Cut!

Today I am wearing my movie-maker hat. Really, I should be sitting in a personalized director's chair with a nice beret atop my head, a clipboard in one hand and a megaphone sitting eagerly next to me.

As it is, I am on my couch, still in my pajamas with the phone at one side and middle daughter on the other. (don't worry: the children are being taken care of- they are on schedule and have consumed two meals today.)

I am attempting to create a lovely video for my Relief Society lesson on Sunday. All about families. And it's going pretty well, except for some reason i have this highlighted on top of every single screen I enter

1 C:\Users\Stephanie\Videos\RS Movie- Families
***********************************
In fact, it is on this very screen as I type. Right on the title line. I don't know. As you know, the husband is the computer savvy one in this family. I totally don't speak computer. For all I know I have just given myself a virus and as soon as I hit *publish post* it is going to spread throughout the universe and throw the international space station out of orbit. And it will be known as the RS Movie Virus. And it will probably affect your blog tomorrow, because I believe it is on a little time delay. Sorry in advance. I will loan out the husband to come and fix it for you. {Goodbye husband for the next couple of weeks while you are the I.T. guy to the world- all because of my little movie.}
******************
But, I will just stick with my ignorant state and continue with my little movie. I hope it turns out. Because I think it's going to be pretty good. You should come see it on Sunday. Plenty of seats still available. In fact, since it is Super Bowl XLIII Sunday, every seat could be available. Especially since our little team, the Cardinals, are playing in that game. Have you heard of them? I mean, before two weeks ago? But, I will be at church, teaching my lesson. And I may or may not be showing a little movie.
*********************
K, gotta get back to my movie. The take 5 is over.

PS- i can tell the virus is starting because for some reason i can't get separate paragraphs for the whole last half of this post. so i just used these: *************i was not made to commune with technology...

I'm sure your video will be great -- wish I was going to be there to see it! (PS I don't really get along with computers either. Luckily my husband gives me a killer rate for computer consulting services!)

Good luck. I'm sure it'll all be great since your husband knows what to do. Aren't they great?

My blogger does stuff like that every now and then all the time. Extra breaks or none at all. I hhave to go in and delete all the HTML stuff and just do it over.

Good luck on your lesson!! I'm sure they will feel the spirit even if you don't play the video. It will be o.k.

I can't stop laughing about this post, and I am now waiting for the official word that the space station is in fact out of orbit.
