Breathe, Brenda....breathe!

Feeling a little overwhelmed, though I did have a good chuckle at some comments posted on fb from a few of my equally stressed out potter friends...just when I was thinking I might be alone! I hate to wallow in your misery but it's always comforting to know that I'm not the only one staying up late and rising early and eating crap...yes, that's right crap! Adriana Christianson commented on eating corn flakes for supper and instant noodles for lunch. Now I love cereal and if I could, I'd probably eat it for every meal (god knows I have!), but all those carbs make me sluggish and I need the energy right now! That being said, I had toast for lunch. I did make dinner though. Fran's Chili Chicken (I think that's what it's called) and it was soooo delish, but I eat so fast these days and as a result suffer from heartburn and truthfully, I'm not even sure I tasted most of what went into my mouth!

So, I desperately need groceries. It's literally been months since I've bought a cart full of them. Oh, we've picked up the odd thing. Eggs...we're eating a lot of them these days...and milk of course. Bread, though I'm still trying to stay off that (the toast was a bit of a carb breakdown!) and bananas. Apples and bananas, peas and carrots. Not a lot of variety in what I'm eating these days! I'm not sure I can remember what a salad tastes like (and I do love a nice spring green salad) and I'm sick to death of carrots and frozen peas (thank god I have the carrots from my garden or I'd have even less to chose from!).

This evening was a bust. I sat on the sofa, mouth hanging open and snored my way through a quick cat nap, while my poor mother watched 'A Few Good Men' and complained when I finally came to that she didn't like that movie and had seen it before. So we found another...some stupid movie, that I sat through because I was just too lazy to go downstairs to finish up the bowls I've been decorating. Because I had to, I did sneak away for an extended commercial to attach the little bw stamp to each bowl and managed to break the rim of one of them because I was rushing. I also managed to make a pan of puffed wheat squares because my poor mother has been complaining that I have nothing in the house to eat (and she's meaning anything sweet and not good for us) and so ate more crap!

Tomorrow night I'm going out for dinner. It's a sponsorship dinner with speeches but I need the break. Between clay and snow I'm feeling really housebound! I'm looking forward to shedding my dusty clothes and dressing up...running a comb through my hair, actually applying mascara! hahahahah

Okay..so lots of nonsensical babble at 12:00 am, but it somehow keeps me sane. I'd love to hear how the rest of you are doing these days, when making is taking over our lives! You can find more of us at Mud Colony!
