Day #6 of the 30-Day Video Challenge.
Good grief. You’re probably wondering if this is going to be an every other day commitment, since I’ve missed two days already. Hopefully not. Like I say in my video, I’m going to blame missing those two days on being the Conference Chairperson at OWFI. But, that conference is over as of yesterday, and I’ll do my best not to come up with another excuse. (It’s not recording the video that takes so long, it’s uploading it.)
Though it was a fantastic conference, made possible by dozens of volunteers for which I’m so, so grateful (I love our OWFI members!), it always, always feels good to get home. To sleep in my own bed, take a shower in my own bathroom, drink my own coffee, write in my own office. True, this apartment is a temporary home as I make it through this life transition, but it still feels like my sanctuary.
And I have another “good grief” to express. I sure don’t like having to watch myself on video before posting it. I don’t know if the rest of you feel the same way, but this is what goes through my head:
- Do I really look that old?
- Does my voice really sound like that?
- Talk louder.
- Speak slower.
- Smile, you grouch. Don’t take yourself so seriously.
- Why am I doing this?
Oh well. It is what it is. Here goes . . .
