And So It Begins…

The Closer I Get….

Bonus points to whoever can guess the artist(s) behind the title. There’s probably multiple songs with those lyrics, but there’s only one in my brain. It’s five days until surgery. I’m not nervous about the surgery – my surgeon is more than capable. It’s all the things that might / maybe / could come outContinue reading “The Closer I Get….”

Too Much Time….
