I'll bring my New Earth Work over here because, I guess this is where it's meant to be. Welcome to Jippyjabber! PS I am auntjippy on the Oprah message boards.

I am so happy to have Final Cut Pro! I can't wait to get all of the raw footage loaded. I am just dying to get the documentary up and running. I am worried about some things being too graphic. I ran into a director friend of mine at Starbucks and he told me not to censor myself. YIkES! I just want to have a balance showing the good the bad and the ugly. Also, I have some interviews left to film and I planned on doing them infront of the green screen so I can add some special effects in the back ground and stay away from the talking heads on screen that bores the hell out of me. I looking for a good book on greenscreen. I know the lighting is key. I don't want the doctors to glow green.
My Nanny Blew me off today. She called twice earlier, didn't leave a message. I have called her and text message her and so far no reply. The problem with this is that I schedule to do things today thinking that i have help. Actually the problem is that I put off doing something thinking I would be able to do it today. When it's just me, I know I have to do it all and I act differently. I don't expect to be able to do anything on my own. I just integrate Zach's life into my mine. It is always challenging but it's rewarding to be getting somewhere. Nanny just called me , the housekeeper didn't do her laundry and she doesn't have anything to wear so she isn't coming. LOL

Your nanny has a housekeeper? Dude, LA. ;)

I know it sounds insane but it's not. It takes a village to raise a child and in LA the villagers get paid. Everyone in my family works. My nanny lives at home, ( hence the house keeper) goes to college, and has two jobs. She puts up with lots of seriously stressfull stuff from my special needs child and I therefore put up with stuff from her. I occassionally borrow my sister's housekeeper and she is paid well. She enjoys a nice life providing for her kids and extended family. That is the way to end poverty is to pay people well.
