So I realize it's been One Year since my last blog entry. Let that sink in.
Three Covid-19 lockdowns later, personal care services are allowed to reopen in Stage 2 today in Ontario.
Not gonna lie, it's been a bit of a shit show for the past 15 months, with my studio able to be open for 7 of them. My friends in Toronto and Peel? Not so lucky, they've been shut down for the last 7 months in a row. They get to reopen today, too. Capacity limits, of course. No services that require the face mask to be removed. But we all get to breathe just a little easier today.
So friends, wherever you are, be the perfect guest when you're finally able to book your long-overdue appointment to pamper yourself. Your service provider might be the tiniest bit nervous but hopes it doesn't show. Opening day jitters might result in delays, overbooking, underbooking and maybe things not running as smoothly as you remember. Relax and know it will all work itself out by your next visit.
We want to wow you with our expertise when you come back. We also want to remind you we haven't had a paycheque in months, while many of our clients have not had to experience this kind of stress. Be kind. Be patient. Be gracious. Be understanding. But most of all, be as excited to see us as we are to see you!
