Turn Your Radio On...

Yesterday morning I had the unique opportunity to be interviewed on the radio.  One of my friends is a news anchor for the local AM radio station here in Milwaukee.  She emailed me on Tuesday asking if they could interview me on the air...umm, yes!  I was so excited!  They wanted a marriage counselor's advice on the big playoff game coming up on Sunday.  The Packers play the Bears...they are HUGE rivals, and whoever wins goes to the Super Bowl.  Now to be totally honest with you, I could care less about the Packers or the Bears, I want the Steelers to win on Sunday.  But I couldn't say that on "Packer Nation" radio!  I also find it hilarious that they wanted marriage advice on how to stay civil towards one another if one spouse cheers for the Pack and the other spouse cheers for the Bears.  Really, is this a problem?!  Apparently so!

So nonetheless I agreed to be interviewed and give my advice.  I had no clue going into this what it would be like or what they would ask me.  So I got all prepared Tuesday night and I typed everything out that I was going to say, I rehearsed it over and over again.  So when they called yesterday morning I had my notes right in front of me to use, did I?  Nope!  I totally just started rambling on and on and then when it was done I was like oh crap!  I didn't say half the stuff I wanted to!  Oh well!  Hopefully there will be a next time and I will remember to just read what I wrote! 

It was a really fun experience, and I am so glad my friend, Jodi, gave me the opportunity to do it, and hopefully someone can use the info I gave.  I didn't look real hard to find the audio of the interview, but here is a link to an article they wrote after my interview...CLICK HERE  You will have to scroll down a little bit and look for "Marriage Counselor's Advice..."

Also, if you all don't mind praying for baby Lucy...she is still having a ton of tummy troubles.  We are going to the doctor today to see if there is any relief in sight for her.  I feel so bad for her!  Thanks!

That's crazy cool about being on the radio!

Prayers for Lucy! How old is she now? Molly was about 5 weeks old when I eliminated ALL dairy from my diet. Made a HUGE difference in her tummy. I've just recently started SLOWLY adding a little bit of dairy back into my diet.

Yaaa for being on radio. I get tongue tied when I speak to people I do not know. Especially if they are doing a interview.
Proud of you!

Have a good week end!
