Total # of books for the year: 10.  This week has been interesting.  Just as I was beginning to figure out a new routine, I sprained my ankle and, due to a couple of other injuries and physical limitations, exercising went out the window.  Then, I went to a doctor’s appointment to meet my new PC, and I discovered that the quality of care at the VA clinic I go to has completely changed.  Before, many of the people working there were rude and not very helpful, wait times for anything were worse than the DMV, and my former PC spent more time lecturing me than working with me to improve my health or informing me about any of my lab results.  Now, every person I came across was friendly and more than willing to help, I never waited more than ten minutes for anything, and my new PC is the best doctor I’ve ever had in my life.  I was with her for an hour and left feeling as if, finally, I received the health care I needed.  On Saturday, the Boyfriend and I finally went to see Dead Pool.  Afterwards, we binge-watched the second half of the final season of Mad Men.  Both were amazing, but this is a book blog so I’ll spare you my ravings.

  1. That’s awesome that they’ve changed! I watched the 60 Minutes episode on the VA system and was a little taken aback. Even with some really horrible clinics I’ve been to, I could at least get in within two weeks. Well, disregard that for pain clinics, they don’t seem to be able to keep doctors for longer than a year where I live now. But general health clinics I’ve never had trouble getting into.
    I’m glad you enjoyed Deadpool- I need to see that and Star Wars to get back into my geek game.
