Forget wearing a mask all day

How the heck am I going to wear a bra all day? I havenít worn a bra for more than 2-3 hours since March. I honestly donít think Iíll be able to wear a bra for 6+ hours.

I'm so with you. I have a bunch of stretchy, comfy bras (like a sports bra but not a lot of real support) and I've been wearing them ALL the time. In fact, I bought a couple more so I wouldn't have to do laundry or be forced to wear a real bra as often. They give enough support for a quick trip to the store, but not enough to feel appropriate for work. I visited with friends (outside, distanced) the other day and wore a real bra. I came close to ripping it off when I got in the car to come home it was so uncomfortable! I don't know how we're going to do it!

I am more worried about real pants and not leggings or yoga pants.

That and shoes are removed ASAP when I get home. I wore leggings when I was teaching.

Oh, I already know none of my pants won’t fit me. I’m choosing to hide my head in the sand on that one.

My teammate and I were just talking about this . I've always only worn PJs in my house, so I hardly ever wear real clothes anymore. I maybe throw on a t shirt and shorts or leggings to run an errand or do a zoom meeting. I've gotten in the habit of only showering every 3rd day. I'm going to have to adjust to showering every day, putting a real outfit on every day, fixing my hair every day, doing laundry on an actual regular basis and not just when I've run out of my favorite PJs?? And if we do in fact go back in person, which is what the plan supposedly is now, all of this happens before 7 AM! I'm not ready.

Yes, packing a lunch every day too! I KNOW there is going to be at least one day where I starve because I've forgotten how life works and didn't grab my lunch from the fridge before leaving. And my district has also said no outside food/ordering in, including for staff, so there's no running to get something or ordering online either. I better keep a non perishable snack in my desk!

Oh, Haley, I don't know if I will survive if that becomes a rule in my district. I end up running to grab lunch at least once or twice a week.

And I have no idea how I'm going to manage being up and ready to face the world in real clothes wearing make up and having my hair done before noon.

Miss Trace, I could have written that. Iíve gotten into the habit of getting up at 6:30, feeding and letting Aik out and then we go back to bed until 10:30-12:00. I donít know how Iím going to get up at 6:30 and stay up.

And the thought of cooking again? I canít even...

I donít know about anyone else, but if we are forced to go back in person, I will be wearing so much ppe that no one will even be able to see my hair or face. Teachers in my district wear jeans everyday so that will not be a problem either.

I'd have been going through this anyway, coming off maternity leave, so I'm glad I won't be the only one!

Shoes are going to be the hard one for me. When I do actually wear them, it's been flip flops or sneakers. I'm not quite sure how I'm going to wear dress shoes all day. And wearing a non-nursing bra is going to be uncomfortable too.

I'm having the same problem. It will be a challenge to get used to bras and masks once we go back.

I need a couple more bras like the one I exercise in. I should order those today. We are going remote the first month (at least) so I feel like if I go in to work, there isn't any need to dress in anything other than workout clothes. I might even ride my bike.

I have spent quite a bit of time with hiking boots or tennis shoes which are more than the sandals I usually wear 90% of the time to school-even in the winter.

I wore my bra yesterday on a drive-you know, just in case I got in an accident and someone had to see me.

It is still the getting up that is going to be my downfall. Well, getting up AND out of the house.
