Throwing Caution To The Wind

I can’t afford a vacation but I live for traveling and experiencing new places. It’s what keeps me going as I drag my ass out of bed and off to a job that makes me feel just like everybody else. When I’m lonely and sad because my wife is working overnights I remember we work…

A Shopaholic Was Born
