OPRAH!

Oprah was so much fun! I never really thought about going. When Katie lived here, she asked me once why we have never gone? We are right here! I guess tickets are really hard to get (of course). My neighbor told me last week she was going. She said they were looking for an audience full of moms with crazy mom stories. She wrote in on the website, and they called her the next day to ask her to come. There is not an air date scheduled for the show yet, but they said probably within the next month, so watch for previews of "The Secret Lives of Moms". I will talk more about the show when it airs. I don't want to be the one to spoil it. I will say this... there was one small giveaway! Yay! I want to go again.

I was going to take my "Intricate" watercolor to work with me to scan. I really should be scanning my artwork rather than shooting it with a mediocre camera. But - what a busy day! I had to wake up at 5 to leave at 6 to be downtown by 7 - back home by 1pm (confession of a bad mother... at that point I had not made arrangements for someone to care for my children). I called the neighbor to catch Ellie off the bus. Went to work at 1:30. Chatted and showed off my new minoHD flip video camera - THAT OPRAH GAVE ME - to everyone at work. Got a little bit of work done. Was planning on working until 7 or 8 pm, but then remembered I had a Girl Scout meeting at 6. We met at our small town local historical society to earn the Local Lore badge. It was very nice. Now it's 9pm and I should really think about going to bed early again.

Well, I guess you finally made it to Oprah!! Can't wait to hear all about it...sounds like such an exciting time! (and how appropriate that you were invited to go to "mom" day!)

Love,

I went to Oprah with my mother-in-law last Wednesday. My daughter was in a panel of teenage girls. "Teen Sex" airs April 9th. You gotta see it! It's eye opening!

Peace ... Ish
