I hope that my adventures will be something many can relate to, I hope they are funny and bring readers a good chuckle. That is my goal.

I’m baaaack!

Where to begin? No blog-worthy events have occurred for weeks, but finally a few mildly humorous (as opposed to humerus, the long bone of the upper arm that I have not yet broken, praise God) situations have happened. I have acquired a constellation of symptoms that include overwhelming tiredness not associated with any type ofContinue reading “I’m baaaack!”
