Oh my goodness Janey, you freaked me out a little with this headline because a reporter from The Leader is coming over this morning to interview me for a story on "Making Do" and my sclerobrain thought for a moment - "What?! how does Janey know before she even gets here?!" Ha-Ha-Ha! :emoticon-dont-know:

 

Will share that too when it comes out in print. I'm NERVOUS! :(


Take care,

Barefut

Hi Barefut,

 

I hope this reaches you in time for your interview. Remember, if you are nervous and you add a smile to it, it makes you EXCITED! Be very excited for your interview, just remember to smile. Besides, you have to smile for the photos anyway, don't you?

 

:emoticon-congratulations: :you-rock:

 

This is good advice for me to give to you, of course. If it were me, I'd probably just go straight into heart attack mode. :blink:


Warm Hugs,

Turned out she called me before she came and we hashed most of it out over the phone.

 

This all came about after I sent an article to the paper titled "Money Saving Tips you Already Know But Don't Want to Hear" mostly about downsizing, recycling, shopping secondhand, giving up bad habits and not being afraid of the change.

 

When they received my article they wanted to turn it into an interview of me instead because the story on their other person fell through. Basically I was good timing and was saving them a lot of work. Rather than just print my article as is, they decided to keep their series "Making Do" consistent with their other pieces, in the form of an interview.

 

Truthfully, I have to say I was not entirely happy with the way it turned out. But, oh well - I'm moving on...


Take care,

Barefut
