Reeking of Gleek

I did it.

I went to see Glee Live on Thursday night in Los Angeles with Ciaran from Momfluential, leaving my husband in charge of the three kids, including the One Who Nurses Before Bed.

What can I say? I'm a Gleek first, mom second! Okay, not really, I mean, I don't think so, but, well...

In honor of the occasion, I did my very first vlog. And you'll see that when I actually say the word "vlog" it is with emphasis. Cause I really mean it! Also, please ignore the kids in the background in the end part of it. I don't know what Sawyer is doing to X, but we'll have words about it tomorrow. I mean, I have photographic evidence!

Anyway, please be gentle when viewing this. The first time is always awkward, you know?





p.s. I know you want to hear how X did without me. Let's just say he woke up at 7:15 this morning - I assumed he was exhausted from crying for hours last night. Because he misses me! He needs me!

Not so much. The boy apparently went down without a peep at 7:15 p.m. That's right. He slept 12 hours! Couldn't he have thrown me a small bone and at least whimpered for a minute? Where is the love, I ask you? Where is the love?

Tried to watch it but it said this was a private video and we needed to be friends for me to be able to view it. I thought we were friends (sniff, sniff) ;)

Julie said...

Dying to watch!! I've been waiting all night. :)

And, um. Did you just wean your nighttime feeding? Congrats! You're one step closer to Blogher!

Aging Mommy said...

YAY!!! You did it, you went to the show and your son was just fine, I am so happy for you and also VERY envious as I would so love to see Glee too!

Oh, and the Vlog was just wonderful!

Cheryl said...

The video should work for all!

julie -actually...no. Hubs wasn't home last night so I had to put him down, and he wanted to nurse. Sigh.

Charlene - thanks for stopping by!

Andrea - thanks!

Wow your first vlog was so amazing. I did mine a few weeks ago and it stunk. I dont follow Glee but I captured the excitement from your video.

Cheryl said...

Deb - Thanks!!!

Lucy - Thanks for stopping by. The vlog thing is tough - I hate watching myself on video!

Mandy P said...

AWESOME!!!!! Loved it. You are inspiring me to do one, but I don't think I'm brave enough just yet. =) Your house is beautiful, BTW...

Allyson & Jere said...

The phrase "reeking of Gleek" caught my eye and I had to stop in from SITS.

May I just say, SO GLAD I did. I read quite a few of your entries you marked as ones people liked. I can officially say..I LIKED! I like you, I like your writing. I'm so glad I found you.

I especially liked your entry on "what I didn't say" to your friend with her newborn. Such a TRUE post. This parenting thing IS hard, so hard and terrifying and great all at the same time. I appreciate my own parents more each day.

Anyway, long comment, but I just wanted you to know that I really enjoy your blog and now, dangit, ANOTHER blog to follow. I'm seriously out of control.

Oh shoot, one more thing. I thought you were adorable on your vlog. But, I totally get the "awkwardness." I DETEST seeing myself on video or even hearing my voice recorded.

yulz said...

Congratulation on your first VLog =) I would like to try and make one for myself but I'm just so NOT good infront of video camera LOL

Happy Sunday SITStas =)

I fear the vlog, but I'm so proud of you! Both for vlogging and for getting your Gleek on! Jealous!

mooneyequalsmc2 said...

If Vlogs are the future, I am in big trouble. I just cannot fathom the fun in recording myself talking. Oy vey.

YOU did a great job. I am sure. I do not have speakers on this computer though.

but GLEE?

Sweet! I am a total Gleek. I need my Glee soundtracks to hang out laundry. My neighbors think that i am insane.

Stopped over from SITS!

Tom and Karen Mortensen said...

Good job. Glad you had fun.

MOMSICLE VIBE said...

Hello from SITS!! I spied the word Gleek and ran straight over :) I have just discovered Glee (yeah, I crawled out of my dank little cave) and for the love of Good Clean Fun, I LOVE IT!!! I have snooped around a wee bit here and I like it here. I might stay.

Happy Sunday to you.

The Mommyologist said...

Awesome!! I am such a Gleek too and I will have to check and see if the tour is coming to CT!! How FUN! Great job on the vlog too!

Seriously, you need to stop with the cuteness! I am so glad you got your gleek on! Also your boobs looked awesome! xo

Kristy said...

Twelve hours! That is awesome!

Rudri said...

Congratulations on the V-Log. I think it takes courage to do that. I love how you did a recap of the concert and then did a next morning bit. Think your on to something with this V-log. Thanks!

Stacia said...

I'm still singing the songs from last week's episode. Every tiiiiiiiime I look in the mirror ... Love that show!

Mayhem and Moxie said...

I was *just* really starting to get into the vlog and then, BAM, you were back at home. You tempt us with your Glee clip. Too funny!

So glad the house didn't burn to the ground in your absence. Always an added bonus.

Shell said...

I only watched Glee for the first few episodes- because it was on right after So You Think You Can Dance. That's my addiction.

I have to admit that I kind of want my kids to give dh a hard time when I'm not there at bed time. LOL

Elise said...

I love the vlog! Great stuff, honey!! I didn't even know what a Gleek was (what does that make me??) But now I get it.

Lisa said...

My jealousy threatens to consume me right now. OH HOW I LOVE THE GLEE!!

Love the vlog, too!

Whitney Wingerd said...

Yay! I was wondering how it was. Looks like you guys had a fab time- and loved the first vlog!
