This weekend I get to do some manual labor, helping my friends move into their new home. While I am looking forward to seeing them, I am still not sure why I volunteered for this. Anyone know a mental health specialist I can go visit to have my head checked? On to the Reads for the Weekend…

Have a great weekend everyone!
