Total # of books for the year: 28.  I’m late with this post because it’s Memorial Day; one of the darkest days of the year for me.  It’s not a “happy” day and I don’t “celebrate” it because the definitions of those words don’t match up with what this day means.  Instead, I stay off the internet to avoid all the attempts at patriotism and photos and videos that rip my heart into pieces even more than this day already does.  I don’t go to cookouts or pool parties or waste money on useless crap that is on sale during a day when most people don’t have to work.  Instead, I remember the soldiers I knew personally who were killed while in Iraq or Afghanistan and the funerals I attended for those who came back but couldn’t get those places out of their heads.  I also practice a lot of self-care.  I’ll be back later this week.
