The more things change the more they stay the same.
Except so much has changed.
I am not sure where you are, but in my part of the world we are on strict Stay At Home orders until at least the end of April.
Our schools closed right before St, Patrick’s Day. Due to the nature of my job I have only been home myself now for six days.
I like everyone, am trying to figure out my new normal.
My daughter is about to start her second week of homeschooling and I’m thankful we have a district that planned and has worked hard to make things not too painful on us.
I’m the midst of this … I’m starting a new job.
So… I’m trying to control what I can control. It’s something I have been doing since G and I first left her Dad. I get up. I do my hair. I get dressed. I even put on makeup. You may say why? I mean if you have been on a ZOOM meeting all bets are off.
But this is my ritual. My thing that I can control in a world that feels so out of control.
It’s my time to quiet my head. Or do my checklist for the day.
The big difference is now I put on a T-shirt, leggings and comfy socks.
With so much feeling out of sync, it’s ok to have those things, Please know though, the days of fake lashes and foundation are probably on hiatus, but a good mascara, lipgloss and a Bobby pin in my bangs make me feel better.
They say the more things change the more they stay the same.
For me I need this same, as trivial and silly as it may seem.
It’s my anchor.
I hope you have one too Mommas.
I am sending you so much love.
