Thanks for showing up for our blog launch! We’re Mel. You’ve heard of Brangelina? Bennifer? Kimye? Since we’re another great couple – best buds from way (OK, waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay) back, we’ve adopted the joined name thing to simplify. M and El – get it? Mel! So easy.
We’re counting on you to help us evolve. Our whole point in showing up here is to give us a venue to chat about our concerns, share info, motivate each other, inspire each other, support each other and to be accountable for the life- style changes we say we want to make.
We’re not sure what our long-term format is yet. The general plan is to check in 2-3 times per week to cover any of the goals set forth above. To share ideas, opinions, recipes, information, and – on occasion – to just vent (we’ll try not to overdo that, but no promises!).
Check back on Friday for our first ‘Friday Five’ – an assortment of five brief points. Sometimes they will be random points, sometimes they will be connected. But they will always either be interesting, educational, motivational, entertaining or a combo of all!
Until then, we leave you with this original truism:
You know you’re over 50 when: you injure yourself putting on make-up. Eyeliner and mascara become vicious weapons in the hands of those with blurred vision who have to take their glasses off to apply them.
