What do you do when you’re trying to raise necessary funds to adopt a child from China and a movie crew is looking in your neighbor’s windows to scout a location? Scramble across the street and coax them into your home instead. Naturally.
So, that’s not really how this all began. But two days into a movie being filmed at our house (all over our house!), I have to admit we’re only retaining our sanity because it’s raising money for “her”.
Let’s take two steps back. A couple of weeks ago, a movie crew was indeed peering in our neighbor’s windows scouting a scene for an independent film starring Tim Meadows (known as the Ladies Man on Saturday Night Live). Sarah was only being protective of our neighbors since they weren’t home, and went over there to check on things. Subsequently, the crew asked to view our home too. After immediately saying it was just what they were looking for (it’s the bachelor pad for Tim’s character), Sarah called me to see if I was up for adding the world’s funniest fundraiser to the mix. After hearing that they would give us more than a grand as a “location rental”, we jumped on the opportunity to add this event to the adoption timeline.
