Even ‘good things’ could be better

So the deets on the Martha Stewart show.

Biz stone: founder of twitter: martha asks him: why does Twitter not have spell check: do you feel rich: Biz stone says, technology is a natural part of nature. i kinda think she was flirting with him. Also, she was totally name dropping.

Chris Hughes: Facebook founder: martha asks him about him and his ‘little friends”. ha: kid looks like he is 15: he’s actually 25.

David Pogue: NYTimes: very funny: very cool and witty: he was my fav. Had the most to say. gone are the days of email. it’s all about direct and urgent messaging.

Disco music blasting between guest segments, YES!!!  I loves it.

Here are all the things that were not very TECHy for a TECH show.

*It’s a TECH show right? You asked everyone to bring their computers, blackberries right? You asked us to log on and Tweet and Crackbook right? So did not realize we would do JUST that. So be prepared and don’t let your wifi cramp! yea, so that happened. We were asked to stop tweeting and FBing.

*You would think that for a TECH show we would get some funky gadget to try out right? wrong! we got books. Two books about twitter.ugh. Come on Omnimedia! get with the program OPRAH would NEVER had let this happen. It’s a TECH show.

*We should have at the VERY least received a goody bag with MARTHA CRAFT goodies. Some glitter for the masses. Gimme the glitter Martha!

* I would have: talked about the new phones out there and how they can really help wih all the faboshness of our society, or maybe I would had a Tweet off.Yea that’s a contest to see who can tweet fastest. have an online contest and watch your audience go into a frenzy trying to answer questions online while being in the audience for you show. Show off the techyness of those in the room. I looked around, there were all kinds of people with all kinds of fun gadgets. Ah well. Maybe if I were on the creative team we would have rocked it.

I’d still like to be Martha for a week.

It’s a good thing

I’m off to the Marth Stewart Show today!  I will be in the Martha Stewart Show Audience.

The episode we are filming tomorrow is the Martha Stewart Tech Show.

I am so excited about the techy goodies. I am such a techy but don’t look like one. You would never know my tech savyness. So the possibilities of what could be the tech goody are making me soo excited. Is it a Flip, could it be the new Verizon notebook, what about a new iphone? i’ll fill you in. I’ll be blogging, tweeting and FBing live from the show! so keep it here!

Funny thing, I have NEVER seen her Daytime TV show. But i love the mags, Living, Food, and Body and Soul. I check her website every single day! no joke. I read her blog, and check the craft section and organizing tip of the day.

Since being a momsicle, I have this overwhelming need to domesticate myself and what better way than MARTHA. (I am saying this with an apron on and high heels with perfectly coiffed hair and smirk on my face)

I want to be her for a day…no no no, a week. I want to soak in some of that Marthaness.

Unslumpify yo’self, girl.

Unslumpify yo'self, girl.

I had a bad day today. I woke up feeling crappy and my crappy-ness just flooded my whole day.

I skipped out on all the fun saturday Fall Festivals. I went to the craft store to maybe be inspired to ‘create’, but then I caught a glimpse of my slumpy self in the mirror and that made me feel worse.

I mean, here I am, in my early early 30’s, no wrinkles, body in decent shape and I walk around like a homeless person! I should be taking advantage of my youth ya know!

So I came straight home in hopes to unslumpify myself…but my crappy mood got the better of me and I slumped in front of the TV for a bit. Then I said, “AW hellz no” and went to the book store to read up on unslumpifying myself. Not one book was available. The self-help section did not help me at all.

So I figured, I’ll read about non-profit management, this only made me feel stresssed that I had much to do to manage my dance company and instead here I am reading about it.

So I came back home and got to work. I listened to music, I ate, I did some jumping jacks, nothing worked.

I washed my face and took a look at myself.

I looked so bad, so sad and so dumpy. I just wanted to shout out… Unslumpify  yo’self  girl!!!

aw hell! I just need silence.

I have gained a gross amount of weight lately. In the last month I have noticed a HUGE difference in my entire body mass. My clothes don’t fit, my thighs rub and my knees hurt.

So i decided to think about why.

here are the reasons:

I used to dance ( professional dancer…not the pole type, the concert dance type) 5 times a week for many hours. Last year my hub abd I adopted Lily, she is 4 and I dropped my full time dancing to …well no dancing.

I eat at home all the time. so I eat a lot more than I used to.

I stress and stay up all night.

I drink soda and red bull and coffee all day, to keep up with Lily’s energy!

I don’t exercise.

Now I don’t weigh myself and have never been on fad diets, but It is time y’all. I gotsa get my body back!

I started a “get back in bangin shape” plan last week. So far I have skipped 5 running days, but the eating part has been better.

Better Me Better Family. let’s get it!

Sorry about the mess

Some of my friends came over today…

I feel like I should say…

Some of Lily the boss- of-me’s friends came over today…

but I felt like these mom types are MY friends just as much as their kiddies are Lily’s friends.

SO, again…some of my friends came over today and it was great. We played, the kids played and it was a great time for everyone! As each friend, with tiny people attached, came to the house, I greeted them with an exhuberant…”so sorry the house is a mess”.

The truth is, my house was NOT a mess…for my standards or for others standards. So why the need t apologize for your “lived in” look.

I live here people, i pick up at the end of the day, start the day clean and fresh and by 2pm…it’s been lived in.

My friends and their little people did not mind the occasional sword in the path way or baby doll slepping in a corner.

The new “hospitality”.

During Christmas, we have a “decorating party”. Our friends come over, we make a great meal and drink and then get the ladders out and get the lights up and all that.

Making people feel like they are part of the family IS the new hospitality!

So …sorry about the mess on this blog, i’m working on it.

Better Me, Better Year, Better Family

Better Me!!!!

Ok, so if anyone has ever rebelled against the whole wife, mother,stay at home thing…it”s me.

So of course guess what…I am all of the above! (there is one more title that fits me that I can’t out myself about) (so if you know, keep it under wraps ya heard.)

Anyway, I am getting used to this new life. Although at times I fail miserably, I find myself somewhat relaxing into these roles and understanding and appreciating these roles.

Being a mother, wife and stay-at-home parent(sort of) is the most important role ever, people. I feel that I am constantly setting the tone for our lives…really.  All you MOM types know this already. But my recent personal discovery of this fact has brought a new light to my life. I feel that I have this “thing” handed down to me that enables me to BETTER my family.

Think about it.

I can say…we need to excersise more…and poof… we’re all biking and hiking and running…it happens.

I said, we need to go to farmers markets and support local…poof happened.

I said, recycle, let’s find lots of fun ways to recycle, reduce and reuse…what do you know..happens.

These things are happening in my family becouse of my commitment to BETTER us and Matt and Lily follow. Granted most of this was sort of happening anyway, but now it’s a way of life.

SO this week I am going to be prepared. Lily starts school tomorrow. Preschool.

But i am going to be prepared for every day the night before.

Again…I know you have already been doing this for years. But it’s a new thing for me. I prepare for big things like, trips, shows in downtown manhattan, tours, dinner parties. I have not got the hang of preparing for daily things.

Us mom types set the tone for our families. Think back, who was the boss of you when you were growing up…MOM.

So now here I am. I am the MOM. wow!!!

So I am committing to a better me. for a better us.

…and we’re off

School starts for Lily next Monday and I am hoping to start the year with a smooth takeoff. I want to set the clothes for the school out the night before, plan my meals weekly, lunch ready the night before, laundry where it needs to be, fridge stocked..etc

Lily is in her last year of preschool she will be attending 5 days a week. This will give me some much much needed time to get my blog on…among other things.

To start the year off right, I turned to my trusty planner, my big red book full of dates and things and papers sticking out. Well sadly I was totally uninspired, so I decided to make my own daily notepad, calendar. Check it out.
