Pandemic 2020-21 ~ March

One-Year Anniversary

On March 10, 2020 I was sitting in the waiting room of Airport Auto, working on a Sudoku puzzle. People around me were coughing and sneezing. 🙁😲🙄

The White House briefings had just begun to alert us to the corona virus that was spreading from country to country. WHO (World Health Organization) declared COVID-19 a Pandemic on March 11, 2020 and the world temporarily closed. Food deliveries and tele-health calls became the new way of getting needs met. Healthcare professionals became our examples of thinking and acting under the rapidly increasing hospitalizations and dealing with a totally unknown and highly contagious killer.

Looking back over this year I can see the resilience that brought so many of us through. We’ve faced the possibility of becoming infected with this virus and met that possibility with common sense and resolve. Now that I’m fully vaccinated I’m still using that common sense and resolve to proceed carefully as I go about my day. I’m taking the attitude of pacing myself when it comes to rushing out and getting back to ‘normal’. That goes for shopping, hair cuts, travel etc.

And, of course, this happened!!

The year has brought many changes into my life. Changes that also include my hair! I had a great hair stylist before the pandemic began and she did a great job with the cut and the lowlights. When COVID-19 entered our lives, I made the decision to let my hair grow. Over the year my hairstyle took many twists and turns!! I’ve found out that most of my hair is still a reddish-brown except for the top bangs which are white/grey (depending on the light). My hairstylist was beautifully covering up the white/grey with a low-lite. Now that the lowlights have grown all out of my hair, I’m faced with the question of whether to return for a new style and lowlights again. Or to just let it grow! Growing old gracefully hasn’t been easy while navigating a pandemic!!

  1. I’m growing my hair out too. I have fine hair. So I can do more styles with it long than short. You look great! It’s easier not to fight aging, but just kind of go with the flow during it.

    • It’s much longer now! Almost half-way down my back! I still like it growing long. I remember my grandmother with long grey hair. She wore it up in a bun. I wear mine pulled back with a tie or up in a twist.

      • Oh my gosh! My grandmother did too!! I like to braid my fine hair at night to poof it it up. My hair is down a little past my shoulders. When it’s hot, I braid or clamp back the sides or French braid it. I love the versatility of long hair.
