Moving House Across the Country with a Disability, Part 1

I am a nomad. Since 2013, I have changed my home address five times, from Arizona to Minnesota, to New Hampshire, and back to Arizona. Growing up in a military household may shed some light on why I can't stay in one place for too long. Out of everyone in my family, I move the most.

Bad Axe Throwing

Naturally, when I saw that a new axe throwing business was opening close to me, I jumped on the opportunity to participate in their opening weekend festivities. With our crazy busy lives, my husband and I try to make sure that we go on a date night at least once a week and this seemed like the perfect night out. We recruited a few friends who were skeptical (but excited!) to try Bad Axe Throwing with us.
