March 6 Update

The heat kicked in around 3 AM, which is a good thing, since, with the wind chill, it is -19 this morning.

Yesterday was all about dealing with insurance, getting the car towed, getting the loaner, etc. I was just too tired to do much online — although I managed to send out two pitches (although I doubt I’ll be hired — I played hardball with the $$ upfront).

I kept the apartment warm yesterday by cooking and experimenting with recipes for The Project yesterday, and I have a cake in the oven this morning.

Hopefully, there’s enough hot water left so I can shower here instead of at the theatre. We’ll see.

It snowed yesterday and is supposed to snow tomorrow. Are we ever going to catch a break?

I’m exhausted, physically and emotionally, and heading into the theatre for another 14 hour day. I’ve also managed to pull something in my lower back, so work will be a challenge.

I’ll write in more detail in a few days, when I feel up to it, and post the photos.

Off to the show.

  1. I love those air-activated heat wrap thingys. I think they’re called ThermaCare. The lower back ones generate heat for 8 hours, and they work like a dream, imo. I hope your back feels better. In trying times like these, you need your health, for sure!

    Hope you stay warm!

  2. I am glad things are going “okay.”
    Keep us posted!

    I’ve been thinking ’bout ya!

  3. *hugs* I hope things get back to some semblance of normalcy soon.

  4. I’m glad you were able to take care of necessary things. Wishing you luck that your pitch is accepted.
    The ThermaCare wrap works great.

  5. Aw, I’m so sorry things are so stressful right now. I am sending lots of good will and wishes to you in my thoughts. I hope you feel better soon.

  6. Devon,

    I’m sorry to hear about flooding and such. Especially in the *$%^ winter time. I grew up in Michigan and I know all about freakin’ wind chill factors.

    Having your life interrupted by Nature can take a lot out of you. If you for no good reason feel exhausted once everything has passed, it’s to be expected.

    I’m a survivor of the Northridge earthquake and well, it’s hard on your psyche for a long time.

    Take it easy on yourself. Give yourself permission to indulge in chocolate anything.


  7. It sounds as though you’re on the verge of some kind of depression. Look after yourself and take time out when you can.

  8. I’m not surprised you’re exhausted with all that’s been going on. Hope you can keep warm. Make sure you get plenty of rest and take good care of yourself.
    Thinking of you.

  9. hope you’re doing well. thinking of you. R

  10. Those photos give only an impression of what you and your neighbors are going through. The reality is ten times worse. Still sending warm thoughts your way.

  11. Glad you’re okay – but sorry about all the stress! Hope things settle soon.
