Update

Yesterday morning I glazed and loaded the kiln. I peeked in today and those three big vases look great. I'll try to get a photo of them up in the next day or so. I was kind of in a fog all day yesterday so I am thankful for today. I've said before...I love Wednesday at my home.
TUESDAYS EVENTS
Of course I taught Monday night and than got home at 10:30 and worked a bit more in my studio. On Tuesday morning I had to do the car-pool thing, up and back to Gastonia - an hour out of the day than get the girls to school, glaze like a mad women before they get out at 12:00, get them home , feed them and spen ometime with them reading and such then clean up the bomb that went off in the house the night before. Usually Joey gets home at 5:30 and we have dinner but yesterday I had to get all the kids dressed up and ready for a coral concert at Quaids school. So..everyone gets baths, cloths get pulled out and pressed (even my husbands) I throw some dinner together and listen to the "Yucks and I don't like this" for 20 minutes while I try to get dressed. We finally race out the door at 5:30 for the concert. I did manage to see Quiad sing, which was great but as always there is always one little girl who does not want to sit still so I spent the majority of the time out in the lobby entertaining McKenna. By 8, of course all the kids where worn out and pretty much whined the whole way home. ( Mental note, put in school suggestion box do concerts for lower school children on a Saturday in the afternoon!) We got home at 8:30, got everyone settled down and I was back out working at 9 until 11:30 finishing up stuff for my next kiln load. Today the girls and I are taking it easy. We went to the park with a friend of mine and her child and did some grocery shopping. I'm looking forward to seeing Joey at 5:30 for some dinner and then I'll be unloading and loading a bisque for tonight. Tomorrow is my last glaze kiln for the show on Saturday.
Boy.....that was some update!

That bomb you mention. I know the one it goes off in my house on Tuesday and Thursday nights when I go out to my studio to teach classes and leave my husband with our three boys.
Just popped in for lunch but if I am quick I can get another couple of hours of work done before they all get home from school.

Its so nice to hear that someone else has to deal with a bomb also. I can only imagine what 3 boys could do to a house in a few hours. Good luck with that! Jen
