Just in case you missed me…

backSorry for not posting in such a long time, I was away on vacation for almost three weeks and then was sick as well as trying to settle back into work and life since being back.

I did, however, manage to watch a bunch of movies lately so I have lots of content to post and now that I’m all better and back into the swing of normal life, reviews will once again be posted for the enjoyment of all…..or at least the few that read them.

Happy reading!
