I know it’s been forever and A LOT has happened since the last time I really wrote just to express myself.
In a nut shell, my father lost his battle with cancer in Summer of 2019, I enrolled full time at school that fall(5 classes), switched jobs (completely different company, completely different industry), packed up all our stuff and moved which was our second time moving in 2019(our family bought a building)and another one of my bonus babies moved in with us so my family dynamic changed.
I was EXTREMELY busy juggling school, my new job, getting my new place together and most importantly grieving. I kept myself so busy that the little time that I did have to myself was spent analyzing and understanding my own emotions. Needless to say my creative content fell by the wayside. I’ve tried vlogging and ‘occasionally’ posting some creative content but unfortunately I have not been consistently posting much of anything.
Which brings me to this new series ‘Morning Tea with T’. This series will give you access to some of my inner most feelings and thoughts after my morning reflection. I can’t promise I’ll post everyday but I do plan on posting Monday Wednesday and Friday. Let’s jump into today’s thoughts.
COVID-19: What a time to be alive…. UGH.. I don’t even know where to begin. Now that the state of Illinois is currently at the ‘shelter in place’ stage, I’ve been staying my butt at home(with the exception of food runs). Earlier last week I was so disappointed and ANNOYED that some of my FB friends were still out an about partying and ‘clubbing’. This week however, I’m slightly frustrated due to the opposite end of the spectrum. Our elderly don’t want to listen either! My grandmother(Belize)isn’t taking me seriously when I tell her to stock up and stay in the house, and I have another elderly relative who is STILL getting (remodeling)work done on their house, is interviewing for senior care and STILL has their cleaning lady coming every week. I was really irritated by the young folks being out but now I am STRESSED by my own relatives not listening. I just keep praying that the governor locks EVERYTHING down so they really have no choice.
Woooosah… needed to let that out… so how are y’all feeling, what’s your morning tea?
