Hello there stunners! It’s been a minute since I have posted on my blog and what better timing to return.
I’m pretty certain that most of you out there are all trying to survive in our new way of living, the quarantine way, the social distancing way, the staying healthy & alive away.
Some of you are in the front lines (Doctors, Nurses, & First Responders), and my family along with the rest of our country and I cannot thank you enough for everything you are doing. Some of you are essential workers such as my husband who’s company needs to help keep hospitals, hotels, businesses open. Some of you are small business owners trying to stay afloat with continuing to provide us with take out, while some are working tirelessly by keeping the stores stocked and open. Some are unfortunately getting laid off which makes it that much harder to take care of themselves and their families.
For those of us parents, we have now taken on a much bigger role at home with homeshcooling and I can tell you first hand that I don’t know how these teachers do it. They deserve SO MUCH MORE for what they do on a daily basis, especially with a class of 30 or more. You are our heroes as well.
My children’s school closed on Friday, March 13, 2020 and I have been home with them and adjusting to homeschooling. Our school was certainly not prepared to close but the teachers are all doing their best to keep in touch with their students and provide work to keep their minds growing. Today, our governor just announced that school will not open for the remainder of this school year and I have to say, that broke my heart. My kids miss their teachers, their friends, their own space away from home. The 5th graders, 8th graders and seniors will miss out on their graduation ceremonies and other monumental events they were all looking forward to, such as their 8th grade field trip to the East Coast, the seniors will miss out on their proms and seeing their friends for the last time before they go off to college.
While we all miss out on this year’s festivities and specific life events, we can’t forget the people who have lost their lives to this wide spread virus we call, Covid-19. I am certain that once our lives return to regular schedule, those celebrations will be delayed. I hate that I have to say this but for us that are sad & upset for “missing out” on events now, some will miss out on events forever and we all have to take that into consideration as well.
Everyone is handling this quaratine life differently but the greater picture is that we are all going through this together and I hope we can all walk away from this learning how to be more compassionate, more resourceful, more humble, much smarter with our income, and appreciate those around us.
Some are going about their day trying to live a normal life with outfit of the day posts, posting about their sponsors, create unimaginable makeup tutorials, talk shit about eachother online, talk about their favorite celebrities, etc, I think it’s great! I understand that people are more sensitive to everything our social media has to offer right now but I can tell you that it’s comforting to know that there is an escape from EVERYTHING COVID-19! It’s depressing, it’s stressful, the news to me creates evern more anxiety because we don’t know what’s accurate, and we don’t know what lays ahead.
Well, I had to get that out. I hope you are all taking the time to heal, get to know yourself better, learn more recipes to prepare for you and or your family, maybe learn a different language, etc. Please take care, stay healthy & stay home!
PS – here’s me, no makeup (haven’t put makeup on for 3 weeks), I did wash & style my hair because I was tired of looking at it up in a bun, & living the #robelife.
