#MirthMusicMon – Funny Mom Parodies

27 Jul

This has been an interesting day.

We woke up to a power blip that somehow knocked out internet out. We managed to get it fixed just in time for me to start work on Mirth and Music Monday. Whew!

Also, this has not been a good day, uh, morning sickness wise. On the up side, I don’t think my abs have ever been this solid. :)

Enough about me, it’s time for the fun stuff.

.

This first one is a mom parody of Let It Go (like you aren’t all more than a little tired of that tune), but it’s a good one. Honest.

.

The next one is a mom parody of Footloose (the song, not the entire movie).

Check out the link right Here to see who else has put together Mirth and Music Monday posts this week.

It’s the same link you would need if you are interested in playing along with us. All that is required is that your post have something funny and something musical. Then simply put your link in the list and voila! you’re a member of the #MirthMusicMon group.

Have a Great Week!

I Have Lost My Black Book

23 Jul

One of the worst things that can happen to someone who uses many social media sites has happened to me: I have lost the black book that contains my list of passwords.

I don’t know where and I’m not sure how, but it’s gone.

The last place I remember holding it is when I decided it was too heavy to take with me on the roadtrip in early June. I took it out of the suitcase and… blank.

It will be found. It must. I am just waiting for that forehead smacking moment when I either wonder why I didn’t look in that particular place to begin with or ask myself what I was thinking ever putting it there.

Until that glorious day I will be limited on my range of social media movement.

And believe me, the moment the thing is found I will be making a copy of that info and putting it in my sock drawer!

.

And here’s a little something for a laugh:

#MirthMusicMon – Grumpy Cat and Sukiyaki

14 Jul

Monday, Monday, can’t trust that day… to not sneak up on you!

It’s Mirth and Music Monday, everybody. Time for some giggles and tunes. :)

.

This first one is a video where kids watch a clip of Grumpy Cat and give their thoughts.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIQTNhZyWGE

Some days I do actually tell my husband that I’ll be getting a shovel and digging a hole in the back yard and he can join me when he’s taken care of a certain “problem”. Since we have very clay heavy soil around here he usually tells me to have fun with that and that he’s not going to finish the hole for me. haha!

.

While having nothing to do with a grumpy cat or children I decided to pop in one of my all time favorite oldies.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zpOc9n7dlI

Growing up I thought it was amazing that an American could get that accent so right. Uh-huh. It was only a few weeks ago that I found out that it was sung by a man from Japan. And also that it sat at #1 on America’s charts for two straight weeks in 1963 (I think). Pretty cool. :)

.

If you would like to see who else is playing along this week go ahead and click HERE to be taken to the linky where you can choose the next blog.

This is also the same place where you would input your link if you would like to add your contribution to Mirth and Music Monday. It’s really very easy.

*            *           *

I do have to say that I owe a lot of people apologies for the last couple weeks. I have not been as attentive and on top of things as I should be. I have flaked out on a couple responsibilities and I am truly sorry for the confusion and aggravation that has been inflicted on Emily Witt and ReGi McClain and on you my readers.

This has been a rough couple months on me in many ways, but that should not have interfered with the one day of the week I have steady obligations here.

*           *            *

One exciting thing in the middle of all this misery… or rather the cause of it is something someone who is scheduled to make their first ever appearance some time in mid to late January.

In case that is too vague — I’m pregnant!

Thirteen weeks along and to be honest I am hating nearly every moment of it. Between the nausea, vomiting, food and smell aversions, guarding against the return of oral thrush and a couple other unpleasant pregnancy symptoms I don’t really have mental space to sit around and daydream about how lovely it is to be a mommy in the making. Nope, just over 3 months along and I’m already yelling at the kid “Would you finish growing and get out already?!”

They say every pregnancy is different, but I have to say that if the next one is as miserable as this I really hope we can afford to just hook me up to an iv bag and knock me out for the first half of it.

The sad thing is that I’m not even kidding.

Have a Great week!

#MirthMusicMon – Sold!

23 Jun

A girlfriend of mine really loved this song and I always found it amusing. Then one day my husband told me that it had a fun music video. Well, that sent me straight to YouTube, of course. I’ve had so much fun every time I’ve watched it I figured it was about time I shared.

Enjoy!  :)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qqa0Fc2kBBY

.

Other than watching tons of fun videos on YouTube this week I haven’t been up to much. Unless you count being sick and miserable. Thankfully I got in to see the doctor today. I’m on a prescription mouth wash for the next 6 days and things should be more or less back to normal.

Thank goodness.

Once again, if you’re the praying kind they would be much appreciated as I’m still only able to hold down liquids at this time. That should change in a couple days, but in the meantime it’s still unpleasant and uncomfortable.

.

If you would like to see more Mirth and Music Monday posts (without the whining ;) ) head on over to the linky. From there you can click over to any other MMM posts, or submit your own!  :)

Have a Great week!

#MirthMusicMon – Mad Libs and

16 Jun

Wow, it’s Monday! These last couple weeks have been so odd and… odd that I barely know which end is up.

But enough about me, this is Mirth and Music Monday. The day when we put up a video or, um, three that has something funny and something musical.

Let the entertainment begin!

.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJav6R2ONHc

That game is so much fun. :)

Um, if any of you are the praying type, I could use a few this week. My health is what has been odd. Not in a fun way. Thanks. <3

#MirthMusicMon – Cinderella and Step Sisters

9 Jun

Today somebody said the word ‘impossible’ within my hearing and all of a sudden the song from Rogers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella was on repeat in my head. So to get it out I will be depositing it into your head. hehehe

But first for the mirth! For that I have chosen a song called the Step Sisters Lament. It’s from the same play, it merely looks different because it’s from the ’65 production.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zCItA-a-xg0

.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w-lEAHwCaS4

.

Yeah, I know it’s not Thanksgiving. What it is is exactly what I was looking for, so you know, whatever.

.

I know it’s kind of silly of me, but I hate it when people say something is impossible. There have been too many times when impossible has been disproved.

It was ‘impossible’ to pole vault any higher until someone re-imagined the jump and then the pole.

It was ‘impossible’ for the human body to handle speeds above a horse’s gallop, but we’ve gone fast enough to break the speed of sound and then some.

The idea of impossible kind of ticks me off.

Alright, time to step off the soap box.

But still!  Argh!

Ok, I’m done. I’m done.

.

Just, could we maybe attempt a little bit of our own ‘impossible’s this week?

Only a little bit.

#MirthMusicMon… I Liked You Better Deaf

1 Jun

It’s time for Mirth and Music Monday! Yay!

I found a song that made me giggle all 3 times I watched the video.  :)

So without further ado, my addition to the meme:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MEYI3DHO1ZA

.

If you liked that video go ahead and hop on over to ReGi McClain’s blog and visit the linky on the upper right hand side. From there you can see any other Mirth and Music Monday posts for this week.

(She told me last week that I can put a linky on my own page, and how to, but things have been really spinning around here. I will try to get to it in the next couple weeks. Try. :/ )

And if you would like to play along with us, the linky is where you put in your URL. (It’s very simple. If I can do it anyone can do it.)

Have a Good Week, Everyone!

All These Spinning Plates, er, Projects

28 May

So many secrets.

So many whispers.

It’s about good things, thankfully.

For those of you in the know it’s a wink wink nod nod carry on.

For those of you who are not in on the secrets please know that you are not loved any less. It’s just that there are so many projects being juggled at the moment it would be hard to keep everyone on the same page at the same time. Plus, if some of them don’t fly, it would kind of suck to have to admit that to too many people.

What I can tell you is that:

We are still looking for an artist to collaborate on a graphic novel. Someone who can stick closely with my husband’s vision for his story. Someone who knows the steampunk genre. Lonnie hasn’t been stagnant, though. He has added more pages to the adventure, and has quite a bit more still in his head. So far we figure he has a years worth of material. Not bad, really.

We are still trying to get an office together. The strange thing is that the more we look into it the more we find that it will be easier to keep a big place open than a little one. We have contacted several real estate agents, and chosen one in particular to represent us locally. We have another in California, but that’s a whole other story.

Our diet is going well. Although the guys are not losing weight as fast as they would like there are subtle changes every week. It’s not really working as well for me, but I already knew that it was going to take a little more work with my reactive hypoglycemia taken into account. That’s alright. I have officially fit back into my size 8 jeans, and exhausted a couple belts trying to keep my other pants up.  Happy!  :D

I get to go on another road trip in a few weeks. I’m so excited!  It’s with my Aunt and Grandma again. We’re going to go visit some relatives. So as you can tell we’re really going to be tearing it up. lol  It will still be fun. Those two keep me in stitches.  :)

My garden is mostly planted. Let me see, that includes spinach, leaf lettuce, bunching onions, two kinds of peas, cucumber, tomato, bell pepper, watermelon, and cantaloupe. Everything but the lettuce is doing very well. I don’t know what’s wrong with the lettuce, it’s just not coming up quickly and seeming to be failing to thrive. The spinach, on the other hand, is going to be picked this evening (that will make for the 3rd harvest so far). Carrots will go in around the tomato, and radishes will be planted between the cucumbers.

There are a few more projects in the works. These will be brought to the light for everyone to ooh and aw at when the times are right. Until then, we will continue to work away, hoping that everything lines up for us.

.

It’s a little bit like this…

Keep those projects in motion!

MMM… Summer is Coming!

25 May

And you know what that means?

Yeah, swimsuits. Ick.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k2uxpIlGCi0

.

While I don’t quite require as much coverage as that last one,

I’m not far from it.  :/

.

Time for a little nostalgia!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ge9Ou3-YyqU

.

No, I’m happy with my red, white and blue suit, thank you very much.

He’s a cutie, though. :)

.

And, just so we haven’t forgotten that it’s Memorial Day:

If you liked this post, or if you’re willing to give this meme another chance go ahead and click here to visit ReGi McClain’s blog, which is where you will find the linky.

Think you could have a lot of fun with this idea? (Don’t be shy, people. There’s only so much that Emily Witt and I can do.) Go ahead and put together your own Mirth and Music Monday post and put it in the linky so we can all see it (and share it on Twitter for you! #MirthMusicMon).  All you have to do to qualify is create a post that has both mirth and music. That could mean a comic strip, a funny meme, or a blooper video plus a piece of classical music, a music video, or part of a Broadway production. Or it could be just one video that’s both funny and musical. It could be any combination of things. Let your imagination out to play! :)

.

Have a Fun Week!
