Throughout the quarantine I struggled like most people did. I felt trapped, not willing to risk going anywhere, not even the grocery store. We had everything delivered. My sister and I would strategize on grocery orders and meal plans. One thing became abundantly clear: with all my errands reduced to delivery or put on the back burner, I didn't do anything alone that I truly enjoyed. I even took up some yard work which those that know me know I'm not the outdoorsy type. I'm also not a big workout person; I like to cook but my kids are always around the kitchen and family rooms. (Speaking of, why do my kids only ask for mom?!) I kept hiding out in my room to get a quick break, found escape in Melissa Wood Health and her short videos for people with minimal attention span and realized I had nothing that was mine anymore. I couldn't possibly love my two kids more, but I needed to re-form my identity outside of being C & T's mom. I'd always thought in the back of my mind that I could become a realtor when I was ready. I love the thrill of the hunt, of finding the right anything but especially finding the right place to call home. The thought first entered my mind when we started the search for our home and here we are five years later. Don't give up!
