The Voice

When I was a kid my friends and I would tape record ourselves singing or reciting commercials.  It was fun and we laughed, but on playback I was secretly cringing.  I hated the way my voice sounded.  So much like Punky Brewster. Ugh.  

In college I had a literature performance class and we had to watch video of our performances.  Watching myself on video was torture.  My stupid un-matured Punky Brewster voice was one thing, but I hated my over sized teeth and droopy eyes.  I was beyond critical.  Ugh.

But I'm almost over it now.  I've been vlogging for a couple months now and it's helped me get over myself.  Yeah, my voice still resembles little Punky Brewster (especially this week with my cold), but so what.  I'm having fun and learning to not be so critical and self-loathing.

For the past couple of weeks I've been answering the question of the week from MomPulse.  This week's question is How do you keep the romance alive?

Well, here are my answers and yeah, I go there.  I get pretty real about our romantical challenges with four kids, a busy life and limited finances. Ch-ch-check it out.

And if you have any questions you want me to answer in a vlog, please send them my way.

  1. THANK YOU for putting it out there that the once-a-week date-night isn't feasible. i swear, i felt extra lame that i couldn't pull off a date night with any kind of regularity and YES it totally comes down to sitters and expense, but also, just energy. i don't have the energy MYSELF to get dolled up and leave my kids with someone and go out. i'd much rather have a drink and pizza and watch something in the comfort of my hizouse. so, thanks and big love to you!

    1. I am so glad that you agree! And I'm even more glad that you used the word "hizouse." I love reading your comments my friend. Thank you for reading, watching and commenting.
