As I sit here watching the clock run down on the vintage Wahoo board game I'm hoping to spend entirely too much money for on e-bay, the most amazing e-mail came through to me. It is from a lady named Joni B. Cole. It seems Joni has a series of books she has published called 'This Day in the Life: Diaries of Women Across America'. I've looked at her website, and plan to purchase these books, as they truly seem fantastic! It is real-life diaries of a random group of women all written on the same day. Fascinating!
By now you are wondering, why would Joni be e-mailing little old me? Well, Joni has asked me to be one of the women to write a diary in her next book, 'This Day in the Life of Working Women'. While I am 'pick-my-jaw-up-off-the-floor' flattered, there are hundreds of women being asked, and only 30 will be chosen. Still, pretty exciting huh?
Today is January 11th, only 11 days into the new year. Yet, I can tell this is going to be one interesting year! New Year's day, I received a phone call I had waited a year to get. I have been selected for one of the lead roles in the US version of "Raggs" TV series which is a new hit show in Australia on Network 7. I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to be a part of something so truly terrific. I just know in my heart it will be a huge hit with kids and parents too!
In addition, I received a call from a producer friend of mine this week. After a successful run of commercials last year, KBhomes has asked me to voice/produce another set for this year! Followed by a dramatic death scene in a couple of weeks on the new anime I've been recording in Texas, this is shaping up to be a great January!

Wow. I write really slow.
I guess this all brings me back to the same conclusion, doing a job you love may not always be profitable or always exciting...but it is always wonderful to wake up in the morning, isn't it?
One day this March, I will record everything I do in a single day. Will I sit and stare at a computer screen, hoping for employment? Will I be in a recording studio voicing one of the greatest television characters of all time? I'm not sure. My only wish is: I hope I'm as happy on that day as I am in this very moment. I hope my family is healthy, and my dog has finally stopped using the kitchen floor as a bathroom. I hope I have something wise to say.
I just bought myself a Wahoo board for WAY too much money!!!!
What a great day!
