Happy Sunday, pals!
This week has been so crazy busy that it actually necessitated my very first Week in Review!!
Not too excited about it, eh? Yeah, I feel you. This has the potential to come across as arrogant (does anyone really care about this week but ME?), and possibly a bit boring. So to spice things up, I’ve invited a friend to help me recap the last six days. Introducing…
Thank you, thank you Mr. Shemar Moore. Really, you’re too kind to flash that perfect smile and put on a shirt for my first Week in Review. I appreciate
your abs you more than you know. Now let’s get it on.
<Cue Marvin Gaye>
MONDAY: For this week’s Project Optimism, I regaled you with the story of when crazy met exhaustion, AKA: when I met my husband. Dude is super hyper and he makes me tired. But he also made me some really adorable babies, so I’ll keep him. You can read about us HERE.
TUESDAY: I’ve been feeling the pressure of keeping a blog and all its entities afloat. I love it, but it’s hard work! Facebook pages, Pinterest accounts–ahhh! You can read that rant HERE.
WEDNESDAY: I did it! With the help of one of my favorite writers, There’s More Where That Came From’s Paige Kellerman, I launched my Oversharing Series! Her mole is hair-free, although her lash line could use some love; submerse yourself in her funny HERE.
THURSDAY: Thursday was NUTS. I guest-blogged over at The Sadder But Wiser Girl about why our country doesn’t pay attention to education the way it does to ridiculous reality TV shows. Deep thoughts by me. Join the fun HERE.
I also wrote a silly piece on the perfect Momobile HERE.
Also on Thursday…
The Official How to Blog published my How to Become a Bloghole piece. If you’ve written a how-to guide for, well, anything, contact the genius behind The Office How to Blog HERE. She’s a hoot! <—-evidence I am turning into my mother.
I totally forgot to tell you guys about this one: I’ve finally contributed something to Families in the Loop, the Chicago-based parenting website that accepted my sorry ace as a regular parent blogger! Originally, I wrote something about baseball season, but because it’s March and men play basketball in March (who knew? who cares?), my boss lady thought it best to publish something else in the meantime. She was entertained by a random open letter to the boy band,
The New Kids on the Block N’Sync One Direction and slapped it up on her site! Never before been published, so if you’re up for new reading (and I hope that you are!), you can find it HERE.
FRIDAY: My priest sent me an e-mail that made me forget my Lenten promise to be more patient and I made me super sad to be a part of his flock. You can see the original e-mail, my response, his subsequent response, and some rockin’ comments from lovely readers like you HERE. It was a hot topic on my Facebook page, too; check it out HERE. <—- If you’re there and want to “like” my page, I wouldn’t hate it.
SATURDAY: I finally had the chance to sit down and write about how much I loved the Momthology (did I coin a word?) I Just Want to Pee Alone. I pretended my review was more important than all the others and dubbed it The Most Official. I even uploaded an excerpt of it to Amazon.com because I’m a boss. You can read it HERE. And seriously, get the book. No one has asked me to say that, paid me to support it, or even offered to throw me a few Facebook fans (*wink); I just really dig it.
SUNDAY: That’s today. And this is all you get. Oh, and this:
If you and yours are in the path of what better be the last damn winter storm because if I don’t see a daffodil soon, I’m raging against the machine and wear a tank top and flip flops while we build a snowman, STAY SAFE!
