I can’t believe that it’s already May, which means that we are one month away from reaching the halfway mark of 2020, and I have no idea what to think if this year yet. At this point in time, I can say that I have gotten comfortable enough with my daily routines that I can be flexible with it at times. However, I think that with a new month and the upcoming lifting of the Enhanced Community Quarantine on May 15 and shifting to a General Community Quarantine, there is also a certain feeling of uncertainty in the air.
The last couple of weeks have definitely taken a toll on me, both emotionally and physically. That, combined with other not so great unexpected surprises that kept on throwing me off caused me to have mini meltdowns for around three or four days straight, which was not fun at all. Thankfully, I was able to have therapy this week, and I came out of it with more realistic goals, and a better mindset to tackle everything that will be thrown my way in the next couple of weeks. Aside from that, actually getting a lot of sleep and sleeping in a bit of Sunday helped a lot.
To be honest, that was one of the most tiring weeks I’ve had. Aside from the fact that so much has been going on, my family is now two weeks in without a household staff and with us (mostly us five children), really doing chores. We, especially me, are still adjusting, which has undeniably led to moments of frustration especially when my expectations don’t match up to reality. (In all honestly, even though the chores are divided, it’s really hard work to maintain a house that’s three stories high.)
