not just another momma blog, the down & dirty of finding my groove, an ALL-access pass to becoming a mompreneur

a little re-prioritizing, laughter & venting on a SNOW DAY

Last week, I attended a webinar led by social media guru, Ann Evanston.  One of the main takeaways was — vlogging is in.  If you do not know what a vlog is – it is basically a  video blog.  A little panic set in me after hearing that vlogging was in because I really do not love making videos.  In an effort to offset making a vlog, I inserted a quick slideshow  (of my adorable dogs) in one of my blogs last week.  I knew that I had to make a vlog sooner than later, and it was on my list for today.

Except that today ended up being a SNOW DAY for my boys, and everyone was HOME!  Originally, today was supposed to just be a two hour delay for school, so when I prioritized my day, I still kept the vlog in the top 3!  Then, school was cancelled, and I thought what a great excuse of getting over the fear of vlogging than a day that has already gone hairy.  Why not have a little fun with my 2 little cameramen running around.  AND, fun was what we had.  The boys helped me with the first part of the taping, and when we lost sound on one part – I figured, run with it!  That is the theme of this day – run with it!

So, without any further introduction, I give you THE attempted SNOW DAY VLOG (unedited, run with it version).

I know that many of you, moms, are stressed today.  A number of you have touched base and shared your thoughts and stressors.  Sometimes, the best cure for chaos is to laugh and make fun of yourself like I did in my vlog AND/OR vent to a good friend.  Feel free to leave your SNOW DAY vent below!
