Hey Chasity! Thanks for the comments and friend request. Where are you in New York? I live in Hells Kitchen and do outpatient therapies at Rusk NYU Medical Center on 34th. Maybe we could meet in person someday.
I am great. Just staying busy and enjoying it too. Yesterday I went to the monster Jam and as soon as I got home my parents took me to a geocaching get together at the amc food court down town Spokane. I was exhausted. So how are you and do you do anything to keep busy? Tonight my parents and I are hosting a birthday party for my baby niece. It is her first birthday.
