This is a slightly iconic post for me. This is my 50th post on this blog, I'm back from a week of not being able to blog, and I am doing something I am completely against in the blogging world...vlogging. I love it when other people vlog but for me, blogging is the ultimate platform for the socially terrified who feel safe knowing that nobody can 'see' them. Vlogging makes me seeable, hearable and takes me out of my typing only comfort zone.
The only reason I am vlogging is because Branden left me with the video camera while he was gone so naturally I documented my boring and awkward days without him. I have cut out a lot of footage (mostly due to unsightly angles and lack of makeup in some shots) and compiled it down to a short little compilation of some of the things I did while Branden abandoned me.
Luckily on the morning he left, a care package from my mom-in-law arrived so I had a box of goodies to craft with, some new pj's, a new book (The Help which is FABULOUS!) and TWO family sized boxes of Cheeze-its!!! I don't miss much food from the States but for some reason Cheeze-its are a weakness and I may have almost finished off an entire box by the time Branden got back...may have.
When Branden did get back, he called me as he was walking home. I managed to get him off of the phone so I could surprise him by meeting him halfway on the road. A couple was walking in front of him so he couldn't see me (plus he was looking at an ad for Ireland Master Chef on the side of a bus stop) so he jumped a mile and let out a shriek when I popped out from behind the couple and tried to hug/pounce on him! He must have assumed he was being mugged by the world's shortest mugger! We cracked up all the way back home over it. I can't tell you how happy I am to have him back home again!
...although the video footage may give you a clue.
