I barely got out of September unscathed. I say barely because I am up at 6:05AM with inflamed sinuses and tinnitus that could rival the warning tone on many home alarm systems. Thank God for white noise. I’d like to get my jaw fixed, which is causing all this nonsense, but some sadistic being in… Continue reading My September Grind & Jaw Surgery Update
Hello, my name is Kara and I am a Jackie Bradley Jr. apologist. I’ve been a fan since 2013. I thought he was the next coming of Christ that year as he had his way at Spring Training, the minors, and then the Red Sox.
