DV/IPV Sexual Assault

Since Last We Spoke, MLK Day

We slipped away to Philly for a weekend of food and freezing cold. We walked (according to my Fitbit) 10 miles yesterday in said cold, so not surprisingly neither me nor my spouse feel super awesome today. We’re spending the day trying to just take it easy, because tomorrow the weather gods will apparently be unkind to the DC metro area and there’s quite a bit of snow (for us) on the horizon. So while I lounge about eating brownies and watching a marginal John Cusack movie, let me share what I’ve been reading since last we spoke:
