I’ve been trying desperately to relax and unwind from a very busy holiday season. This is my son’s 3rd day back to school since Christmas, the house is a mess, I’m behind on chores, I don’t have meals made for my son’s gluten free, restricted egg and dairy diet, I have more work to do than energy…

I’m sitting in my car with my son, waiting for traffic to pass – freezing – it’s 10° outside- my son is all bundled up and my jacket is unzipped – my gloves aren’t on either. But we’re making every moment count!
