The day or so after I get back from a vacation, especially one jam packed with activities like this past one I am always burnt out. Couple that with Eva waking up at 4:30am and insisting on sleeping with us, me oversleeping and missing my workout and barely making it to work on time, well, it makes for a tough day back. It makes it tougher when I get back and see that the project I was really looking forward to doing gets put on hold. Yeesh!
Today wasn’t all bad, in fact things started turning around pretty quickly. I had a great conversation with Kim Ann Curtin, my friend, life coach and client. She helped me get myself a bit focused for the day and the tasks ahead for today. That helped and I have some action plans to work on.
I was also contacted by a reporter from NPR to answer some questions about the latest rules put forth by the FTC regarding Sponsored Posts and compensation for blogging among other things. So I did a phone interview with Laura Sydell and ended up having a couple of my quotes plus an excerpt from a video I made a while back being used in the piece which is audio but also transcribed. There was one quote that was supposed to be about sponsored tweets and how there hasn’t been a fully agreed upon practice for disclosing sponsored tweets however we are trying to disclose as much as possible in the best ways possible. The transcribed article used a screen shot of this blog so that was pretty cool.
Today I also ordered Eva’s birthday cake. She turns two on Saturday but we are having a little pizza party on Thursday to celebrate. It should be fun, I hope to catch up a bit before then.
Oh and the photo is of me burning dinner. I was trying to do too much at once and well dinner got a little crispy. And that is not because I am some inept Dad who cannot cook, I can, I just do it faster and so once in a while… Extra Crispy!
