When I told you I had a few new gigs at CafeMom and would be a little bit busier, I HAD NO IDEA.
Working as CafeMom’s new election correspondent has made me frantic enough, but what’s kept me from writing here at all over the last couple of weeks was my Style Dare video series for CafeMom Studios, which is now officially called “I’ll Take That Dare,” and which I just spent the last three days shooting. And when I say “days,” I’m talking 14 hours EACH day of total, nonstop public embarrassment.
In the past three days, I have:
Those are just a FEW of the things I’ve done — and we’ve still got another day of shooting to go later this week!
I will say that there were many, many moments over the last three days when I stopped and thought, Lindsay Ferrier, you have hit rock bottom. And then I reminded myself that this whole series was MY IDEA. I can at least say that I went big with this one. I just hope it was worth it!
At any rate, I can now add “created and starred in my own reality series” to my Reverse Bucket List. And that’s gotta count for something, right?
Once we’re done shooting the series, things will calm down for me somewhat, although I’m now preparing for another big trip to Iowa right after Christmas for Moms Matter. (On that note, check out this article one of my journalism heroes, Leslie Bennetts wrote for Newsweek.com, after we talked on the phone last week. I would never say this anywhere else but here: SQUEE.) I promise, though, that I’ll be checking in more often. I have SOOOOOO many stories to tell you.
Thanks for hanging in there, and I hope you’re having a marvelous holiday season!
