As I write this I am sitting in the surgical waiting area of a local hospital. My husband is having a kidney stone removed. (I call it the demonic kidney stone that has ruined our lives, aka Steve.) That last little parentheses is me being dramatic. Obviously it's not demonic and it hasn’t ruined our lives, it's just felt that way.

I am a chicken. Pretty much. I don't like roller coasters, or haunted houses or scary movies. (Yes, I did write a book about demons. I get the irony.)
