im used to some snarky comments being left for me on my blog. usually i post them and laugh them off. but today im addressing two from the same person (ann) on the same day (today) from the same ip address.
i feel it best to do it here. on my blog. as part of my blog.
that’s it. i’ve had it. 1 hour shows and still no time to blog. no job, still no blog time. kids in school, still no blog time. house cleaner hired, still no blog time. Garder, check, still no blog time.
The days must be nothing but ‘me time’ to work on cellulite instead of sharpening your brain at least.
hey ann, lucky day for you that i am pms and happy to respond.
you may think i have hours to while away doing things like hiring a house cleaner and wearing a garder (you mean garter?!) but
here’s a breakdown of today which is similar in schedule to many days…though many days there are additional tasks like the grocery store, doctors or dentists appointments, project supplies errands (like yesterday when i had to drive around for a couple of hours gathering things immediately after i had gotten home), and driving kids to after school activities every day but friday…
i social network plenty throughout the days as well. all part of my job.
6:00am on the treadmill to work on my heart, my legs, my ass (i do the treadmill on an incline), and my brain- because regular physical exercise has been shown to help brain function as well as other parts of the body. sadly ann, NOTHING will help cellulite.
7:00am wake my kids.
7:10am leave the house to get a few things kids needed for school and while i was at it i picked up a dunkin donuts coffee for ME.
7:30am back home with stuff for kids now placed in my husband’s car because although most days i take them to school, today he took them because i had to leave for work extra early.
7:30am with my kids before they go to school. offer them breakfast which they did not eat. brush my 11 year olds hair (because she lets me!) and roll her sleeves for her (she’s very hip!)
7:45am shower and get ready to get to work by 10 because of pretape.
8:30am in car to drive to nyc for 10am pretape for a show.
9:50am arrive for pretape. pee. talk to coworkers. sit in communal lobby area because i do not yet have a usable office with a usable computer at a reasonable time. will have that by end of next week.
10:00am talk to coworker about a specific issue. talk to another coworker’s wife.
10:20am pretape happens and is terrrific.
11:20am with covino and rich in studio watching and listening to mark cuban. was cool. so cool.
12:00pm probably went to pee again and then wound up back in communal lobby area where i ate the food i had brought from home (some chicken, some spinach and some gluten free pasta (not sure why i am having gluten free but it was yummy)).
12:15pm talk to other coworkers about other business and prep today’s radio show with radio sean ryan.
1:00pm go on the air.
2:00pm go off the air.
2:05pm run out of the building to get my car so i could drive to school to pick up my kids.
2:15pm make two business calls (hands free) on the way to school.
3:30pm get to school.
4:00pm get home with kids.
4:55pm undressed and just sat down to blog.
haven’t figured out dinner yet.
one of my two kids is now with a friend. and the other is with me.
my husband is not yet home from work.
maybe my daughter and i will go out for a manicure.
maybe i will relax/rot in my bed with her.
this day (every day) may seem like it is one hour of work to YOU but to me… well, i feel busy. and blogging happens when it can. for instance, i make videos while exercising or cooking or hanging because it is, in a way, multitasking. that is a blog.
re my brain activities… i do read ann. sometimes smut (fun!) sometimes more challenging material. oh and i play words with friends whenever i can. i love that game and it makes me think.
re my house cleaner… thankfully i do have one. i am a working mother. have been for 7 years… and that is extremely helpful to have. but dont think for a minute that i can just devote my life to me… yeesh. ive got bills to pay, papers to get through. kids to raise, a husband to love. and yes a blog to maintain. and frankly, i am ok with how i am doing all of it.
your choice to be here or not.
