True Life Documentary
-Me On MTV- Update

Quick Update: The MTV producer called today. The True Life Documentary, "I'm Ending My Marriage" will air tomorrow, August 31th at 9:00 P.M. CST. I'm their Featured Therapist. Warning: I have not seen the tape, so I don't know what angle MTV will come from. I have Direct TV, so that would be channel 331 for me. I've already hit the Record button... I'm so excited! I hope you will tune in.

MTV & Me Update

In my first MTV & Me post (read here), I told you I would keep you updated. During the shooting of the True Life Documentary, the camera crew explained that they had no way of knowing, at that time, if the documentary would make the cut to go on air. I was told it would all depend on the couple and how their story progressed. Well, the producer called today to ask me how I wanted my credits to read. Oh, okay, I thought to myself. I said, "Does this mean it's a go?" She said, "Yes, it's going to air. But, I'll have to get back to you with the exact date and time." I told her she could list me as Couples Counselor: Robbie S. Redmon, LPC as apposed to my business name Coach Abby, Inc. Counseling Services. I would have loved to list both, but she said there wasn't enough room, so I had to choose. As soon as I get the air date and I time, I'll post it here for you in yet, another update.

Isn't Life Something?

I'm struggling with what to title this post. This was suppose to be a carefree Saturday. I only had one client on the books this morning. She's one I truly look forward to meeting with each week. And the rest of the day I had planned to get my Isis Locs tightened. To me that's relaxing, with a lot of girl talk and catching up kind of stuff. Well, my client leaves and I do a few admin type functions while I decide what I'm going to stop and pick up to eat during my hair appointment. Every thing is going along as scheduled. I lock my office door, feeling carefree and wondering where the time has gone. I have 10 minutes to get to my appointment, which is about 15 minutes away. I pull my phone out to call Isis as I sit down in my car and buckle myself in. I'm pulling off as I get her on the phone, "Isis I'm running a...What's That!? The wheel is shaking! "Oh, no! Isis, I'm on flat!" That's all I could say. I'm sitting in a parking lot with no other cars, on flat. I get off the phone with Isis, agreeing that we will reschedule. I can hear the concern in her voice. I call Chris. Boy was I relieved to hear his voice, and not voicemail! He's on his way. So, guess where I am, now? I'm back upstairs in my office talking to you (venting). Thank you so much for your listening ear. Now, what about you? Do you have anything to get off your chest? I'm all ears. I'm just returning the favor. Isn't life something? I think that's my title.

Our Butterfly

Spending time with our grandbabies is special! This was an evening at Chili's. Kennedy decided to try the bread basket on for size. Well, I thought it fit perfectly. Chris told her to lean it to the right a little more. That's when she looked at him as if to say, "I got this, Papa Red."
To which he replied, "Well,..well, okay then..."
