For reals. Like, who took it? Was there a sale in aisle 6 that I missed?

I've been working on my Christmas post all day. Yes, I know, Christmas is long since past. Don't worry, there shall be no Christmas post. ๐Ÿ˜” And it was basically done, except the main part was supposed to be the video of the Parade of Lights... and HALF the files on the GoPro won't upload. The images we got were few and far between, but I recorded the whole parade.

I was just working chronologically with the video and have about 40 seconds of edited footage... and about 20 minutes I can't get to.

Generally, this wouldn't make me feel like the world was ending, but on top of that, my motivation has been nonexistent. Like, I've just walked around the house staring at things today. ๐Ÿ˜ I DID exercise (update post on that tomorrow), so that's good. But STILL!

I'm gonna go ahead and blame the moon. It's full, if you didn't know. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

And just because I wanna, I'm gonna share a couple of Christmas pics with you. ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŽ„

Yes. I tricked you, a little. But I AM really upset.

Nothing a little Christmas cheer can't clear up! (Hopefully... just bare with me.)

Let's start with the buddies! I attempted to get all three of our four-leggeds into a holiday shot. It was MUCH harder than I thought it would be. What, with the kitty trying to remove the antlers and the dogs only paying attention for a cookie... Well, here's a little animation of the attempts. None were real winners. ๐Ÿ˜

Here's my favorite one of Oberon and @chrisroberts. They LOVE dressing up. ๐Ÿ˜

And lastly, one of me and @chrisroberts having a fabulous time at the parade...which you will never see... that will only live in our memories until the end of time...๐Ÿ˜•


Hey. I know I normally don't bitch. So thanks for hanging through. It was actually cathartic just creating THIS post, even though it wasn't the one I had intended. Plus, when else am I suppose to use those hilarious cranky Bitmojis? LOL! ๐Ÿ˜…

But really, I actually thought this:

It's a bit laughable now.๐Ÿ˜

Sometimes I just gotta work through the muck until I come out on the other side.

Oh, yeah!

Bwahahahahaha!
This is SO me!

For realz. I love lists. Mostly because every time I check something off I get a reward!

And most times that reward is a little weed R&R. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

In fact... got a little something waiting for me right now...

That is hilarious!

As a video editor person, I can SO relate to your pain! Especially when you have a deadline (even if it's just your own!)

Those photos of the dogs with the hats, though, TOTALLY made my night! :) Love your posts. You're awesome, even when you're feeling unmotivated!

Thank you!

Yes. It was only MY deadline, but still.

Side note: I DID try to do a pull-up. It was a horrible fail. Sadly, I kinda thought I'd be able to do it... but can't even get close... yet. I've finally started some strength training that should help. ๐Ÿ˜Œ

Inverted pull ups are the way to go for training. I'm getting stronger... Hopefully i will accomplish it soon.

I just looked that up. I don't really have anything I can safely use to do those currently. May have to get creative.

I hear ya. You may be able to do inverted rows using a table/counter top, which will definitely help strengthen your shoulders and back... I missed my pull up bars when I was out of state and was glad to get back home!

Thanks for sharing your husband's post. Definitely worth the read.

I've been there before and I think I'm on day 4 of consecutive posts for the first time since I've joined Steemit because I usually run out of motivation too quickly.

You're welcome!
I haven't been able to do 4 days yet. I feel like it's more of a mental block than anything else. And I got excuses for days... which all boil down to lazy. ๐Ÿ˜

The good news? I'm getting better every day. ๐Ÿ˜

Happy New Years and to lots of motivation in 2018 :)

Happy New Year to you! I'm hoping I had just run out at the end of the year. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Awesome picture of Chris on the couch ๐Ÿคฃ

A salty post every once in a while is a good thing, it cleanses the palate (the better to be ready for 2018)!

Wishing you both a Happy New Year chock full of all the motivation you could ask for โค

I love that pic! Cracks me up every time. Easier to get ONE animal and a human looking in the same direction. ๐Ÿ˜‰

haha well turned out as a great post still
Happy new year Carrie. More motivation in 2018 !

It seems we all have a finite amount of motivation per year and I had simply tapped out a day early. ๐Ÿ˜‚

I'll have to plan better this year. ๐Ÿ˜

The middle picture is priceless. lol
Happy New Year!

Lol! I know!

I'm sure it will bring us much joy year after year. ๐Ÿ˜

You can describe a "bad day" and still be sunnier than most of the grumpy asses walking this earth... LOL!

LOL! That's pretty true. Especially AFTER the fact. I've gotten better at looking at things, laughing a little and learning my lesson.

i liked in your post dear...happy new year my steemit friend

Happy New Year!
