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.

SMC is going on the ******* ***** Show...Go Wild Sweet Peas!

What an unbelievable phone call yesterday! My little sweet pea company could be going wild and crazy with growth. ******* called (from ****) and they want me to come on their show. (All this from a humble little email I sent 4 days ago.) But the amazing part is not just that I get to go on the show, but I get to...... One ****** is basically what I get. And they say Yes, or No. Yikes!

Their crew is coming this Friday. Spending the day with me to film me in my element. I hope they like playing at the park, coloring with markers, watching Dora, and an occasional run in between me and my computer. Maybe I should tell them to come from 8pm to 6am, when the real work is happening. After they shoot out here, they fly me to *****. My first time in the *******. I am soooooo exctied. On May 29-30 I will film for the show.... Then the spot will air in the beginning of June. Soooo fast!!!

It has been a wild 12 hours. As with any television show the producers need a story. So my homework was to explain to them in a nutshell what it would mean to me if I had the biggest bumper crop of sweet peas in history.

If you are starting a company and haven't thought about this I suggest you do. A little soul searching never hurts anyone. I have always known since I got this idea at Thanksgiving it was important to me. I have felt so driven by it...known I wanted it to succeed. But why? Well that is what I have been articulating the last 7 hours. Sometimes getting out what's on the inside is a lot harder than we think.

I think I have it figured out, but I better not give away any punch lines from the show....I will tell you this much...

Remember how passionate about my minivan I am...I would love to upgrade to leather seats and 3 power doors, a true mother's dream!

This is my chance, the big break....the huge piece of luck I needed...
