A Generation Xer's caregiving journey

Not Until I’ve had My Coffee!


This is what my Mama (my great grandmother) used to say to each and everyone of us young ‘uns when we were babies and toddlers waking up to a new day.

Mama knew the importance of taking time out in the morning for oneself,  before starting off the day. Even if this means us being in our beds/cribs for an extra 15 minutes or so.

Now I find myself telling people  “Not until I’ve had my coffee!”

Now with working  and caregiving, it can be easy to forget about yourself.

How do you take time for yourself first thing in the morning or anytime that you need a timeout?
