How long does it take …

to shoot a 30-second television commercial?

Well, it took three hours for my part.

I'm not yet ready offer details. I'll fill you in after it airs.

Suffice it to say it was absolutely one of the most nerve-wracking and anxiety-producing things I've ever done.

But. It's done. And I'm glad I did it.

So exciting! I would never have guessed that.

Back in the day, my husband was a commercial producer. To him all aspects of it were fascinating; I always found it INTOLERABLY tedious!

I hope it's going to be on Youtube so we can all see it :-)

I was in a commercial for my (former/old) gym. No speaking, I was actually working out/in a class. It will be interesting to see how you look to yourself. I was sort of fascinated to see the size/shape of my body and also to see myself moving.

There was an awful lot of standing around, that's for sure. And I'm having a hard time watching commercials now, knowing what goes on behind the scenes! And the different language and rules ... I found it fascinating indeed.

I saw some unedited stuff and wasn't horrified. I think that's the best I can hope for. =)

Update on the water: the circuit breaker tripped, either due to a power surge when the electricity came back on last night OR when lightning struck in the area. My neighbor's electric fence control box got hit in the same area. He was able to reset the circuit breaker for us and we have WATER! I think I'll go do a load of laundry. Heh.

And the winner is …

Kitten with a Whiplash, who left two comments and it was the second (which had nothing to do with the contest) which won the prize. Congratulations, and since the Kitten was the only commenter who expressed any interest in actually winning it, I'm so glad the Universe took care of it. Heh.

What a weekend! But first, how was yours? I hope you did some fun stuff and got some necessary stuff done, as well. It's all about balance.

Saturday was our fun day (but we had to drive, drive, drive to get there and then drive, drive, drive home again, all in one day, boy was I tired). We went to my husband's granddaughter's first birthday party. In addition to a sweet little doll, suitable for ages 0+ (meaning it has no parts that will come loose, and do you know how difficult it is to find dolls for babies when you live in the Middle of Nowhere?), I made her this:

I haven't sewn anything in a month of Sundays, so was a little apprehensive about finishing it on time, but this p…


Well. Well, well, well. Should this morning's scale number be divided between two weeks, or did all of it happen this past week? It's an easy number to divide, and I've been consistent for two weeks, so it should probably be split, doncha think?

That means I lost three pounds for each of the last two weeks. SIX pounds total. Excuse me, I mean
SIX!!!!!! I'm going to do everything I can to stay on track while I'm gone this week. There's little more I can promise. I'm really motivated to keep it up. The dumbbells are packed (and my luggage weighs a ton!), I'm taking a thermos of water in the car and I know where are the rest stops are between here and Nashville. I think I'll walk a bit at each of them, then walk again when I arrive at my destination. Hope to get a total of 80 minutes done by the end of the day. SIX!!!!!!
