Tomorrow night at 9pm my family will be on Channel 3 "News at Nine." They came out and interviewed me on Friday afternoon. McCain's running mate, Sarah Palin has a son with Down syndrome so DS is getting a lot of media attention right now. I think it's great. So, last Thursday the news station called and asked if I would do an interview. I said sure. They said they wanted to do it in my home and "would today or tomorrow be better?" ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Now if you have a house ready for a camera crew to come over, I am impressed. I do not. So, I agreed to the next day and for 24 hours cleaned every corner of my first 3 rooms they would see. Now comes the funny part: The camera man and producer showed up before the anchor so they decided to shoot video of the kids playing. The kids had the playroom messed up in no time and when the anchor came in to meet the kids she sat on the playroom floor and said, "Let's just do the interview here." Again, ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! LOL So, in the mess we sit and do the interview. So, for those of you who live in AZ and watch it tomorrow please don't think I didn't clean my house because I really did!!! They were here over an hour but the story will be less than 5 minutes I'm sure. I just hope I didn't say anything dumb. I think I did OK but we'll see. When I get nervous I can't express myself very well. So, tune in if you get a chance. It will probably be online after it airs so for those out of the area I will give you the link next time. Only if it's good. =-)

Wow Shawnie. A news interview. I'm sure you did just fine. Can't wait for the link, so we can watch.

Very Nice! And I noticed the reporter ended with "Now, Shawnie told me..." so you are clearly on a first name basis! Way to go.
Next time I need publicity, I'll just have you call your buddy whats-her-name.
