My mom moved in with me 3.5 years ago and since then most of my time has been spent going to work then coming home and doing everything to take care of the house and help her with her needs. I admit it was a difficult transition. I've developed some bad habits (probably related to a little depression) but I've decided recently to make the most of my current circumstances.
Today I made a list of 40+ recipes that I would like to learn how to make. These consist of ones that I have never made before, or ones that I'd like to make from scratch, or healthier. I set a goal of making one new recipe every 1-2 weeks. If I do, I'll have learned at least 20+ new recipes by the end of the year.
I also plan to watch a little less TV and perhaps try to do some 15 minute work out videos in that time instead.
What are other things we can do, plan to learn, or improve upon while we are caregiving?
