GIVEAWAY: The Week That Was… January 3rd – 9th, 2016.

Here in early 2016, it’s a different kind of hustle than the one we saw closing 2015 out. In that last stretch, there was no end to the work on my plate, keeping me hustling at all hours to keep my blog on point. I had a list of things I wanted knocked out of the park before the year’s end, using every free moment I could find to hit my intense deadlines.

Now that it’s January, in some ways things are more relaxed — I mean, sure, any day now I’ll be racing to the hospital to welcome our second child into the world; and though I got a lot done in the weeks that just passed, there’s still plenty of unfinished business that’s followed me into 2016 — but I can hack away at my ideas gradually, taking my time to find the truth in my half-formed ramblings, not forcing square pegs into round holes and rush it all.

It’s giving me the time to build foundations, putting all the pieces in place so I can finish 2016 with a bang!

And this week was just another step towards that goal.

New York, New York, it’s a helluva town… but I was too busy enjoying its people to enjoy much of the sights.

The look of a man on the start of a hectic but ultimately fun trip down to The Big Apple.

Earlier this month, Citizen Canada reached out to see whether I’d be interested in flying out to NYC to interview Black-ish star Anthony Anderson on his experiences Behind the Clean — the numbers and narratives behind what being a Dad really means today, specifically in handling household chores. I hadn’t hit The Big Apple since 2010 when I’d proposed to a certain woman I’m still coincidentally married to, so I figured why not? It’d be a good change of pace!

How little I knew of what would lie ahead….
