So this would normally be my “best of” post. But honestly I just could not write it that way. And so I kept staring at the un-published list of things I wanted to talk about until suddenly this title came to mind. So much more appropriate. Things that kept me sane (whether I actually stayed truly sane is up for debate but we’ll just set that aside). Affiliate links were used in this post to link to items I am discussing anyway.
