A Doozy of a Day

Yesterday at work the dumbwaiter that carries our food from the kitchen in the lower level was on the fritz, so for the early part of our morning we had to run up and down the hill carrying drinks down for room service, and our own food up. Relief came at 8:00 when the busser our boss brought on came in to do the running. The repairman fixed it by 10:30, but then we had an unexpected lunch rush that filled our restaurant until 1:45. I was one tired girl last night.

Today is going to be a busy one. I have show laundry and repairs to return for A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. I have alterations to complete one day early, so I can drop off a rush repair and tomorrow's regular alterations at the same time. I have to go strike Gypsy costumes, which have been on hold for weeks while the theater makes dry cleaning arrangements. I have a meeting at 4pm on the Northeast side of Seattle for Les Miserables. I have to complete show laundry and mending for The Magical Mrs. Piggle Wiggle. I have another Summer Camp to put up - though it can wait until tomorrow, when I have another work day if I need it. Then, finally, after enough office work to keep me off the road until rush hour has cleared up, I should make it home around 7:00 or so.

I'm signing off now.
