Hot, humid, sticky

Long day yesterday, but fine. Didn’t get much writing done before I left, because there was business to deal with. Had a good exchange with my PR person. Still waiting for page proofs, which concerns me.

Matinee was, um, interesting. I had my understudy on, and he had a rough show – one of those Murphy’s Law shows. But we got through it and lived through it and now it’s fine. I tossed a piece of a costume in the quick change and didn’t see where it landed, so, while the actor was on stage doing his scene, I was crawling around backstage with the bite light searching for it so I could re-set and put him back into it in the following scene. So that was my excitement for the day. I had a good dinner with a friend where we got to vent about everything that annoys us, and then back to the second show. The understudy was on a different role, which was fun. Everything was fine. There are a million little things going on backstage that wouldn’t make sense to anyone who’s not living in the day-to-day details of the place. And we laugh a lot. Which is good.

Got home around midnight; had trouble sleeping. I’m trying to pace myself for a long few days this weekend. It will be fine, it will simply be emotional and dealing with the various forms of separation, rather than just going in there, dealing with some clothing, and walking out of the building.

I need to get a lot of writing done this morning; I have to go in early to meet someone.

And, of course, the building crap is rearing its ugly head again.

Sigh.

  1. The show is keeping you hopping. I imagine they’re all like that, though, right?

    Hugs on the building stuff. That totally whomps. Why can’t they just be done already? How much longer is this supposed to go on?

    Take care.

  2. AGAIN??? Well, I suppose as long as you live there, you’ll be dealing with the Evil Trolls. Sorry it’s back on the radar–hopefully it will go away.

    And it’s good you’re laughing during work–it always makes it bearable. 🙂 Hang in there!

  3. My thoughts are with you, Devon. Keep smiling.

  4. Hugs. BIG HUGS, because it sounds like you need them.

  5. I hope you got that writing in today! It always makes me feel better when I accomplish a goal or two. 🙂
