Wednesday evening I started teaching over at Cleveland Community College. I have a Continuing Ed class of Intro. to Pottery. The college got all new wheels and electric kilns a couple years ago so it's really cool to get in there and teach a class. Consequently, CCC is where I took my first pottery class back in 1992.
In planning to be away for that evening I roasted a chicken that afternoon. I wanted to get that all sorted so that Sarah would have dinner when she got home from work and so I could have some before I left to teach. So I got the chicken all cooked. I make a really nice roasted chicken. It's one of our favorite meals. I broke the chicken down, taking all the meat off the bones and putting it in a container. I had to go out to the studio for something and was out of the house for about 5 minutes tops. When I walked back in the house I saw Karma standing in the kitchen with the container of chicken on the floor beside her. Not a morsel of chicken in sight. She had knocked it off the counter and eaten that whole fracking thing in a matter of minutes.
So, what could I do. Nothing. It was as much my fault for leaving it there so I just cursed a bit and ignored her until I got over it. I texted Sarah to let her know she'd be on her own for dinner.
Pottery class went great by the way and I'm looking forward to the next 9 weeks of class. I have some rank beginners, and some with experience. It's a good mix and I love to teach so I can't wait to get back in there.
So basically that catches me up. My breakdown yesterday has passed. I still want a pizza but I figure I just have to do this thing meal but meal until it's over. We are getting ready to go over and watch football with some folks from CrossFit and have a potluck. That will be fun. I missed last weeks b/c I was in Atlanta. Oh speaking of that...
I PASSED MY LEVEL 1 TEST!!!!! Yay, I have to say I was a bit nervous. The test was challenging but I knew a lot of it. I was so happy to get my email on Thursday night telling me I had passed the course and could now coach. I think I'll be getting put on the schedule over the next couple weeks at CFS. It's a whole new experience for me, but I am really excited about it.
