The Cup Song. Kind of. But not really.

I will admit, I haven’t blogged in nearly a month, and overall have been noticeably absent in 2013. Our recent move back to the US has left me feeling upside-down, I’ve been in a bit of a funk and not in a “let’s laugh at the differences” kind of way.

It’s no secret that I’m a bit obsessive, and more so lately as I make the adjustment back to American life and find myself a bit rudderless; I seem to be fixating on whatever turns out to be the project of the day. It’s been crazy, and busy, with sick kids, house moves, more sick kids, a big weekend with Solemn Communion and my mother-in-law visiting, and yesterday’s snow day.

Today I should have been catching up on a backlog of laundry, cleaning house, and other truly exciting stuff. *snore*

Instead, my obsessive self became wrapped up in learning “The Cup Song” (You’re Gonna Miss Me When I’m Gone) – which was one of this week’s prompts in Mama Kat’s almost award-winning Vlogging Workshop.

Apparently, it has gone viral on You Tube, which I would have known if I’d actually been near my laptop anytime recently.  Now, I have a (very) small (minute, actually) amount of rhythm, so I nailed down the cup bit after a few hours of trying 300 attempts a lot of effort and I could belt out the song pretty well mostly in tune loudly, but to put them both together?


Anywho, in that way that nothing ever goes as planned, it figures that one of my earliest takes was actually the best in terms of walking and chewing gum.  That is the closest I will come to an apology for what is my return to blogging and vlogging.

I assure you, I won’t ever try this again. Or if I do, I’ll take a note from Mullet Girl, and not actually sing.

If you want to see a truly amazing version of The Cup Song, I think my favorite is this cover by Amyspants on You Tube:

I’m not the only one who struggled with this challenge, but hey, we tried. Go check out the rest of the efforts at Mama Kat’s Vlogging Workshop. Really. We worked hard. Go give them some love.
