Sunday Mise en Place (Apr. 17 to 23, ‘017)

I hope you had a great week, welcome back to the Sunday Mise en Place.  The longest, most consistent series on the G.O.B. where I talk about blogging, writing, and life.  More honestly, it’s a weekly post where I can keep track of the blog posts, document and share a bit about my world and give hints as to what is coming.  And there is things coming.  Starting with next weekend, when I will post the Mise en Place with my Calgary Comic Expo experience live (By live I mean I will be writing at the expo about all of the rad-ness I come across.).  As for this week, let’s have a look at what’s going on…

What’s Going On-

Mama’s home!  After her wonderful trip to Vancouver Island, Jenn came home in the middle of the night on Tuesday.  My weeklong gauntlet and taste of single parenting two small children, came to an end.  Then the kids went back to school first thing in the morning, after Easter break, and I didn’t need the help anymore…  But she’s home, the family is together, and everyone is happy.

Been diving into this new project the last couple weeks, and I am super excited about it.  Working along side one of my closest friends who is trained and experienced in broadcasting.  I am pleased to announce we are working on our own podcast.  I’ll keep most the details close to the chest, and we are intent on finishing the season before releasing anything.  But it’s a fun, new experience, I am glad to share that excitement with you and will share updates as they come.

Other than that, the weeks been full of ups and downs.  We received some unexpected money, and that was nice to catch up on some of the lingering bills and get the kids some summer clothes.  Then my precious Calgary Flames were defeated out of the playoffs, in devastating fashion.  Just an example of the highs and lows that have defined this past week.  But, it was a fun week in blogging…

Last Weeks Posts-

  • I went inside Rob’s Side of the Laundry Room and got the opportunity to talk about My Most Elusive 80’s Toys.  While you’re over there you should check out My Side of the Laundry Room’s new youtube video.   Thanks Rob for having me inside you- er, you know what I mean…


As I mentioned earlier, next weekend is the Calgary Comics and Entertainment Expo.  I don’t have that elusive media pass I was hoping for but I am going to have the best time I possibly can.  We are coming to the end of April, which means it is time to take a look ahead to March and all of the exciting movies on their way.  And I will get a review in at some point this week, I haven’t done a graphic novel review in a while…

Thanks booknerds, hope you have great weather and pizza at least once this week.
