It’s been a long time since I sang for y’all. Yesterday I rewrote the lyrics to a hit song, adapting it for bloggers and had my son Jude record me singing it. You know, just for fun. JUST IN CASE YOU’D FORGOTTEN I’M A CERTIFIED GOOFBALL. Also, I like embarrassing my older kids who are just MORTIFIED that Mom is so weird. Mwah-ha-ha. So, without further ado, I present for your viewing pleasure: “Blogger Royals.”
Here are some thoughts on the futility of “helping” people who are still heavily invested in their harmful belief systems or who believe they are on a mission from God Himself.
Kristen Howerton and I had such a great time discussing politics that we decided to team up again and discuss another topic we care deeply about: religion! Our plan is to do a weekly recap about religious topics we’ve read on the Internet. Our first episode? Last week’s brouhaha surrounding Mark Driscoll’s disrespectful tweet about President Obama. Also, we’d love your feedback. If you’ve read something you’d like us to discuss, please share.
Here is our 3rd episode where Kristen and I discuss Obamacare. What are your thoughts? Do you think Obamacare will effectively reform our healthcare system? Also, if you’d like us to discuss a particular issue, leave a comment!
Just to show you how strict I am, I made this video without makeup. Also, bedhead. Because even though I’m an annoying morning person, I don’t like doing my hair and makeup unless absolutely necessary. But gabbing about the 8 million ideas that pop into my brain the moment I wake up? Now, THAT’S an absolute necessity!
As we approach another election season, I’m half-tempted to stay off the Internet entirely. My whole social network is morphing into a state of near-constant debate (and I’m including myself, here!). So much arguing! And what good does it accomplish? After receiving my no-cancer diagnosis a couple weeks ago, I’ve been re-thinking how I use the Internet. I wanted to share my thoughts in a video because it’s important to remember we’re all real people with real faces, real voices and real feelings.
A new APA study shows moms with jobs are happier and healthier than moms who stay home with their kids during infancy and preschool years. Yeah, I have a few things to say about that.
Somehow, this year’s family Christmas card kept getting postponed on the to-do list. I was too busy sitting around in my Distraught Pants making Christmas snow villages in fishbowls. I know, I know. PRIORITIES! Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.
Anyway, yesterday I tried to share one of our favorite holiday traditions with you: reading aloud and telling stories in funny, character voices. So the kids gathered ’round and we made this video to demonstrate the blessed, quiet, ORDERLY perfection (ba ha ha) of our family story-time. Aaaaaand it turned out like this.
p.s. won’t you wish our family Merry Christmas and/or Happy Holidays from where you are? We always like reading the greetings of readers far and near! Leave your name and state/country in the comment box!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, peeps!
