OK, so I went 30 days between my last two posts. I’m sure I’ve done a post or two like this in the past, but again it’s my blog and I can post what I want to.
I’ve been busy. I run marketing for Calendars.com. As I hope you can imagine, the last several months are slightly busy in the calendar business. My team had a hell of a year breaking nearly every record they could and busting through almost every challenge they faced. I’m excited about the coming year.
Directing marketing for “the largest selection of calendars in the known universe” and getting pumped about the year is really a very minor part of what’s been going on with my family. I’m also doing what a husband can do when his wife is expecting. Let’s face it, that basically means I try to be as helpful as I can and not pretend that I have any idea what my wife is going through. Seriously, this is baby number three for us and, from my perspective, it has been the toughest. Chasing the two other little ones around while your mid-section grows a bit more each day can not be easy at all. It feels almost pointless to say thanks to Sarah or actually to even ask how she is feeling. (Thank you Sarah – I’m glad that you are getting in a nap as I type this up.)
The due date is now within view and I think it makes it even harder. The anticipation of the day, the pain, and the pleasure of an ending that marks the beginning of something so incredible. Like many things in life, it really seems to build-up as “the end” gets ever closer, but this is one of the most unique and unlike anything else in life moments.
I said that I was excited about the coming year regarding Calendars.com. I am beyond ecstatic about the coming year at home. As the family is nearly grown by one, I look forward to all the changes and new things we will experience together.
Happy New Year!
