Nothing, really. Maybe summer ending because I really enjoy lazy mornings and being schedule free.

Megan and I are gearing back up  for regular video days again over on our YouTube channel Long Story Short with Megan and Wendy.  Even though we’ve published new content all summer long, we haven’t recorded new videos on any kind of regular schedule since the kids have been out of school.

Old School Blogging

I have a confession: I sometimes like participating in blogging memes.

I saw two in my Facebook feed this morning and then a third this afternoon.  I might be in meme overload by the time I’m done but what the heck.  Memes remind me when I first started blogging; a time when I was trying to figure out my niche and wondered who the hell was even going to read my blog.  Old school.

Which brings me to The Miss Elaine-ous Life.  She hosts a monthly meme called Old School Blogging and for June we’re supposed to follow the alphabet in this meme.  Just for fun.

Alphabet Meme

A.  Attached or single?  Attached.  12 years next month.
