It’s the end of the year, and good riddance, I say. This year has been so jam-packed full of, well, everything that I’m ready for a semblance of a fresh start in the new year.

I had my carpal tunnel surgery and am healing well. The doctor confirmed that I definitely needed the surgery afterward, which was affirming. My stitches come out on Jan. 2 and I’m looking forward to getting back to work!

Since I was down for surgery, I read… a lot of books! So expect some mini-reviews from me next month! I look forward to sharing my thoughts on all of them!
