I spent so much time on various buses today (or waiting for them) that I read half of Fifty Shades Darker and all of Fifty Shades Freed, then started the first book of the Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne, Hounded. I can’t say how grateful I am to have my Nook on days like this. […]
I started a new series at Fibrant Living today about being an active part of your own health care team. It’s important for anyone, but vital for those of us with complex or chronic conditions. I got to go to the library again today, thanks to Steven! We also had a great lunch at Johnny’s […]
