Well Hello! Yes I am still around and I am shocked when I logged in here and saw that it really had only been a year since I last blogged! Seriously thought it was longer than that. If you can say something about my blog style, I am consistent with being inconsistent in blogging. I mean I have always been told “blog for business” “if you don’t blog you won’t reach your customers” well obviously I have not been blogging and still thankfully have a steady business. Or should say HAD a steady business until March 24th when the governor shut us down for being “non-essential.”
While truly I am loving this time at home. I have cleaned out closets, the garage, and sold things we no longer needed, I think we all need our busy lifestyles back. My daughter misses her friends, school and gymnastics. My son is missing his last 1/2 of 8th grade, he is most sad about his last season of track. I miss watching my kids compete, I absolutely love watching them challenge themselves and seeing the pride in their smiles when they do better than they anticipate. I miss my husband having a “normal” work week. I miss photography. I miss my all my AGP babies and little ones! More on what we all miss later on another blog. Yes I plan to do more blogging since I am caught up on editing for the first time in what seems like forever.
Can I go back to early March? Pretty Please? Can I go back to that facial room at His & Hers with Stephanie discussing all this Corona Virus stuff and telling her “Hey I am not going to worry until Reg worries because he literally never worries about anything unless its a stopped skyliner at Disney or an airplane ride.” So we go on, she’s doing all her magic stuff to my face to hopefully make me look younger and well rested and we are talking about her upcoming Disney girls trip. She shares a love for Disney just like I do, perhaps hers is possibly bigger. She is an “Epcot Mom” and I am a “Magic Kingdom Mom.” Don’t know what those are, look them up lol. We were saying “Oh Disney NEVER closes, ever for hurricanes, you’ll be fine to go, just wash your hands.” She finishes her magic, my face feels soft like a baby butt and I go back to the studio.
Disclaimer: Her facial room is a lot more relaxing looking than this, this was just the only photo of it on hand right now since she is closed down also. Book one with her, try it for yourself! #beautybybatton (Stephanie Batton @ His & Hers Day Spa)
Welp 3 hours after saying “I won’t worry til he worries” all hell broke loose!! He calls, saying call your Dad tell him to stay home, the kids need out of school and it needs closed, you can’t take the girls out of the hotel this weekend for Alee’s birthday trip, it’s going to get bad quickly and no one is prepared. Talk about panicking, again my husband again never worries, so I was like “oh Crap here we go!” For petes sake, I was at lunch a week prior with my bff and we were laughing at Corona memes and now we are buckling down and feeling the need to buy a toilet paper!
Text Stephanie like “ummm ya remember what I said this morning, now it’s time to worry.” Call parents and tell them to stay home. Go to the school ask about how absences will work if there is an impending pandemic coming and they don’t close. Figure out how to pull off a great birthday weekend for your 10 year old since you shouldn’t be in public. Stay calm on the outside because you can’t pass your fears onto your kids, but on the inside you are crumbling because of all of these unknowns.
Do you remember the time when you realized all of this was a lot more serious than you initially were thinking?
Cover photo is of my view each morning. Don’t diss “ohhh she has a Christmas tree up!” Listen, my big momma 12 foot is gone and packed away, this is a little pencil tree that only has my antique ornaments on it and it makes me smile.
Throwing a pic of Disney from February in here because I love it and miss is so much! See ya real soon!
