I’m gearing up to move to the mainland for a month while Chris is recuperating from his kidney transplant, and I play nurse-maid. I am wanting to finish a couple of books with Chris’ help, and work on my big projects of ZooFit- How Animals Changed My Health and Fitness, Stupid Questions, and Conservation Fitness Guide.
