The Week That Was... November 8th - 14th, 2015 — The Messiest Living Room EverI suffered a little burn-out after Little Man’s party, on the tail end of pushing ourselves for months with a busy schedule of family events. After the party — pretty much the last major event ’til Christmas — went off without a hitch, we could rest in what felt like the first time in ages, and my digital self slowed down the rest of me no longer keeping up with the frenetic pace of the #BloggerLife.

But that doesn’t mean I didn’t do anything at all in The Week That Was #6!

The Week That Was… October 18th – 24th, 2015.

This week that was made for one of the busiest I’ve had in ages, leading up to my brother taking the next step in his adult journey — getting married to his girlfriend of five years in a party that reminded me I’m not quite as young as I used to be.

So after managing three solid blog posts, I needed to shut down a while. Wanting his big day to go as smoothly as possible, I played my big brother role and stepped in to help where I could, but I wouldn’t realize it’d mean coordinating the limo driver and videographers; sourcing a new audio track for the ceremony’s soloist when the one provided proved sub-par; and fielding all manner of question on the fly as the guests sought to figure out the day. It meant writing a speech from his two brothers that outlined who he is, what he’s done, and what made the day as great as it was — a speech that got him the most emotional I think I’d ever seen him!

I struggled a lot with this week’s The Week That Was, trying to get in the right headspace to write on everything that happened. These seven days weren’t extraordinarily good nor bad — with how hectic my life usually is, you could even call them tame. I burned through page after page trying to get it right, but I couldn’t get it flowing as I wanted — a story worth reading for an audience that expects as much of me as I do of myself wasn’t within grasp, no matter how much I hustled.

But just because something’s hard doesn’t mean you don’t do it — sometimes you need to find another approach to getting your story across!

I mean, seriously — when some of your mornings start like this, would you want to write about it???

Welcome back for the second installment of The Week That Was…. Long weekends are long for a reason — between two Thanksgivings, surprise birthday parties and everything we do to keep up with Little Man’s limitless energy levels while he’s awake, squeezing blogging time in is virtually impossible. Anyone in their right mind would call it a weekend, kiss their kids goodnight, and turn in for the weekend themselves.

But take it from someone who knows — few of us family bloggers are in our right minds!

That said, here’s a second helping of The Week That Was and the random that kept me going as I continued through October!
