Month: September 2011

September 26, 2011 An individual had to pay far more than she had expected simply because she did not read her email entirely. Then she made the cheque out to the wrong name because she did not read the invoice properly. She’s not the only one. I answered a text message too quickly. I read […]

September 25, 2011 I stayed up late last night preparing samples of the new Flax Snack Bar that my friend and I created together. I had spent a few hours over at her place the night before.
