The week in review

Driving the 140 miles back from a full day of meetings at the magazine’s headquarters, something occurred to me: I haven’t blogged all week.
It’s been a crazy busy week and I haven’t cooked once — but that actually has nothing to do with our hectic schedule. See, the Mr. and I have been living in a travel trailer in the driveway all week while 3 men have been painting away, helping us complete our transformation of the bachelor pad I moved into 1.5 years ago. It’s looking so good, and I can’t wait to share pics with you once I get the house cleaned up and the décor back on the walls! (And, most importantly, we didn’t have to paint it!)
I wish I’d gotten before pics, but the afters will have to do. While we don’t plan on staying in this house more than a year or 2, it’s much more resale-ready now and will be much more enjoyable for us in the meantime!
In addition to the alternate living/working situation, Tuesday I had a speaking engagement. I spoke to the area CattleWomen organization about my work at the magazine, beef advocacy and social media. They were all so nice and had lots of good questions, so it was a really fun meeting. Today, I had 3 meetings back-to-back, so I was either in the car or in a meeting the majority of my day.
The painters should be finished tomorrow evening, so we’ll be spending a big chunk of the weekend cleaning up and moving furniture around. We’re also headed a couple of hours away to a friend’s wedding Saturday night.
So, in a nutshell, that’s why I’ve been MIA this week. But, not to worry, I enjoyed lots of beef as always and look forward to getting back in the swing of things next week.
What about you? What has your week held?
