Houston … we had a problem

So … throw the cumulated stress of holidays, work, another DARN SANE meeting (people STILL suck!!*), and spousal unit discord together … and you get an overweight, middle-aged, crusty ER nurse & mother that crashes … HARD!  I just slept for the last 18 hours STRAIGHT … AMAZING!  While I’m still overweight, middle-aged and probably crusty … I feel like a new person!  And the spousal unit apologized – so all is good in [my] world … for now.  Smile

I’ve had an amazingly non-productive week – at least in the studio.  I do have a blank cookin’ in the production kiln, as I type.  I also have some 2 dozen bottles de-labeled and sanitized, so I can do another bottle slump anytime.  (I have an interesting idea I want to try, involving laser printers and slumped bottles … we’ll see.)  But I’ve not gotten to my big blank coffin slump … 

We did refinance our house this week … that was a painful process, but a good one.  We are now locked into a 15 yr mortgage (half the length of our old one) that’s almost 2 percentage points cheaper, and doesn’t raise the monthly payment … so it had to be done.  I also finished reading a 750+ page novel (the source of the marital discord, as I can get deeply absorbed in a good book) … so alive, refreshed and back from my 18 hour coma … I’m ready to get started.  free_sleeping_Beauty

Time to get busy …

About claytonhill

Artisan of beautiful and functional art, handmade in our glass studio. All items one of a kind due to the nature of our medium. A little about me: As the mother of four children, multiple four-legged 'children', wife and an ER nurse ... I've always found pleasure in pursuing creative outlets. My current 'hobby' is kiln-formed glass. As I never do anything 'half-way' ... my husband and I are really enjoying this medium. Other hobbies have included/include stained glass, quilting, knitting, wine making, candles - oh, and a brief trial of the ancient Ukranian art of etching designs on blown eggs ... don't ask. :) You can view my on-line glass store at www.chneos.etsy.com
