Hi, Gene? Bye, Gene!

This staying home thing has really wreaked havoc with my hygiene habits.
Things like…
Fixing my hair
Applying make-up
Deciding what to wear

Luckily, I got a haircut right before we went to Vegas, so I’m good for another six months or so. And, as we all know, I don’t have to worry about my roots growing out, since I’m ALL roots.

By the amount of memes posted on the subject, I know it can’t just be me who forgets to bathe daily. Or forgets the last time I bathed. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not gross or stinky (well, maybe a little gross or stinky), but I am giving that not washing your hair every day theory a run for its money.

I really only pay attention to my hygiene when I’m leaving the house. (Imagine that meme, lol–showering to go to Wal Mart!) But since I so rarely go out, why bother?

I actually showered, styled, and make-upped for my first ever Zoom the other day! Not that they cared, lol, but I found I neeeeded a reason to be presentable. It’s really easy to fall into the habit of bye, gene.

How have your habits changed under quarantine? Do you bother to shower? Color your hair? Wear pants?

Are you looking forward to having to get dressed sometime…eventually? Or is this your new normal?

Share your hygiene thoughts in the comments.
But first, enjoy these memes!



About Mary Fran Says

I am an artist, crafter, designer and writer. I enjoy working with mixed media-- applying visual and tactile manipulations to telling a story. Not a lot of market for that, though, :), so I'm focusing on short story submissions and novel completions. Yes, plural. Lots of beginnings, too many ideas, not enough focus.

    My dogs get excited when I shower and change clothes! They think we’re going somewhere!
    Truth be told, I’ve been struggling with this since I started working from home. Going outside, consisted of going to the mailbox. I’m not sure that really counts. I do, however, have days of the week down pat…not always so good with the date, but I’m usually close by a couple of days. I haven’t set foot in a grocery store in at least 4 weeks and as a result, saved a ton of money! My daughter picks up grocery’s for me, since I’ve been designated as the …. um…the limited exposure one. I hope you and your family are all well! Hugs!
