Welcome to a short story of me and it is so nice to meet you.
I am a 41 year old lover of life. if you look to your right, you will find a picture of my 16 year old son son, Thomas Giovanni and myself (The Orange Ninja) at Paul Brown Stadium enjoying MNF and hating the Bengal's first loss of the 2015 season. The most important part, was the look on his face at his very first game. As much as it seems he got ALL his good looks from me, he didn't. The state of KY placed him with my partner and I when he was 11 after neglect was reported and I look forward to the completion of his adoption. He is my everything.
So, obviously... sports are a large part of my life. Football is my all! I love Baseball, Hockey, Soccer... right down to Curling. The Olympics give me red eyes.
I am an avid reader and completing my course on Mentalism. I enjoy television a bit too much. You know that is true when I saw the trailer for American Horror Story: Hotel and I just caught a glimpse of Lady Gaga and screamed like a 5 year old girl over getting a My Little Pony... Oh yeah, I'm a Bronie too. I am a large fan of Manga and Anime and yes, even corny ninja movies...lol.
I love to cook and cook just about anything and everything. Mostly what I grow in my gardens. In fact am finalizing my themed football cookbook geared for men that I am hoping to self-publish on Amazon. I am also writing additional pieces I hope to publish.
I guess you are now wondering why I am here. I do not want to spend to much time on this, so cliff notes my newly found friends and cohorts. My best friend and Mother... my biggest fan, earned her wings on December 19, 2013. Starting with a shoulder re-construction, including 2 metal brackets being inserted in my dominant shoulder on January 3, 2014... that was followed by two elbow surgeries on that same arm. The first an Ulnar Nerve Transposition because it was compromised; then same elbow scope to remove debris and some has broken off since. 2 days before this surgery I had a slip and fall at a local business jamming my left femur into my pelvis leading to knee surgery where they found a 3cm chondral lesion. That is huge and means I need a new knee. Even worse, i now have compressed nerves in my lower back and neck so I experience numbness and tingling in my lower and upper extremities. Finally, on my son's 16th birthday I suffered a terrible concussion and am now left with Left Front Temporal Lobe Seizures that I have almost daily. Ironically this is also the day I lost ALL my income.
NOW... back to the positive!!! I'm a fighter. I will not quit. That is the way I have raised my son and that is the way my little bitty 4'10", 80Lb mother raised me. I will always land on my feet... or my head so it seems...LOL. I don't know how I will afford this program, but maybe some luck will be on my side. I am here to learn all I can and create an extensive marketing connection that will last a business lifetime and be very lucrative for us all!!!
