Vlogemotions: Sadness and Pride

This video carnival, aptly named Vlogemotions (get it? Video + blog + emotions = Vlogemotions) focuses on one specific emotion per week and is brought to you by Fort Thompson.

Here is my emotional contribution(s) for the week:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

UPDATE TO CLARIFY: I feel it’s necessary to expound on something I said in the video because there will be a few people in my life that will question my meaning. I said something along the lines of “this is the first time the boys have really had to deal with death,” or some such nonsense, and that’s not entirely true.

What I meant to say is that this is the first time they have understood what death really is and mature enough to process grief. They’ve had family members die, but they were too young to really know what was going on.

Thursday Thirteen

Thursday Thirteen – The Secret’s Out #2

Some of my favorite Post Secrets. I’m posting these because they resonate with me on some level. What’s your favorite secret?

1.
out-of-debt

Get out of debt- it solves so many problems.

2.
eulogy

What would YOURS say?

3.
run-away

Who hasn’t?

4.
free-at-last

But then that day comes and we wish for our old life back.

5.
neighborhood

And that, my friends, is something my boys will never say about my mothering skills. If anything, I’ve prepared them a little TOO much.

6.
ignorant

I’m mellowing in my old age. Now, instead of getting annoyed, I get amused … and a little sad, quite frankly.

7.
silent-cry

This one breaks my heart … for a variety of reasons.

8.
not-as-great

If you think that, then it’s likely you never will. Perhaps it’s time to stop thinking your dad is the perfect man.

9.
object

This one also makes me sad. If the bride/groom is thinking this on their wedding day, then what sort of marriage will this be?

10.
spray-on-tan

Amen. You know who you are.

11.
turbulence

Just another example of where it behooves us to follow rules. Pilots and flight attendants are human, too. AND they have our lives in their hands – ’nuff said.

12.
regret

Being young = being stupid. However, it doesn’t HAVE to be that way.

13.
waiting2

Indeed, I’ve been asking myself this question for years.
