But last Thursday, when it all started, I was scheduled to go on the Bob Miller Show on KPAM to discuss some small yet positive signs in the economy. Unfortunately I got stuck at home with a sick kid and so I called to cancel, but they wanted to do it with me anyway from my home. Well, I tried, and for a few minutes it worked, but then my sick child came looking for me... The result was terribly embarrassing (I am sorry Bob!) and the entire time I was very distracted so I can't imagine I was very coherent. But you know, life is what it is and sometimes we have to roll with the punches. It is what being a parent is all about.
