Life lessons from 90s television
My weekend was extremely low-key. The weather was pretty gloomy, so I spent lots of time inside doing chores and working on the blog. On those kinds of days, I always have old television shows playing in the background.
While I was in the middle of a Charles in Charge marathon, I had a very random idea for today’s post.
It’s intended to be completely lighthearted, and I hope that all of my fellow TV buffs out there enjoy it!
