Who wants to be on TV?

Why do so many Canadians care about poly in America? It seems like most of the reporters who write to me are from Canada. Since I don't feel like writing a lot right now I thought I would post this email I got today and maybe someone of you can help this guy? That would be nice.:

I work for Cineflix Productions, a television production company with offices in London, New York and Toronto. We are currently developing a show about polygamy in the US, and we would like to interview you and your family as part of our research. This would be for our internal use only, and would not be broadcast or used commercially in any way; at this stage we’re trying to determine who in the polygamous community might be willing to be interviewed at a later date as part of the series.

The show concept is not sensationalistic and we are taking a non-sectarian approach—we are interested in a wide range of communities, not just FLDS-affiliated families. An increasing number of Americans of all backgrounds, both secular and religious, are ‘coming out’ as polygamous and/or polyamorous, and this is what we want to document.

If this project interests you, kindly contact me by email or at either of the numbers below, and have a look at our website:

Happy Friday!

Things are going good. The last trip to the OB was all good news and she said May 22 is still looking about right for a due date but that I need to start being ready by around the end of April just in case the babies come early. The church ladies did a baby shower for me on Wednesday night and that was a lot of fun! I got so many baby towels it got to be funny! I must have like over 100 baby towels!

Steve and I had our first anniversary and he bought me a nice necklace and that was really nice but I wish I had more time with him. He is busy finishing a construction job so he is not home a lot right now and when this job is done he has another one to start on so we won't be seeing a lot of him until the winter.

Christie is way busy on doing her tax work and that is why I can't get to the computer so much. I used to be up late a lot but anymore I am just sleeping when the babies cry so Macy and Lauren took over a lot of taking care of Eric and Emily when Christie can't do it. I am sleeping a LOT right now and everyone says it is normal and okay but I feel kind of lazy.

We might be moving this summer. Steve and Christie are going to take a trip in April to go see some places and if it all works out we will try to sell this place and move there. I never lived anywhere else but California so this will be something really new to me. The reason for it is California is getting really crazy with taxes and they have some global warming law that will make Steve have to replace a LOT of construction stuff like bulldozers and graders amd trucks and it will be cheaper to just start business in another state instead of trying to stay here so it makes sense. The other thing is that we can get over 1,000 acres and a house for what we can have 20 acres and a house here. It will mean more privacy for us and that is a good thing.

I made scones for breakfast this morning and that was the first cooking I wanted to do in a while. We had whipped cream and lingonberry jam and coffee and it was really nice. It was our first day of the year to sit outside for breakfast and it was really nice. It is about 80 outside right now and it is just crazy how California goes right from winter to summer in one week! A week ago it was snowing not far from here and now it is hot out!

One of the ladies who is in the church and use to be Jewish is going to come to our house to do a Pass Over sader on Tuesday in two weeks (the 30th I think?) and it will be cool to do this. I don't know a lot about Jewish people and the way they worship so I am thinking it will be kind of fun. We got this really big plate for the sader and I want to hang it up in my room after we are adone because it is so pretty. My part is I will be making horseradish, cracker bread, and pineapple coogel for the dinner. I need to find a recipe for the coogel and if anyone has one I would love to have it!

Everyone is doing really good here and I guess that is all I can say right now.

Have a Happy Friday!

March 6, 2010

Hi, I haven't been on here in a while mostly because there are a lot of other things for me to do anymore instead of being on the computer. I had to stop going to school last month because it is just getting too hard to stand up and driving is not a lot of fun either. The school says I can come back to finish when I want to but that might not happen now because my family is talking about moving out of California.
Prices are really good right now in some other places so we can sell here and get something really great somewhere else. California has been my home all my life so this would be the first time for me to live outside of California and it might be nice so I am okay with trying it.
With me home now I am back to taking care of Emily and Eric most of the time and that is fun.
Macy and everyone else are doing fine and things are really quiet.

I'm not really in the mood to write much right now but just wanted to say what I said.

Have a nice weekend!
