Riveting Video, Isn’t it?

Unbelievable! I had this awesome idea before I left for vacation. My plan was to record a few videos answering some Ask Roni questions and then have them posted on the site while I was away on vacation.

So after the gym and lunch, I put the toddler down for nap, took a shower and closed my office door.

I was in a chipper mood, I laughed, I cried, I answered the questions the best way I could, all 20 of them. It took about an hour and I was going to chop them into 4 videos. I had fun and when I was done I felt really good about the recording and the idea. Then the toddler woke up, it was perfect!

I left my office, ate dinner, played with the family and then hit my office again while the husband was giving the toddler his bath. I go to edit the videos and prep them for the web and this is what I see…

COME ON! Are you kidding me!??! No AUDIO?!

I was devastated! I hate it when things like this happen. Not because I can’t do it again but because it was a huge time waster. Plus my second take is never as good as the first and I get overwhelmed that I have to redo something I already did. UGH! Apparently my iMovie setting got all messed up because of a microphone I plugged in. I had to call MAC support to get everything back in order.

So the cat is out of the bag. I really wanted to surprise you all with a video while I was away. *sigh* I may re-record. We’ll see.

As for the last day in my loss week. All went well, BUT I lost my food journal file. Don’t ask. I don’t know WHAT is going on with me and technology lately. Maybe I really do need this vacation. As of now I didn’t dip into any more weekly points but I may. I have 12 left.

OK, I may or may not post again before vacation. I did post a question on GreenLiteBites if you have time to take a look.

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.
