Last night I spontaneously served my family citrus-flavored fortune cookies. This was the first time my daughters had experienced them. It was fun. My fortune is found above.
This fortune helped me to calm down and de-stress after a stressful power-less week. I will literally try to bury my worries by going to the beach tomorrow after the Today Show Taping.
As for today, I recorded for a few hours in the morning since my engineer is going out of town for a few weeks. Then I got in a traffic jam on the BQE and found a new way home (thanks GPS system!) Once there, I cuddled with the little one and grabbed the big one to get to a photoshoot for Nick Jr. Magazine. We had such a fun afternoon. It was a cover-try for me with several kids, including my own. The story is about Halloween Costumes made out of pillowcases. Very Martha Stewart, but Nick Jr.-style...very cool.
My daughter was dressed as Holly Hobbie. The entire shoot she kept chanting: "Trick or treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat, if you don't, I don't care, I'll put ___________ in your underwear" Frog, bracelet, hair, a human were some of the more memorable ones that she picked. Funny. When we were all done, she asked if she could go back tomorrow. I am glad she had fun. That is the point. And it was nice for us to have some (now rare) alone time together.
After a hotdog and ice cream for dd and a jamba juice and blueberry cinnamon roll for me, we mosied on over to Madison Square Park to count dogs, and then went to my 2nd callback for Nuvaring. Luckily after 2 auditions, you get paid for subsequent auditions, otherwise I would have been less than enthused. It was the same copy and this time the director was there live, which was so much nicer than a satellite conference. I think it went well, but there were still a bunch of girls waiting to be seen after me. Oh the suspense. Still now word on Homegoods. See you on tomorrow, on TODAY.
