Caffeinated Randomness - An Update and Vlog

 photo CIMG2107-1-1-1.jpg

This has been quite the few weeks for our family.  We have gone through the stomach flu and now we have head colds.  My head has been pounding for the last 3 days.  I was sure I had a sinus infection.  However, it turns out (after spending 2 1/2 hours at the medical clinic) that it isn't a sinus infection....yet. Just the start of one.  So I have to take decongestants for 4 days and if that doesn't work, then I have a prescription for antibiotics.  It took a lot of will power to buy the Advil Cold and Sinus and not walk myself up to the pharmacist and fill out that prescription.  So here's hoping the decongestants work.  

As a result of the three day headache, I have spent very little time on the computer.  Nor have I read anything.  I have been watching mindless tv.  Did you know during the day you have the choice of soap operas, cooking shows, talk shows or American Gypsy Weddings?  I now know why I don't watch daytime tv anymore.  What happened to the actual history shows on History Network or science shows on the Discovery Channel.  What do Pawn Stars and American Choppers have to do with either of these channels?

This past year we have had an amazing aide assist us in our home and at Sam's school.  She has worked with the boys and our team of therapists in working on their speech, behaviour, and mobility issues.  This last fall she got married and just before Christmas found out she was pregnant and subsequently, gave us her notice.  We are sad to lose her, but excited for her future.  Needlessly to say the last few weeks have been exhausting as we have had no assistance in the home.    I thought I had a new aide, however, she had taken another job.  Tomorrow I have 3 interviews set up.  It's quite stressful just thinking of it.  I hope that of the three it will be hard to chose one.  

A few weeks ago, many of us were challenged to vlog without any makeup by Jennifer of Finding Heaven.  I actually did vlog.  Then I ran into technical difficulties.  It appears that my web cam filmed it at super mega data, instead of normally.  I tried to upload it to YouTube and after 18 hours was told that it wasn't able to upload it.  My husband fixed everything for me yesterday - Thank you honey!  I hate watching myself.  I've tried to watch this a few times and then turn and run for the hills.  If you decide to watch this, warning it was early in the morning.  I had no make up on.  I hadn't finished my first cup of coffee.  In fact, I got the stomach flu the next day, which could explain a whole lot.  LOL.  Watch at your own risk!

What have you been up to lately?  What are you watching during the day and will you share?  Come join in with your randomness with the other Java Junkies.

I hope you guys are feeling better soon and that your interviews go well! (I'm going to watch your vlog later when the boy is napping quietly. He gets noisy exactly at the time I hit play!)

PrincessJenn said... have to make the video public if you want us to watch it. It's showing as private right now. :)

YOU are the Michelle that has a most awesome Canadian accent, is quite brave for posting first thing in the AM, and one who is HIS and I am so glad you share your story. I don't post responses often :(...but I do read!
Enjoy the weekend!

You are precious. I loved every second of this, Michelle. I love your encouragement and your braveness. The thought I'm taking with me today is this: He created us for His enjoyment. Wow. That kind of takes the pressure off!

Michelle, this was AWESOME! Well done you! So glad to be able to put a voice to the face. :) It was a great word of encouragement - we are HIS! I love it. Thanks for stepping out side of your comfort zone to deliver it.

God Bless and feel better!
