Existential Ennui (or where is Danielle’s Daily Routine?) by Deb Danielle Younge-Ullman

My daily routine is having a crisis. It is not quite sure whether it even exists, which makes this an existential crisis. It needs therapy, vitamins, feng shui or possibly a cleanse of some kind. (But not the colonic kind, please.) Seriously, I am not the most regimented of people, though you’d think having first a dog and then adding a child, would have forced it upon me by now….
