Diary from Jane - Wednesday March 18th:
So, this may seem weird but as we go through this time together – instead of emailing less, I have decided to write more. Communicating can bring people together in a time that is isolating and scary. I was feeling like so many things were just happening to ‘me’…and I know that’s just not true. So here we go, a start to a diary on this dangerous time and a chance to connect.
My last 36 hours:
I got a notice that one of our factories in NYC is closed. They are an important supplier and cast many of our products! I mean. I was shell shocked. I had a panic attack (for real) and it felt like everything was white and I couldn’t move. We have other factories so I will manage this but it’s a blow. All I care about is the safety of – everyone – so it’s all understood it just adds a challenge to already challenged business reality.
My sweet wonderful daughter got an email that they would not go back to school, they would not have graduation. She is a senior in high school. Not in front of her…but I started crying. I’m just so sad they are missing out on so much. It’s so hard to help the kids navigate this.
I was up 3am to 5am-ish. Anyone having the worst time sleeping?
I pulled out of my garage and ripped my side mirror off. I mean whyyyyyyyyy??
OK some good stuff. Our new office brings me so much joy. I am not sure I can AFFORD IT ANYMORE lol, but I can work here and have a bit of an escape from reality. We put up the most gorgeous wallpaper! Here’s a pic. The space is becoming so so Jane Winchester and fun and cool and what I always dreamt.
