Scarily, the day before, the lady who owns the lodge called and said my check to pay the balance of our renting the lodge never arrived. o_O Terrified, I started having nightmares of late fees and cancelled bookings and having to do all the dang invitations over again because we had a change of venue.
But then she found my check, and things were fine.
Lab is going okay. I tried the new XTerminator procedure for Monday's sequencing and it didn't work, which meant I spent the rest of the day working to get back to where I was at the beginning of the day. I did the ethanol precip today, which took most of the day with 48 samples, and then polished it off with some leaf grinding, a trip to the copy center to correct a stamp problem at the herbarium, and a nice chat with my advisor in the hallway.
A few stressors are gnawing at me. Must ignore.
