I have not worked through all of it yet as we have been busy shifting from a home based life to packing the van up andContinue reading “Captain’s Log 5/27/20”
Well s^%*. It’s been so long I am not sure if should leave a snarky comment or some other BS. This is all so confusing. Here is the deal; my amazing wife, son, dog, and I have decide to sell most of our crap and pack up in the van and head to Florida whereContinue reading “Captain’s Log 4/19/20”
