A return to work this month meant a return to getting dressed and looking presentable each day! (I’m not gonna lie; I eased into it by sporting leggings, a t-shirt, and a baseball cap my first day back.) It has felt good to get up at a consistent time each day, shower, and dress myself.
Unfortunately, my bangs are as out of control as ever because I have not yet felt comfortable going back to a salon, but I am trying to find ways to cope until I can get them cut again. (Mostly headbands and bobby pins.)
While my outfit reflects the sunny optimism I’ve been trying to maintain about going back to work, my book pick this month goes along with the uncertainty of reopening. I chose “The Tempest” by William Shakespeare because right before the coronavirus pandemic forced everyone into quarantine, our local Shakespeare troupe had announced that this was the play they were going to produce this year. If you’ve followed me for a while, you may recall that I was involved with their production of “The Merry Wives of Windsor” last summer. It was my very first experience with community theatre and I absolutely loved it! Now, we are unsure of what will happen with this year’s production, but my friends and I have already been polishing our acting chops (via Zoom, of course) just in case.
