I find that I spend a good deal of time striving for organization in my life.  I could not keep the schedule I keep without organization.  You see I work two jobs: as a clinician Doctor of Nursing Practice & Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, seeing patients three days each week and as an adjunct Assistant Professor with a local university. I am also a parent of two and a wife, a sister and a friend.  Try to squeeze in exercise and an occasional movie and that’s all the time we have.  Yet, I try to find more….time to write a monthly magazine column (TidewaterFamily.com), time to make a TV appearance (https://www.wtkr.com/coast-live), and time to write my third book (Raising Today’s Toddler).  I’ve had some success at this. I completed my masters and doctoral degrees while raising 2 kids and being the wife of a Navy spouse (who was often deployed). I have published a book: Raising Today’s Baby and it’s update:  Raising Today’s Baby, 2nd edition, available on amazon (https://www.amazon.com/Raising-Todays-Baby-complete-parenting/), and having survived generally up to this point (barely).  Don’t get me wrong.  I still MUST sleep.  I still get sick.  I still am HUMAN. I still have bad days.  I still fall short. I just believe that with a LITTLE more organization, you spend LESS time looking for lost keys and more time getting your GOALS accomplished. So this month I wrote my Tidewater family article on organization tips (https://www.tidewaterfamily.com/health/plan-to-be-organized).  I wish for you a more organized year and less lost keys.
