Video! Finally! I Hope!

But first...thanks to all of you who expressed concern for my lack of sleep. It actually has nothing at all to do with Princess - she is a great sleeper - goes to bed by 9 and sleeps till 8:30. Its all me. I have never been a good sleeper - I am a night owl so I always get a nice burst of energy right at about 10 pm when I should be winding down and getting ready for bed. And I go in spurts - sometimes I seem to get over it and can sleep fine, but then I will go for days/weeks (like now) and just not be able to sleep. So, this too shall pass, let's just hope its soon.
-------------------
And also...a hopefully fun game coming tomorrow...I just wanted to try to get this dang video posted first! Come back tomorrow to participate. It'll be easy on you, scary for me.
-------------------
So I have been trying FOREVAH to get video posted on this here blog. It is so not as easy as I thought, especially if you don't want to pay a penny to do it. BIG thanks to Ben Padilla who is my total hero for helping me figure this out. I still have a ways to go till I feel comfortable with it, but he walked me through it step by step and I am grateful. If you get a chance, go check out his blog - its one of my daily stops and it kicks serious ass. In any case, I can't post the concert video because its too long (and I have not figured out how to edit yet), but I do have a little video to show you what we go through nearly 24 hours a day at our house.

The backstory: On Monday night, football (that's American football, for you soccer fans) started. Yes, it was just preseason, but without hockey this year, its been a loooong time between sports I actually want to watch on tv. And Hub was just about jumping out of his skin with excitement at the prospect of watching football again. He's singing "Are you ready for some football!?!?!" to Princess, and she did not respond as he had hoped.

Now go play the video!

I hope you can open the movie...it may take a minute to load. And you may need Quicktime to view it, I am not completely sure. But if you do, its free and easy to download here. But just in case you can't view it (which would not surprise me), look how big my little angel is getting!!!

She's soooooooo adorable!

Video is great.

I miss hockey. Not a huge football fan, but I'm almost to the point of watching that I'm so starved for decent sports. Don't even discuss the Cubs with me this year.

Football? It's 95 degrees outside... I can't watch football yet. I wish they'd push the season back a few months.... football is best on a cold grey day...

She's too cute!

Patsy Darling said...

She still prefers Dora to sports? You got some work to do woman.

Indigo said...

LOL! I guess y'all watched Monday Night Dora then, hey? ;-)

FWIW, Hubby and Zoe watch football together on Sundays. He's got her all into it, and she cheers for '#4', which is Brett Favre, for those who aren't familiar with our Green Bay Packers. She's been known to cheer for #4 at the baseball game, during Survivor, tennis, golf, whatever .... if you are rooting for someone, she gets in there and says "GO NUMBER 4!!!!"

mercuryfern said...

Hello, michele sent me. (Do I need to say that when I'm doing the new fangled thing?) The video does look very nice. Btw, I was born in Patterson. Do I get any points for that?

Bev - Living In Hormoney said...

I'm with Princess on this one! I'd rather watch Dora than football too! Now hockey, that's another story entirely!

Cute kid. My girlfriend's daughter goes into convulsions if she misses a Fairly Oddparents episode she saw 9,000 times.

I checked out Ben's blog. That's gotta be the coolest-looking blog I've seen.
