With a couple of clients out of town this week I finally had time to catch up on some much-needed life management. You know, exciting things like cleaning, the dentist, the doctor and organizing the piles of papers on my desk. I also had time to sit down and dream up what's next for The Balanced Life. There are exciting things in the works. I can't wait to bring you new, exciting content in the months ahead! It was a good week all in all and I'm heading into the weekend with a grateful heart.
