It's funny to ring in the new year by recovering from surgery!!! Slowly feeling better every day, I just gotta hang in there.
I wish there were an easier way to upload pictures and what not. It would of course, make blogging much more interesting to read what with neat pictures and all~ Though, I can try to capture my audience with storytelling?
