I work from home full time, so staying home wasn’t a huge stretch for me. I discovered grocery delivery long ago, and amazon prime has kept me from stepping foot in a Target in years, so when we were told not to leave our houses unless it was an emergency I was more than prepared.
Or so I thought. I hate to admit this. But I’m honestly pretty annoyed by the little things right now, and in the wake of everything else going on, I feel pretty ridiculous about it.
I’m annoyed that I won’t be able to get a pedicure for who knows how long. My toes are overgrown and my polish is all chipped. I pride myself in having cute feet. But it’s not like anyone would see them anyway.
I think that’s what annoys me the most.
I am annoyed that I am going to miss the Kesha concert. I bought tickets for my daughter and I, and it was going to be this super cool mother daughter fun time that I was really looking forward to. A memory for us to share.
I mean, I guess we are making memories here in the house, but it’s just not the same.
I am annoyed when it rains. I can’t get outside and breathe in the fresh air. I think this is one of the things that annoys me most of all.
Being at the mercy of rain is rough.
I am annoyed that we can’t just hop over to the convenience store for a little treat in the afternoon after school. I am annoyed that there is no after school.
I am annoyed that instead of acting in plays and finishing her freshmen year my daughter is upstairs and I am having to keep her in line with exercise and school all while I work.
I am annoyed that I am annoyed. At least I can work. I should stop. I should count my blessings. I know this.
But right now? Right now it’s hard. Right now I just want to pout a little.
Because I just do.
