Road Trip to Minnesota: Day 5 – South Dakota & Home

A big change is about to happen in my life. Not tomorrow, but soon…at least in a few months. My bosses think it’s too soon. I think it’s an eternity. What is it? I’m going to be moving to Minnesota with Paul, so if you know anyone who is hiring, let me know. I know. It’s a big deal. I… Read more »
