I have been trying unsuccessfully to upload a video for the last two hours. I feel as if I am back in college watching the first hints of dawn breaking through the ridge outside my window, my pulse racing and my neck throbbing as I realized my class would begin in a mere three hours and I had at least 4 hours left to write to get the sucker done.

It’s NaBloPoMo and I’m no quitter. Must post! I also like to think that I am above posting a ridiculous post for the sake of posting.

The viedo, well, it had all the elements of what makes my life what it is:

Chaos in the form of a ratchety, noise maker/musical instrument in the background

Sean egging on one of our daughters and looking adorable irresistible doing it

Danger with Avery leaping from the couch to the “island” also called an ottoman

And me laughing.

You see my life is kind of like a free outdoor concert attended with your closest circle of friends and that guy you have a crush on, at any moment I am having several needs met by Sean, my girls and the things we do.

I wanted to share that. I don’t know if I’ll make it by midnight, but I think it’s important to share these things, to demonstrate that life is fun and nutty and that if you take the time to listen and watch and experience, you’ve got it all right there in front of you.
