Back to Work!

I started back up to work last Monday, and I am TIRED!

We called this blog the Quirky Workin Moms, because that is who we are. We are both moms who work. HARD!

I work for two eye doctors as an optician. I L O V E my job so, so much. However, during this pandemic, I’ve faced many challenges.

I don’t know if you’ve been to an eye doctor recently, but the thing about my profession, is we are in your face ALL. THE. TIME!

I could not do my job, 6 feet away. It’d be impossible. From measuring your glasses, to adjusting them, or training you to put contact lenses is. I’m right there, 6 inches away.

I have found a few things to be useful though during these crazy times, and it’s nothing new. It has given me some piece of mind!

PPE has been a must. I wear a mask majority of the day. If you are in my optical, I have my mask on.

Excessively washing my hands, and using hand sanitizer. My hands are fried. I’m not sure if they will ever recover.

Coming home and putting clothes right in the laundry basket. I don’t want to bring any germs into my house where I could potentially expose my family.

Shoes are kept OUTSIDE! It’s a rule I strictly follow at this point.

It has been difficult getting used to this new “normal”, but I am so grateful to have a job that has opened back up!

I hope everyone stays healthy and safe.

And if you’re essential, THANK YOU!!!

See you all next Thursday!

  1. I know Marissa, these are difficult times. Stay strong and stay safe. We will all sail out of this together!


  2. Really not easy to manage when you work in contact with others. Good luck for you two 😉 I’m still working from home as I’m a marketing manager and our office still close until June


  3. Wow. This just highlights how much of an adjustment everyone faces now and it’ll take some time getting used to the new norm! It’s great to hear you are finding a way that means you can work. It’s not easy, but we will all pull through together ❤️


  4. I went back to work recently too. I work in a school though, since I couldn’t do my work from home they wanted me back if I was to get paid. It’s not too bad, just passing out graduation stuff to kids. Of course wearing my mask! Also I used to work in the optometry field, I was an optometric technician. So I know just how in your face and hands on opticians have to be! Especially with the measurements. I’ll be honest, I’ve been itching to get my eyes checked, but just waiting for a better time. Thank you for all that you do though!
