I started back up to work last Monday, and I am TIRED!
We called this blog the Quirky Workin Moms, because that is who we are. We are both moms who work. HARD!
I work for two eye doctors as an optician. I L O V E my job so, so much. However, during this pandemic, I’ve faced many challenges.
I don’t know if you’ve been to an eye doctor recently, but the thing about my profession, is we are in your face ALL. THE. TIME!
I could not do my job, 6 feet away. It’d be impossible. From measuring your glasses, to adjusting them, or training you to put contact lenses is. I’m right there, 6 inches away.
I have found a few things to be useful though during these crazy times, and it’s nothing new. It has given me some piece of mind!
PPE has been a must. I wear a mask majority of the day. If you are in my optical, I have my mask on.
Excessively washing my hands, and using hand sanitizer. My hands are fried. I’m not sure if they will ever recover.
Coming home and putting clothes right in the laundry basket. I don’t want to bring any germs into my house where I could potentially expose my family.
Shoes are kept OUTSIDE! It’s a rule I strictly follow at this point.
It has been difficult getting used to this new “normal”, but I am so grateful to have a job that has opened back up!
I hope everyone stays healthy and safe.
And if you’re essential, THANK YOU!!!
See you all next Thursday!
