Bras have been completely optional since the beginning of the pandemic.
Oh, and don't even get me started on jeans. I don't even know where mine are!
I have lowered my standards dramatically for What kind of snacks are acceptable for Baby Zand. Our home-cooked meals. How Baby Zand’s toys don’t take over the entire house (they do!!!! Even under my pillow I find random things from her.) How many hours are acceptable screen time. And how messy I show up at work c
I know calmer, slower movements are not high on our priority list for most of us. If we do manage to throw on some leggings and a supportive bra, we want to make sure we get the most of the time we are letting the kids watch TV so we can exercise.

Since I have moved to the US, I am being much less productive. And when I reflected back on my days, I realized that I was spending up to three hours in the car every day to run errands, drop Baby Zand at school, and to meet up with people. To me that is just an insane loss of productive time, when I used to run all my email correspondence out of the back of a taxi in Shanghai. It's not just the loss of productivity that really bothers me about driving around in the car, it's
