My Very Hectic Life



OK, you all know my life is hectic. It’s not a normal life; Gavin keeps reminding me that on my planet things are different.


Last week on Jodi’s planet:


I hosted a Friendship Circle event for moms with special needs children.


I ran a Metroimma Mommy Meet Up (www.metroimma.com).


I attended an amazing and inspiring special needs conference.


I had a minor surgical procedure.


I answered over 2,000 emails in seven days, according to Xobni my inbox program.


I hosted eight people to sleep over for Shabbat, and fed 80 guests for the meals. Our guests finally departed after Havdallah….but no rest for the wicked. I had my BIG TO DO LIST for this week.


Here is a sneak preview into the life of Jodi:


Jodi the Mom: Homework, housework, play dates, Caily’s CPSE evaluation, therapist schedules, school visits and, of course, bedtime cuddles.


Jodi the Wife: Gav and I go out every night, to JICNY events, classes, the theatre, and surprise parties. I make it my businesses to know what is going on and we live it up in the city. Once a week, we have date night, just the two of us.


Jodi the special needs advocate: My job is to make Caily’s world a better place and I am always building her fan base on www.facebook.com/cailysworld. We are launching a new site torahvaluesforeveryone.org, and planning more community forums to keep educating, maintaining dialogue and engaging the media.


Jodi the founder of JICNY: 10,000 people attended events last year, 1,000 people enjoy Shabbat in my home each year, we organize 200 events a year and I am at almost all of them.


Jodi the President of MetroImma: My dream was to combine my passion for networking and event planning with my online marketing experience. It’s a successful site that’s continuously growing and, yes, introduces more events in my life.


Jodi the forever entrepreneur : We are launching Jdeal.com – a site for seriously surprising deals everyday on stuff that Jews love. The Groupon for the Jewish market. Who pays retail anyway? Hopefully, no-one in Jodi’s world once we launch! So lookout for our November debut and don’t miss out on a real deal.
