Yesterday was spent in a whirlwind of sorts.

Baths were taken, haircuts given, the art of makeup observed, planning, cleaning and a certain level of anxiety experienced.

All in preparation for tomorrow.

Yes, tomorrow May 15th I will have a camera crew at my house.

Our family has applied for a home reality-type show. Nothing trashy or stupid.

Just TLC and some good organization help from the good folks at Home Made Simple. If we're chosen that is.

So tomorrow will be the on camera interview. The-are-you-good-enough-and-interesting enough-to-be-on tv-interview.

I'm a tad nervous. Not about being on camera. That actually does not bother me at all.

But all the prep is killing me.

Making sure the bathrooms are clean in case someone needs to use one. Making sure the house is not super tidy but not cluttered in a Hoarders way either.

Picking out outfits for all 8 of us (I'm supposed to dress like I'm going to a nice lunch), learning how to put on enough makeup so that it will actually show up on camera since my make up usually consists of just mascara and red lipstick.

All these things have me feeling crazy. And of course I want them to choose us. But I won't be devastated if they don't. I'll just be devastated if someone picks their nose on camera or my hair looks stupid.

So yeah, I won't be sleeping much tonight. Which may be good, cuz then I'll look like the scatter brained mother of six I really am. And they'll KNOW that I need their help. Which I do. Of course.

Wish us luck!
