Day 34

I took the morning off of “Camp Mommy” and went with a friend up to a taping of a new talk show with Nate Berkus.  It was a nice mini-vacation.

Nate Berkus

I haven’t been to a talk show taping since Sally Jessey Rafael, I think that might have just dated me.  It was their first day of taping so they were still working out the kinks.  Nate seemed fine and as nice and unassuming between takes as when I’ve see him on Oprah.   The hard part for me was all the “handling” by the staff.  Don’t get me wrong everyone was very nice.  But they want a product.  We were divided into 2 waiting rooms and it didn’t take much imagination to know that the pretty people were in one and the rest of us were in the other.  Such is life, and as my husband pointed out, such is TV.  I got tired of having to ooh and Ahh and clap every time the workers in the front put up their signs.  Maybe its just me but I like a real reaction.  Sometimes watching the Oprah show I’m a little worried about the adulation the crowd gives her.  It is so worshipful, who can live up to that.  Or maybe I’m a rebel at heart and don’t like being told what to do.  That  might be more on the mark.

We couldn’t bring in cameras so I have no pictures but the show should air in mid September.

My husband held down the fort for me and Camp Mommy was still going on when I got home.  The boys got to go out to several playgrounds with their Dad.  In the afternoon we  I made the boys a Riddler question mark for a green shirt they have been wearing  as a Riddler costume.

D makes an evil Riddler!

Not to be out done, my youngest made me keep taking this picture til he thought he looked evil enough.

We did a science project about condensing water from the air.

first metal bowl full of ice

Cover the ice so it stays in and stays cold.

Put it into another bowl and wait.

Then the kids got to see the water form on the outside of the bowl.

Oh the wild science going on at our house ;).

My diet went alright today, it helped being locked into a studio most of the day.  Tomorrow it is back to the gym!
