Finding Me Time

This is new territory for all of us.  We have never been through a global pandemic before so it is not like we can turn to Grandma and ask “How did you cope?”.  We are all learning as we go.  We are figuring it out, and creating our new (temporary) normal in our homes.  First of all, I want to say that I am grateful that my family is safe and under one roof.  We are thankful for all the essential workers that are still providing for us in the economy.

As a mom of one-year-old twins, I have struggled over the months to find time for myself.
