Last night I overcooked some pasta for about a half hour and managed to eat it! Maybe I can get off this all-yogurt diet soon!

It’s almost 1pm and I’m still at work. This dental work isn’t gonna stop me! (The Vicodin helps. Really.) It’s also Friday, the last Friday before my shop goes back on contract for next season.

My mother had hip replacement surgery this morning. By the time my alarm went off at 6:30am, she was already in the recovery room (thanks to the three hour time difference).

In one week, the costume shop goes back on contract for the season. I’m simultaneously glad (people in the shop again!) and sad (goodbye easy, low-key summer hours). Back to work. I’m more glad than anything. Date: July 27, 2015 Crane: 733 Days Spent on Project: 888 Location: NW Portland, OR Person I would have … Continue reading

Getting a late start today since I met some friends for an early brunch this morning. We talked about boys the entire time. We’re all in our mid-30s, with a range of opinions and experiences. Things never seem to change. I realize we were an incredibly obvious Sex and The City cliche. Date: July 26, … Continue reading

I feel like the character Bobby in the final moments of the musical COMPANY, thinking and repeating “I’m ready” over and over and over again.

Tragedy today. I left my wallet at home and I really want to get a cup of coffee. Groan. Date: July 23, 2015 Crane: 729 Days Spent on Project: 884 Location: NW Portland, OR Person I would have sent it to: TBD Music I listened to while sewing: At the suggestion of a reader, I … Continue reading
