Not In Jersey: May 2013 May 2013 - Not In Jersey

May In Review

Friday, May 31, 2013

May was a relatively good month for me. It started out badly, with the unknown of how I would heal from the complications I faced after surgery. Now, at the end of the month, I’m feeling better, even though I still have a ways to go. Here are some of the highlights of this month.

Family Activities:
