How My Month Went:

New year, new recap format. (These actually started in February but since it’s only one month, I figured I might as well create one for January and backdate it.) 2023 started off hard with some health scares for my mom and a trip to the ER. She’s doing better now, thankfully, but it was touch and go for a while and threw most of the rest of the month off kilter. Aside from my birthday, most of the month was a wash and I’m glad to see the other side of it. Here’s to calmer waters moving forward.

Considering everything that was going on (and going wrong), I was happy to read as much as I did. Audiobooks continue to be a gift.
