Last year was a very tough year for me! While blogging sounds like rainbows and unicorns and Starbucks and selfies, it is really a ton of work. Last year, I was working 40+ hours a week teaching and then coming home and working 40+ hours a week blogging. I was stretching myself too thin and it was starting to show in more places than one. I went to my bi-annual dentist appointment, and my hygienist told me that I had a very small amount of gingivitis! WHAT?! Ugh! I normally get all perfect marks! She told me that this can be caused by stress and being in too much of a hurry when brushing my teeth. Ugh, again! Check and check! Stress and being in too much of a hurry were pretty much the themes of my life last year!
