Lights, Camera, Action...err, Oh Crap I Forgot My Line!

It was just a typical day yesterday...get up, take a shower (yep, you heard me...I took a shower), take kids to school, cut some wood, be filmed by a production team, SAY WHAT?!

A production team came to my house and my good friend Oonagh's house (owns her own preschool) to film us being our always perfect, never boring, always well-groomed selves for a show that will focus on what life is like when you work from home and have kids running about. But not just that. We're hoping to help other women or moms who are trying to figure out how they can make money and yet have more time/flexibility with their kids (or future kids). It's tough...I know. I went from being a full-time out-of the-house, climbing-the-ladder working mom who worked long hours and her kids were in daycare from 8:30-6:00pm to a broke stay-at-home mom longing for a bit of my old,creative, money-making life, to a part-time freelancing mom with a kid on my lap while I designed marketing materials, to a full-time nanny working from home taking care of other people's kids to now a full-time work-from-home mom with a growing business. Kinda feel like I could be the only guest on Oprah's stay-at-home mom vs. working mom show where I yell back and forth at myself whilst taking sides. Now THAT would be something, huh?

Anyhow, this is something that evolved from the LA Times article and may or may not happen but I'll keep you posted. But really, who doesn't want to see a mom who never showers, wears the same clothes day in and day out, cuts wood, and polyurethane's during American Idol? I mean, really! What's that? We're cancelled already?!?! Crap...back to the garage I go.
