One year ago, I was sitting and debating what my big, prophetic New Year’s Resolution was going to be. I already knew- I needed to focus on ME. I was talking to my doctor about how unhappy and ragey I had been feeling, and he told me that he and his wife had a standard […]

I know what my son had for lunch today. I kept track of what time he napped, whether he pooped or not, and his daily activities, all while keeping up with the chaos of my workday. I know when my husband’s chiropractor appointment is, and I know that he needs to reschedule his yearly eye […]
