I got nothin’

P1010028_2
Last week, I think I could have blogged twice a day, but this week, despite being quite "busy"  it seems there’s not much to say or share. Funny how that is.
I’ve been working my little heart out on ‘my affair‘ and preparing for a meeting with the treasurer and  board president of the farmer’s market. So, I think that blog project will finally come together, too. They want a detailed price breakdown, which I’m horrible at doing. First of all, I have no idea what things cost, what my time is worth and I always get a little twinge of guilt asking for money even if I’m offering my ‘services’. But from their perspective they need to be sure they can afford this and need to prepare a budget for a new blog project.
The pottery ‘workshop’ program is also open again after a long holiday break. The first order of business for me is a slew of test tiles that allow me to see what all the different glazes will look like on my new claybodies.
Yet during the girls’ naptime, when I usually slide out my board and chunks of clay, I find that I’ve actually just slid between the sheets with my book and slowly begun an "examination of the inside of my eyelids". (to quote my mother.) Perhaps, I’m coming face to face with my third trimester. Or perhaps my husband and I need to stop staying up late to watch this(on my computer–still no TV) after the girls go to bed, or engaging in heated games of backgammon?

  1. ah, third trimester…

    we got a portable DVD player for Christmas, so now I can sit on the couch to watch movies rather than at the desk- we have no tv as well. it’s not huge, but the couch is so much more comfortable!

  2. We’ve spent many a night in front of the little laptop watching DVDs! Give in to the sleep; your body is working hard with that little one and you don’t have as much time at first for sleep, as you know, after the big arrival! Your other site is looking really, really good. I like the changes you’ve made since I last looked… Good work!

  3. Sleep is good. Get it now, cuz once that baby is outta there, you’re not getting much. 😉 I listended to a lot of Jazz with Bob Parlocha on the radio during those sleepless nights.

  4. I have not heard of this monarch of the glen. Oh my, I think I’ll have to investigate.

    Your affair over there is looking good! And I agree that putting a value to your own time and work is such a hard thing to do. I’d say think of a number that you think is fair and then add at least 20%. no guilt. You’re doing them the favor. 🙂
