Marathon Training and All the Books

I'm the girl who made it through grad school and the credential program without really reading anything.  But this book?  I've even made notes in the margins.

Also of note-EYE DOCTOR appointment.  My eye doctor is super expensive.  It kills me.  When I retire I'll probably go blind because I won't be able to afford him.

But there was an earthquake.   And because I was with the doctor I couldn't scream.  I was COOL
