Single Ladies Devastation, hug and Tuesday

- This little video has turned into one of my favorites. This nice family from Atlanta were singing Beyonce's "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" when it took an unexpected turn. But all is well now and the good news - the family won the People's Choice Award for Favorite Viral Video. I'll be singing that uh uh oh part of the song all day now.

- Greeting a client, who I haven't seen in two years, with a hug. She was having an unhappy day and needed it.

- Talking to my mother while driving home through the rain yesterday (using hands free device and not on the expressway) - she asked if I had a good day. I gave an uncharacteristic sigh, adding, "It was a Monday." She asked (after a pause,) "How do you feel about Tuesday?" I like it just fine and will make it a good day.

Oh, that is the cutest video. "Horrible Father" lol. Life is so sweet and fun.

I hope you WILL like your Tuesday, Lynn. Raining here. No tree branch lopping for me today, but decorating those remaining 18 pots today will keep me occupied! :)

Your mother sounds so sweet, like you!


Fireblossom said...

That little girl in blue says it all without saying a word. LOL!

Granny Annie said...

Love the video and will be sharing it with family.

Don't hug me or you'll just make my day worse.

Did you know that them better your weekend, the more likely it is to have a heart attack on Monday?

Lynn said...

Jannie -

Oh - it's raining all over, I guess. But we need it, I'm thinking. :)

Life is sweet and fun. My mother is sweet and I try to be! You are, too, Jannie Muffin.


FB -

I know, she's great and the sister on the left yells out "Daaad!" As if they have to contend with this kind of teasing all the time. :)

Granny Annie -

Yes - there is a certain of amount of sensing when a hug is welcome. She had put off coming in to pick up something for two weeks, but chose to come in yesterday right after having a long-time pet put down. So I sensed that she was looking for comfort from me.

I did not know that - good to know.

It was a boy I guess with a nip and tuck he could be a she.

Snow blowing took a hour to get home 10 miles. 30 feet was a great view of more blowing snow.

Right now till tomorrow night the say more of the same.

Lynn~ Your Mom sounds amazing! What a good come back!

Louvregirl said...

I think I would have used that moment to teach the boy; well Daddy isn't a single lady either (so you and I are in the same exact club here)...BUT; we both can sing with the ladies for FUN! O.K.?? Let's sing!

TALON said...

That video cracks me up. :)

A hug at the right time from the right person can make all the difference in the world.

Poor Mondays - they get such a bad rap even though they so often deserve it - lol!

Meredith said...

"How do you feel about Tuesday?" Your mom is delightful. :D I do hope your Tuesday is going beautifully, Lynn.

That video is adorable. Thanks for sharing it. (I'm afraid I'm sometimes out of the viral video loop.) And I'm with Fireblossom: the body language of the daughter in the middle is classic! So expressive.

Bluetooth makes phone usage in the car so nice--I often use it to talk on my way home, but because of being in the country, often end up with dropped calls.

Lance said...

I love the video, Lynn!!!

Too funny!!!

Happy Tuesday to YOU and your mother!

Ileana said...

My Tuesday's going pretty well...the skies are blue, grass is green, it's in the 70s. Hope yours is going great!

That video is funny...poor little guy! lol

Lynn said...

Ellis -

That's a lot of snow!

lg -

My mom is amazing. :) And I watched an interview with this family that was on The Early Show and they are bloggers (like us!) and were just intending to make a film of the kids having fun with that Single Ladies song.

I believe the father is a musician of some sort, too.

Talon -

I think so, too. :) And it is a good thing Monday comes just once a week!

Meredith -

They are such a great family. And I am having a pretty good Tuesday - I've gotten a lot done today.

Sage -

I have those ear buds with the dangly cords, but they work.

Lance -

Happy Tuesday to you, too!

Lulu -

Ah sounds like paradise there in Miami. :)

That video is so cute!

Riot Kitty said...

I had a rather awful day (or rather, parts of it were awful) beginning with my hair dryer almost catching on fire this a.m.

I like your mom's attitude- "How do you feel about Tuesday?" Good point! How do I feel about Wednesday? Better.

Lynn said...

Mama Zen -

I'm glad you like it. :)

Riot Kitty -

That does sound like an awful start! I hope Wednesday is better, my friend.

Snaggle Tooth said...

I got to see the video today Very funny. We all have those need a hug days- Always feels better to talk to Mom- I miss my nother's optimism.

Lynn said...

Snaggle -

I'm so glad you got to see it! I am dealing with an aging desktop computer at home, so I understand.
