This past week has been something of an emotional roller coaster.
I don’t like roller coasters.
They scare the poops out of me.
I don’t like not being in control.
I like to know what’s coming.
I like being organized.
I like weeks with minimal negative surprises and maximal calm, cool, and collected Amy.
This week was not that week.
This week has consisted of altogether too many mini-crises, too many mega-crises, too many nights crying myself to sleep, too many naps taken for the wrong reasons, too much time spent in the fetal position, and way too many carbs.
But now the crises have been un-crisised, my body has finally un-curled itself, and the fall leaves are freakin’ beautiful.
So let’s make some fall comfort food. BUT! Not so many carbs, okay?
Let’s make some one-crust pot pies.
(ps, is this cute? the whole putting words on pictures thing? I feel like every other blogger in the world is doing this…)
