What a busy weekend! David and I, along with some friends, flew to Vegas and back last night for a charity event to help raise money and awareness for the Sea Shepherd Organization. It was an ambitious trip for 8 hrs, but it felt good to be part of such an important cause.
Rain attempted to have her first sleep-over at David’s mom’s house yesterday. By 9:00 it was a full-blown break down. I suppose you never know when they’re ready until you try. Poor baby. Since that, she has been stuck to me like glue!
I’m a bit stressed out because I have a lot to accomplish this week. I will be doing a special episode for the morning medical talk show, The Doctors. I am so excited and will be discussing lots of different mommy issues. The crew is coming to my house at 6:30am to shoot the morning chaos of getting my kids ready and out the door for school by 7:45. Definitely not our most glamorous time of day, but it guarantees to be a real moment! I am sure it’s not much different than most homes at that time.
Then we will head out to the ModernMom offices to see what a typical work day is like for me and stop by a few other surprise locations that you will have to tune in to find out. I’m shooting the episode on October 15th. There is still room in the audience if any of you would like to come and watch the show live. Visit http://thedoctorstv.com/main/order_tickets_form for ticket info. I’d love to meet you there. I will let you know the airdate when I have it.
On top of that, I have been putting together the pieces for a book for some time now. My writing partner will be flying in for the week to spend some intimate time with my family and me. This is a project that is very dear to my heart. I am excited and also nervous to let everyone take such an up close and personal look inside my life. I feel like there is so much to share, I already do that on a daily basis here, but I want to open up much more and a book is the perfect avenue to get much deeper.
We are launching a bigger, better ModernMom this week. The new look and feel has been in construction for the past 6 months. I would love to hear your thoughts and also learn about what kind of information you want more of.
I met a magician at Saturday night’s event. He was brilliant. We all complimented his skills and he said, “It’s too bad that I don’t enjoy it anymore…” I thought to myself how sad that was. Then I started thinking about how overwhelmed I get at times with my life and career, but I absolutely love what I do. Don’t get me wrong, I would like to check out and disappear to Italy with David and a few great books, but I know that’s not in my cards anymore. I actually passionately love my life. Thank God, because that is what drives me.
