Zoikes, I don't remember! Good question!

What has been your biggest challenge in terms of juggling your career and motherhood?

Not having enough time. I'd like to spend more time doing Mommy things, and more time writing and researching. There just aren't enough hours in the day.

What do your kids think of what you do?

My 2-year-old is too young to understand. My older daughter (age 8) is beginning to see what I do. She likes to create "documents," loves to type, likes to write stories. So she's very intrigued with the process. However, she recently informed me that she wants to be an actress; writing is just her hobby.

Has The Happiness Project changed the way you live your life?

Absolutely. In so many ways. And for the better.

What do you do when you're feeling overwhelmed or uninspired?

My refuge is always reading. If I feel sad or overwhelmed, I often read children's literature. I never tire of the great children's classics. If I'm feeling uninspired right now, I often turn to a non-fiction book related to happiness. I have a huge stack waiting for me, and I find the subject inexhaustibly fascinating.
