Sometimes, short weeks are the longest. After three blissful days away from work last weekend, I should have been refreshed and ready to take on the world on Tuesday morning. But instead, I was exhausted. The situation did not improve as the work week began. By Wednesday, technically only the second day of this work week, I felt like I had been on the job for eons. The chocolate bar I normally reserve as a treat to myself on Thursday afternoon for surviving four work days in a row? I inhaled it on Wednesday morning.
We all have bad weeks. It’s normal. And we all have weeks that don’t go the way we want, even if we acknowledge that nothing has technically gone wrong, either. I can admit that, about this week. There were no disasters and no major meltdowns, no more failures of communication or conflicts than usual. But despite that, it’s been a long slog. Most evenings, I haven’t had the energy to do much more than sit in front of Netflix and wait until it seems like a reasonable time for an adult to go to sleep. Sometimes, life really isn’t glamorous, and I get that.
When weeks like this happen, because they do happen now and then, I want everything in my life that isn’t work to feel effortless. And that starts with my clothes. I admit that a jumpsuit has certain drawbacks, particularly when it comes to using the bathroom, but you can’t beat them for comfort and ease. I have a few in my wardrobe, but the Missy Empire Kimana jumpsuit became a fast favourite when it arrived. The culotte cut makes it perfect for end of summer days when it’s still warm enough for bare legs. But it’s also easy to throw a jacket or sweater over in the evening.
Personally, I am counting the seconds to the end of the day today. And I’ll probably be wearing this jumpsuit while I do it. Happy Friday!
