Hold me. (Kidding. We all know how I feel about that.)
Seriously, though, I am trying. My theme, which I was required to pick, is family. I figure we have enough to last for a longer challenge, but I will attempt to tell the silly, tragic, hopeful, or even the cautionary family tales for the next 31 days.
Additionally, I will link them here for easy finding. Today’s birthday post for my dad is going to count because I sort of told some stories and I don’t think I can dig any deeper on the same day, particularly with the lack of sleep I have racked up this week.
