Where have I been?

Dear family, friends, and acquaintances: For those wondering why I haven't been online lately, and haven't been posting to my blog. this is my reason... Four days before our (Nadia and I) 3rd wedding anniversary, on October 2 2021, what was suppose to be a weekend planned celebrating completely changed.

With a machine that had 3GB of ram, you would assume buffering would never happen but it actually buffered more than my 1GB OUYA.
