An Exciting Day

This morning, I received a phone call from a reporter at WGRZ Channel 2 News. Matt Pearl explained that he was interested in interviewing Laura, and he was eager to know what today’s “good deed” was going to be. This posed a bit of a problem for me……..since I had no idea what she had on her agenda for today. And so, for the first time since December 1st, I found myself having to put a bit of pressure on her, since we now had a reporter, complete with a camera, showing up at my house within the space of a few hours.

“Can I use a Coinstar machine?” Laura asked when she hopped in the car, and we headed toward home. I’ve been waiting on this request actually. It is a common known fact that Laura loves playing with the Coinstar machine almost as much as she loves blogging. And so, today’s idea was born.

We need to thank Mr. Pearl for the time he took interviewing Laura today. As a personal aside, I must tell you that this is a man who is true to his word. He promised that he wouldn’t shoot footage of my floors, which haven’t been washed in two weeks and are currently covered in the remnants of this weekend’s adventures in baking. And I notice that not a single floor board made it onto tonight’s news. Thank you!!!!!

Laura did hit up her Coinstar machine tonight, and she did donate her money to the bellringer who is probably still manning her post at the Tops on Delaware and Sheridan. If she had her way, she would be blogging about all of this until midnight, but because her dad and I are very very mean, we made her go to bed at a reasonable hour tonight.

I promised I would post her pictures of this evening’s good work….including a special photo for Hallie and CJ! Your package is on its way!

 Thank you, every single one of you, for your generous spirit and your incredible encouragement. I know that there is now one child in this world who will always be eager to do for others, due in large measure to the rewards that she has received in response to her tiny acts of kindness. It has been a very special season in our home. We can’t thank you enough.

How I Made a Difference on December 17,2007

Today I made a difference by searching for coins in my house and car. Later, I will go to a Coinstar machine and put them in there to get dollar bills back. I am going to give all of this money to the Salvation Army!  I will write more about this later! Right now, Matt Pearl from Channel 2 News is IN MY HOUSE!! He is interviewing me for tonight’s news at 5:00 or 5:30pm. He is asking me lots of questions that are different from what I was asked by the Bee or by WBEN. This is fun!!! Some of these questions are hard to answer though!!

——-

I am hoping that you are writing on your blogs, about the questions from the meme. Remember you are allowed to  tag others.  You don’t have to be tagged to answer them! I think that it would be cool if we could get this meme to go really far!!!! I hope that the chosen people are tagging other people to get this to go really far.
