It's been since Tuesday. No power. I am having computer/blogging/tv/ light/refrigeration withdrawals. I am literally having SO many misadventures and I have no outlet. I finally picked up a pen this morning and wrote long hand....UGH.
Here it is in a nutshell:
~Tuesday went to the Astoria Pool, it reached capacity at 2178 bodies. Say no more.
~Tuesday, Nuvaring callback. Spent all this time memorizing the beautiful Maya Angelou poem, only to be met with a poem about you guessed it.
~Tuesday night lost my power...fun for about 8 hours, then reality set in.
~Wednesday, babysitter cancelled at 7 AM. No power. 2 kids. Hot. Cried. Left kids with husband and went to wrangle all day. Had fun. Came home. No power. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO...
~Thursday. Had a bad attitude. Hot. Sweating. Realized I had no power for hair dryer. Luckily I realized this in time to have my hair air-dry for the go-see. Went to go-see. Went well. Found out today I booked it- an editorial for Nick Jr. magazine, and as an added bonus, my four-year-old was booked too. And it is for October which is some of my favorite stuff to shoot.
~Thursday. Unexpected surprise, the Shop Etc. folks called me in for a fitting for a Today Show segment. It is airing Tuesday morning at 7 EST. Good news. That night I bought and played Boggle with my DH, as we had little else to entertain ourselves. We don't really own games.
~Friday. That is today. I had to move my car because I cannot get in my power-operated garage, and it was alternate side of the street parking day. I waited until the last second: 9:28 AM and it was at this exact moment the heavens opened and rain like I have literally NEVER seen before, downpoured on my head. And guess what? I had actually gotten my hair dryer to work at half power, and I was nice and dry and beautiful. Not for long. Callback for Homegoods went well anyway...it was a good story to tell. I will save that for another blog.
~Looking ahead. Tomorrow. Recording the kids voices for the album. Audition. On a Saturday? Are they crazy? Oh well. If church gets canceled because of no power, I am thinking about driving to the Hamptons and checking in to a very expensive hotel with built in electricty. Imagine.
~"They" are saying it won't be fixed until Monday. Yee-ha.
~PS. Using my friends computer to post. Thanks Z.
