My husband and I had just done some grocery shopping and had lunch. I convinced him to take the groceries home while I sat down in the Wi- Fi lounge at Whole Foods to check my e-mails, tweet and blog.
As I checked my e-mail I saw something strange, an e-mail from the Oprah Winfrey Show. (What kind of scam is this I wondered?) I read the e-mail and then called my husband, an online marketing guru, nothing gets past him! He had me forward the e-mail to him and it passed his inspection and seemed to be official. I tryed not to pee my pants and I called the number listed. (What would they want with me?)
I then proceded to pace up and down the Wi-Fi lounge chatting with one of the producers, about motherhood (and how much I can’t stand a lot of it) I have never been one to suger coat my feelings about being a mom, and I am very open about my struggles I have had with it. Our conversation ended and I thought, I am probably not the mom they are looking for but WOW that was kinda neat! I started to put together an e-mail of the information she requested and figured that would be the end of that. (I’m sure they were talking to 100 moms)
However, 20 minutes later I get another call and talked to another producer. She asked me some more questions and I felt I was answering from the heart and with real honesty. Pacing once again up and down the cafe at Whole Foods. I am sure the people around me were thinking “Sit down and shut up!” My heart is beating and I begin to sweat and I’m wondering if the air conditioning is on, because gosh it sure is warm in here.
At this point I get that tingly feeling all over and begin to think, something is happening here. I get off the phone for about 10 minutes and then I get one last call, and this call is to tell me that they have chosen me to be apart of an upcoming show! And can you be on a plane tomorrow at 10:00 am?
Let me check my calender…..Um, YES!
Airing this Wednesday, October 7th !!!!
Your Life could Change in an Instant!
(I am apart of the second half of this show, a different story about a MOM’s survival)
