-66. When I got home, I did some gluing for beading on the porch (glue that has to be used outside or with industrial venting) and a little squirrel came up to me chattering that I put seed in the feeder. I'd planned to do that after I beaded, and apparently the little guy wasn't willing to wait. Once I stood up, put the beading in the storeroom to dry safely, and filled the feeder, it ran away and hasn't come back.
