Sunny and cool
I’ve already had a day and it’s barely started.
My glasses broke.
To anyone who isn’t completely dependent on their glasses, it might not seem like a big deal. But I can’t do anything without them. I have them taped for now and will race to the nearest vision center here as soon as it opens. If I can’t get them rigged so they’re secure, I can’t do the shows today, and I have not only a two-show day, but the matinee is a track I’ve only trailed, never actually done on my own before.
Why don’t I have a spare pair? Because my prescription is so intense and the lenses so expensive that I can only afford one pair.
Anyway, needless to say, no writing will get done this morning. I managed to get three loads of laundry washed, dried and put away, and see to the basic morning chores.
I was invited out to dinner between shows, but the location is too far from the theatre in which I’m working today without me spending the entire break in transit. I’d rather eat closer to the theatre and relax.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the day improves!
