So I figured I should update about the email from the talk show and, you know, other stuff.
I called the producer and he told me that they were doing a show about different parenting styles but that another staffer had taken over that specific project and he had given her my info. Supposedly she was going to call me but I've yet to hear the phone ring and have someone from the show on the other end.
(funny side story..as I typed "I've yet to hear the phone ring"...the phone actually rang. How bizarre would that have been if it was the show on the other end? It wasn't.)
I have a feeling that I wasn't "fanatical" enough in my parenting style to warrant the call back. That's okay. It was still interesting just to get a contact email from them. So I was Denied. ;)
Things have been busy here. I've been trying to get Christmas all "wrapped up" as it were. I did get out and get most of the shopping done but I know that I'll be going out on Christmas eve to finish things up. Tomorrow morning our church is doing a Breakfast with Santa which I'm in charge of. I have to be there at 6:45 to help get things cooking. It goes until 10:30.
Tuesday was George and McKenna's chance to perform at the local mall with the school choir. I got the times mixed up and totally missed the performance. McKenna was in tears when we arrived because she was so angry/sad that we had missed it.
(I'd just like to take the time now to tell any future psychiatrist "You're Welcome" as this event will probably line your pocket someday.)
Thankfully they had a show at the school later on that day so we were able to make it to that one. We sat smack dab on the front row. Maybe that will alleviate the time needed on the couch.
Thursday night was Jillian's 1st grade sing and Jona's Christmas band concert. They were an hour apart. And they both did great.
I've been working on cutting up my dad's old Levi's in order to make pillows out of them for my mom to give to the grandkids for Christmas. I have all but one pair cut up. I need to make 37 throw pillows total. That and I got it in my head that I wanted to make Cake Balls to take around for neighbor gifts this year. To facilitate this I have an 11 pound block of white dipping chocolate sitting on my counter. 11 pounds.
I don't know if I will accomplish everything but I'm going to give it a shot.
The Christmas Spirit has been slow in coming to me this year. I'm finally not changing the radio station when a Christmas song comes on. Hopefully the Spirit will be in full swing by next Friday. I hope it's in full swing at your house.
