Shoulder Surgery


Tonight at midnight my husband will get up and get prepared for the trip to the hospital. My brother will be driving around 2:30 AM for an hour and a half to the hospital. The surgery is scheduled for 5ish. There was no way I could do the drive that early. Why did they have to schedule out of towners at that hour?

So Tuesday is my drive day. When he gets out of surgery and had time to recover I will dive up to get him and bring him home. I so wish for the days my body would let me be awake at any time and drive to anywhere at any time. I feel bad about not being by his side. We will be face-timing as soon as he can talk. Thank goodness for modern technology!

I will try to keep you all apprised of the situation. And I have a review to post tomorrow so I won’t be gone from the blogosphere for long.

Outlander (Outlander, #1)Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It has been several days since I finished book one. I still feel caught in the afterglow of it.. While I was reading it I binge-watched the show. First with my son and brother. Then with my friend. Then with my husband. So this review includes the book, the audible version and the show.

I borrowed the book from the local e-library. I noticed it came with text-to-speech. But the show was full of Garlic so I didn’t want to hear the TTS mispronouncing those words. So I used my credit to pick up the Audible version to whisper synch.

Narrated by: Davina Porter, made the story come alive. Her voice isn’t like the actor of the show which was a bit of a surprise but Davina did a great job acting the different characters of the book.

I have to admit that I will more often suggest the book over the show. The explicit rape scenes may trigger those who watch the show. The book leaves more to the imagination. It spent more time on the story itself than details of the acts.

My only complaint of the book was that it was so long I didn’t finish before it was due back. Who knew that the email that says a book is due on Monday that you don’t have most of Monday to finish? They took the book back Sunday night at midnight. I was forced to buy the book with only 10% left to read. Oh, well, now I can share it with my husband and read it again someday.

With the trigger warning for the show, I highly recommend the book, audio, and show for everyone. Those days spent back in history, especially in Scotland were dreamy! Wish I could actually go and experience the whole UK.
