I know what you’re thinking! How could she be sad over this COVID pandemic “ending”?!
I’m not sad that it’s ending and life is getting more normal. I’m sad because I’m back to work. 40 hours a week gone from my family.
I can’t wake up and make a decent breakfast and sit down with my family and enjoy it.
I’m not outside hangin with the girls in the kiddie pool.
I’m getting home at 5 o’clock having to hurry and think what we’ll have for dinner knowing we’ll be getting take out anyway.
My kids have absolutely NO sleep routine. Actually no routine at all for anything.
My grocery bill is still through the roof. Actually all my bills are.
My house is NEVER clean because they’re home all day long.
Our weekends are washed away with the piles of laundry I can’t get to during the week.
I am grateful and thankful for my job. I love what I do, and I love the place I work.
I just find that I am struggling to get there a bit more these days knowing how wonderful that extra time was with my family.
Last weekend we went camping & it was 48 hours of family time. I cherished every moment because it doesn’t happen often.
Yes, I do think these “post-COVID blues” are a real thing and not many people are talking about it.
Are you feeling the struggle as well?!
Thanks for reading my short and sweet post.
