I was so overextended last week - playing catch up left and right - and if I were playing pro ball, I would have been shipped back down to the minors for excessive errors.
Even when I got ahead of the ball, I still managed to strike out! (End of the baseball analogy, I promise.)
Do you ever feel like you should just give up and take to your bed with an entire cheesecake?
Case in point: The Craft's Meow video for its blog post yesterday. I had that thing ready to go a WEEK ago. I was so flippin' smug about it, I would have deserved a slap had anyone cared to give it to me.
Karma cared a lot.
Karma slapped the livin' daylights outta me, in fact.
There I was, 11:30 p.m, Sunday night (post scheduled to publish at 12:01 a.m.) showing my video to Spouse, and after we're finished, he says, "I don't want to tell you this, but...."
The problem was on the very first frame. The title frame, to be exact. Back in March, I made a template for the beginning and end "credits" so I could easily switch out info each month. I was Being Efficient.
So there we are, looking at Happy Birthday when it should read Wedding Day.
I could have screamed. I think I did scream, actually.
Aaaaaaanyway, I had to edit the video, obviously. Making the actual change took less than two minutes. Having iMovie "prepare" the video for sharing... not so fast (try 60+ minutes). Then uploading it to YouTube took another 20 minutes or so.
To say I was furious would be an understatement. And, of course, in the midst of all the angst and the late hour, I totally forgot to publish my own post about the video at TCM (which had also been written a week ago). AND I didn't even include a picture of my card in TCM's post. Luckily, we have a very patient and kind DT leader who alerted me to these omissions or there still wouldn't be a card over there or a post over here.
There are times when I seriously wonder how I have managed to make it thus far without being institutionalized.
I expect the men in little white jackets any day now....
Thanks for stopping and have a blessed day!
