Damn... almost six years ago, that was my first post.
This is my 3000th.
When I started this blog, I was single, in my 20s, broke, and angry.
Now I'm married, with two kids, in my 30s... broke, and angry.
But it's a different kinda broke, and a different kinda angry. A better kinda broke and angry.
Then I was broke because I had been unemployed for a couple months (and was unemployed for two and a half months afterwards), had run through my savings, and I was having a hell of a time getting my unemployment benefits from the state of AZ (which is apparently a common problem).
Now I'm broke because of kids and lawyers, and moving half way across a continent... but it's a much better kinda broke. For one thing I have a regular and good income... it's just my outgo is... substantial.
Worth it though, and hopefully soon that outgo will still be substantial, but will be directed to our own ranch; instead of paying off lawyers and debts (most of which were incurred because of lawyers).
At the time I was angry because of Politics.
Today I'm angry because of... Politics.
But I yell and break things much less now.
