Before and after appointments each day, I rested more than I have in a long time, and I did what I haven't done in years: I watched a lot, I mean oodles, of television. While my kids were awake, I sat bundled up with them in the evenings watching their favorite shows. It was great quality time. Once they went to bed, I found I could not lie down without hacking, so I propped up in bed and turned on my TV. This is when I came across “The Bachelor.” I had been reading many of my friends' posts on Facebook about their “Bachelor” addiction, so I tuned in to an episode.
