The Joelle Show & Mice Killings.

I woke up this morning with such a heavy heart.

I have been dreading this day for 2 weeks now. Tonight I work alone.

I trust things will be fine, no ones going to die, but it will be different.
All through out my school years the one thing that EVERY teacher would say during parent teacher interviews to my mother is "Joelle does not work well alone"
I  would always talk too much, I get bored easily. I have (true story) on long drives to BC resorted to calling banks to make appointments just so I could talk to someone when I have had to sit silently for too long.

Maybe the talking too much will over ride the alone part of tonight.

I have really been focused on what a "Joelle Show" would look like. What do I have to offer.
I have been planning the show like a psycho for the last 4 days.

In planning shows we will often take things that are happening in our lives and start from there.

Things That are happening in my life:
-Jason has this war going on with a family of mice that have made their way into our garage and made a home in our baseball equipment.
-Maybe I can talk about how the family of geese walk back and forth to the pond every day and I like watching them.
-Or maybe we can talk about my inability to keep one frigging house plant alive...

Ooh gawd...this is going to be a mess.

In our last host meeting we were encouraged to do more social media too, so I have been thinking about trying to find a picture that represents well, what a radio show by me would embody.

Here are a few of the winners.





I am nervous as hell. I feel like I have just been told I'm pregnant.

(TO BE CLEAR, I AM NOT PREGNANT)
I just feel that scared/nervous/what the EFF is about to happen feeling.

Jason is outside mowing the lawn right now, soon he will return to his man vs beast (mice) battle. I need to go make some lunch so I can feed him before his death match and then get back to show prep.


Today:

I am grateful that school is almost over. I HATE PACKING LUNCHES and getting up early.

I am grateful for this week, and how rested and focused I feel.

I am grateful for fake plants that, if placed at a distance, look real-ish.

Oh Joelle.

I can only imagine how nervous I would be in your shoes. Change is always scarey. You can never predict how things will turn out, what your listeners will say or how they react to your new show.

But what I know is that you will ROCK this girl! YOu will do not just o.k. but "Hell Ya!" o.k Cause you have what it takes to do this. And because you love people and have this ability to be in the same space with other people and CONNECT with others, you will soar.

I am excited for you. And for all of the new and great things that are happening in your life. Take good care my friend. And breath.

Hugs,

Tracy

You're going to KILL this, Joelle! I don't normally listen during the evenings, but I'm going to turn on NOW Radio tonight so I can give you some moral support from afar. :) I'm one of your biggest fans - You are amazing!

Break a leg!
