t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.


"Hurry up and Wait"

So I learned a new phrase today common in the television industry: "Hurry up and wait." I was supposed to be on a plane to **** right at this very moment. But, here I am sitting at my computer instead writing a blog. As glorious as blogging is, I would much rather be on that plane.

Yesterday I spoke with the producer, and they decided they didn't have things ready enough yet to do the "big shoot." So I am postponed. Yesterday was a totally down day for me. However, I am holding out hope. They are telling me there is no reason for concern. They are constantly on a "hurry up" schedule and then a "wait" schedule.

Well at least I have more time to shed the post-baby weight since television adds 20 lbs I am informed. And btw, it is really good motivation to think you might be in front of so many people.

I am just counting my blessings...because darn it, I am so lucky!

Waiting is no fun! :( I'm disappointed for you, but I'll keep my fingures crossed, and I'm sure you'll be on that plane soon enough!
