If you’re visiting for the first time, it can be a little overwhelming to get caught up on my story. I get that… it’s been a long road, and it gets longer every day.
I would recommend starting here for a general timeline of events, and then moving onto the actual posts.
As for those, if you just want a sampling of what life has been like over the past almost-five years of this journey, I’ve listed those that I think are important, funny, or informative below. It’s still a long list, but it’s only a fraction of the 300+ posts I’ve put out there over the past few years!
Welcome to Thunderdome! 🙂
