#1 And last but not least, the most popular post of 2016 was…… Now I Understand Why My Mom Wouldn’t Go to Bed With Dirty Dishes in the Sink. This post really hit home with people when I first wrote it and continues to do so. This year, when it was share by a really popular FB group, it actually shut down my site for a few days. But at least it was for a good reason.

Happy New Year to all of you.
