What a crazy time we are living in right now. I was thinking about the fact that we have been in a “shelter in place” order for almost 8 weeks already. It’s hard to believe it’s been that long that my kids have been out of school, I have been 100% home, and my husband has been home most of the time as well.If someone had told me at the beginning of 2020 that we would be where we are now, I would have said they were nuts! I came into 2020 with what I thought was so much clarity and an incredible vision for the future. Here we are and today and it’s not what I saw, but it is what it is! I thought it would be fun to share my top 10 takeaways so far from all of this time at home.

Here we go…

  1. I’ve learned that I really love to research and find new things to fill my brain.
  2. I have learned that I am not very organized with that information and I am in need of some type of easy organizational method to keep everything categorizedGot any tips for me? I’d love to know! 
  3. I learned what my Myers Brigs personality is too. This was COOL and I plan to do a podcast episode dedicated to this at some point because I found it extremely eye-opening. Do you know your personality type? 
  4. I’ve learned that I don’t have patience when teaching my kids some of their schoolwork -especially the subjects that are taught differently than I learned. Can you say Common Core math?
  5. I’ve learned that I get frustrated because I think my kids should know how to spell and they are not taught spelling in school so both of my kids are terrible at it.
  6. I’ve learned that I am content being at home a majority of the time.
  7. I’ve learned that I have spent WAY too much money on ridiculous things in the past and those things mean nothing.
  8. I’ve learned that being at home with my family isn’t so bad.
  9. I’ve learned that I occasionally need a Mommy Time Out.
  10. I’ve learned that being a casual, not put together, relaxed Mom with kids basically living in their pajamas all the time is ok. It’s who I am and it’s who we are.

So, there you have it… just a few things that I have learned about myself in the last several weeks. I elaborated quite a bit more about this list in my latest Podcast episode 003. Give it a listen!

What about you? What have you learned about yourself during this crazy time? Please leave me a comment below. I would love to know!
