It’s so nice to be home!
After two weeks away, I realize how much I enjoy being in my own house. But the unpacking after we got back was an all-week process. It always seems that you come home from somewhere with more stuff than you left with!
Now that we’re all settled in and Zoie is back on California time, life is basically back to normal. This week, Cody and I had one of the network meetings for our reality show. It went great! It was a tad unconventional though, since we were running late and couldn’t get to the babysitter, Zoie came with us to the meeting!
I think she actually added some lightness to the room since those things can be sort of tense at times. She was putting on the charm and smiling at all the execs in the room, so that helped a lot! We will be having a few more meetings with different networks than we will know for sure which one we’ll be going with and when we will be shooting. Exciting!
The next day we went to an event for the March of Dimes where we are being honored this year in their “Stork Club.” They have a big fundraiser every year in September where they recognize couples who’ve had babies the past year. This was the small luncheon before that event where we got to meet the other honorees. It was very fun and again, Zoie was the hit of the party! She’s gotten out quite a lot the past few weeks.
Cody and I also made a hugely important purchase this week, which any of you new parents will understand — a new mattress!! We had the worst one ever! It had sagged so much, it was literally like sleeping in a hammock at night. We just bought a Kingsdown mattress and last night it got delivered. I slept like a baby, really!
Then my parents are spending the holiday weekend with us since they went through major withdrawals having not seen Zoie for a couple weeks. Cody and I went with my mom and his mom to the casino yesterday and had a little fun while my dad watched the baby. No big jackpots, but I had fun on that silly Monopoly slot machine.
This next week it’s time to get back out to some events, have more meetings and fit in my workout schedule somewhere. But I’m happy to report — I’m back in my size 26 jeans! Man, has it been a while since I could say that! Now if I can keep from blowing it at a Labor Day BBQ…
