Seriously. I know I keep asking this; but where did 2016 go? I barely had time to keep up with it and now I have to try to get my life for 2017. Whooooosaaaaah. This is when I have to sit back and think about what I accomplished in 2016 and set my goals and aspirations for 2017. Maybe this year won’t fly by like the Flash on steroids. Just saying…
