How do you know? I’ll tell you how!

September 14, 2017

Today you get to see one of my mistakes……..I made a video for the National Caregiving Conference, but as I’ve done since first grade in St. Aloysious Catholic School, I did not follow directions. So, I’m making another one………..but for a screw-up, it’s not bad. And the #NCC17 #NationalCaregivingConference said, “Hey, ……share it, anyway!” So, I am…because if there’s anything I do too much, it’s share!

P.S. I also think they said under their breath, “next time, read the directions.” But Sister Marie Genevieve said that a billion times and it never worked.

    I speak in tongues quite a lot so I guess I can now update my CV.

    If you’re keeping a daily log of someone’s bathroom habits—and sharing that information with others, . . . you might be a caregiver.

    Or maybe you’re just a pervert.

      Probably a caregiver, even perverts have standards.

    Mistake or not, it was great!

      Thanks, Karen. Perhaps if I had put actual wine in the glass I would have followed directions!

    I think this one is great!

    I didn’t see a mistake, either. Sister Marie Genevieve should have let well enough alone!

    I admire anyone who can be a caregiver. That takes a lot of love.

      Thanks, Kathy. My content needs to be about the theme, not a call to get to the conference. So, I’ll do 2 more minutes. What with the wine and all…I should be okay! Ha!

    Even though you told me what the mistake was, I didn’t notice when I watched the video. Lots of fun and good info too!

      Yeah…so now I’ll do another 2 minutes. Maybe I’ll have a stand-up career after this!

    Couldn’t see the screw-up at all. It was a great video. I couldn’t answer yes to any of those statements, so I guess I’m not a caregiver but now I want to go just to hear you! 🙂

      How great would it be to see all my Facebook friends at the conference…just for the fun of it! A girl can dream!
