There’s still a whole lot of pissing and moaning by closeted racists that Black Lives Matter protests are still happening while they suddenly pretend to give a flying fuck about whether COVID-19 while spread because of large gatherings….while some not too long ago protested and took guns to government buildings because they couldn’t get a fucking haircut. (Example 1 which involves dressing as Santa; Example 2 with a government admission that if black gun owners did that, they would have been shot; and Example 3 with the State of Michigan looking to ban guns at their state capitol…yet we know this happened all over the fucking nation.) This was never about helping those in the hair and nail and beauty industry because yall could have just purchased gift cards to do that.
So, why can state and county fairs, car shows, and parades get canceled, and yet Black Lives Matter protests can still go on?

I use a few different strategies to deal with difficulties. The strategies I use depend on the situation as well as what led up to it. My strategies may or may not work for you. The longer you work from home, the more experience and confidence you’ll gain. Then, you’ll be able to deal with difficulties in your own way.

Unfortunately, I deal with chronic migraines. Not just chronic migraines, but hemiplegic migraines. And sometimes I do manage to get a migraine without the migraine, but with several other hemiplegic symptoms. Thankfully, I’ve gotten into a routine as a work from home mom that allows me to function most days, which is, frankly, most chronic migraine sufferers wet dream since a new medication only comes out about every 20 years…and it’s usually so goddamn expensive that most people can’t afford it.

I am a work at home mom. And I have been for several years. I don’t beat around the bush. And I don’t put up with bullshit. I am told in person and online, “I wish I could be more like you.” Most people talk about how they could never do that. They can…they just make an active decision not to do that. Throughout the course of my entire life, I’ve made the active decision to not be like other people for one reason or another. And, yes, let’s call it what it is: judgment. It isn’t an “I’m better than they are” or an “I’m right and they are wrong” scenario (all of the time, anyway). It was 100% an “I don’t want that for me,” and we are all entitled to our own boundaries and desires.
Here are the 7 keys to living my best life as a work from home mom. If you choose to embrace them or only some of them or how your choose to interpret or embrace some or all of them may vary your results because you and I do not live the same life…and you should also make your own decisions and decide what is important to you, your results may vary.

And then all of a sudden, people wanted to complain about how it was “unsustainable for working parents.” It isn’t that it is somehow “unsustainable.” The truth is that some people just don’t like it and they don’t want to own up to that. As I’ve said before, working from home isn’t for everyone.

Has Workplace Anxiety Gotten to Scale?
In a single word: absolutely. A few years ago, Groupon (of all places!) commissioned a study about work stress. It found that 20% of respondents worked 10+ hours a day, 50% said workload was preventing them from work-life balance, and yet 53% said that, despite how much they were working, they still had significant financial concerns. When the amount of work is not in line with the rewards from the work, there’s usually misalignment resulting in workplace anxiety.

So, here in Oklahoma, we are told to stop gathering in large groups…and people don’t take in seriously. In fact, Herman Cain went to the Trump rally in Tulsa and caught the Rona and is being treated in an Atlanta hospital. I’d never wish the Rona on anyone. I do wish everyone would wear a mask because the Rona is some serious shit. Wear. Your. Fucking. Mask.

Since I haven’t written a WTF Friday in a while, it seems like a good time to do it. Frankly, 2020 being the giant, raging dumpster fire that it is seems like a nonstop WTF Friday…

In third grade, I had three teachers because we moved. At the second school, one teacher left so Mrs. Wright became my teacher at John Adams Elementary in Oklahoma City. Then, just like now, I tended to finish my work quickly. Mrs. Wright didn’t care if we finished early as long as we would remain quiet and not disrupt others. We could color, read, or do whatever.
