Today’s Agenda: Well, it’s already over! edition

Normally if I haven’t gotten around to writing this by the afternoon I just don’t write it. And laying out today’s agenda after 11pm certainly seems silly. But I’ve been trying to post it all day, writing little bits here and there on the go and then having to change it as I progressed through my day. So I’m posting it, dammit!

I started my day biking to an appointment with Microsoft, about 7.5 miles. Then 7.5 more back. At the end my legs were like jelly and I needed Advil just to sit on a conference call. But the Microsoft meeting was fantastic! My fellow Blogging Angels and I got to preview Avatar Kinect, and while I’m not really allowed to talk specifics yet, I thought it was a lot of fun and can’t wait to use it at home. You’ll be hearing more from me on this.

Then, from 5:30-6pm I got to guest on “Whatever, with Jennifer” on Martha Stewart’s SiriusXM channel. I’m used to doing that kind of thing with my Blogging Angels podcasts, but I think this might have been my first time doing something like that live. It was a ton of fun. We talked about my blog, putting yourself first, helicopter parents, and a bunch of other stuff. Jennifer is a hoot. Check out her blog.  I hope to return to the show.

Of course, it didn’t occur to me to get a picture of myself at my mic, but just imagine my face on this picture of Jennifer, add eighty or so pounds, give her old shoes and totally uncool clothes, and you’ve pretty much got it. Smile

That’s it for me. I’m exhausted. I will sleep well tonight.

    I listen to ‘Whatever’ on the way home from work and I heard you yesterday and immediately liked you and your style of parenting. I have a 16 year old daughter ( who is a real diva at times) and my only regret parenting (oh, I probably have more regrets but can’t think this early in the morning) was that I was not selfish enough and resented my husband a lot during her childhood because I felt I was doing everything (which I did-the asshole). The only reason I didn’t hire a full time nanny to help me out was because I felt I could be supermom and do everything, instead I was a stupid, tired, frustrated mom most of the time.
    I look forward to following your blog and learning how to be a good selfish Mom.

      @Ev: I’m so glad you were listening! And yeah, your story is so familiar. I see it all around me. I don’t know why we do this to ourselves! Hopefully you’re putting yourself first now.
