Ok can we all admit we did not see this coming, we expect gloom and sadness but this is something entirely different. This is eerie to say the least. Kind of like that scene in a horror movie when the creepy music starts playing and you don’t know if the character is going to get hacked or make it out of the house without tripping. You have no idea what’s going to happen next, but you know its probably bad.
My husband graduated with his Masters Degree on the 15th, about a week ago, and instead of a traditional ceremony they did a digital version. Like so many other graduates this year. 2020 what a year. His cap and stole will be sent in the mail, but I wanted to still commemorate this moment. It feels like just yesterday, he was applying for his Masters and we packed up all our stuff and moved to California and now he’s done. What’s next, where will we end up. This is the end of one thing but the start of something else, and in such a weird time. The wold is on pause.
Putting all of that aside, I still get dressed up when I leave the house. Even if I’m just going to the supermarket. I’ve fallen behind on my work outs and have been eating a lot of bread. On Memorial Day, (this past Monday) I put on my favorite jeans and made a conscious decision that even though, I too have been struggling with the gloom and glum of the entire situation. I was ready to really embrace this new normal and stop thinking about 2019, in 6 months it will be 2021. Time to close the deal.
I have listed the pieces I’m wearing down below. hey keep your head up this will pass. (A message to you and me)
