Get your pads and pens ready because it’s time for the Week In Review.
The Week In Review is a list, in its purest form, not of the things you still need to do, but of all the things you have done in the last seven days. It’s an achievement list, an ode to yourself, a celebration of sorts, and a virtual pat on the back or smack on the ass. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.

Last week was weird. It felt like there was so much going on one minute and nothing the next. I bounced around like a ping pong ball, which is par for the parenting course. I also felt hungover without the booze (or a lot of booze) due to the tiny dictator’s most recent growth spurt. She’s a vampire bleeding me dry, and I have the sore and swollen nipples to prove it. On that note…
Let’s get listing:
Last week opened with Ave having an outpatient procedure to clear a blocked tear duct on her right eye. Fasting was involved (try explaining that to a baby), along with an IV and anesthesia. Even though my mini-minion was a champ, the day was emotionally draining.
Thankfully, my mother was staying with us, which was a huge help. In fact, she stuck around until Thursday morning, which gave me plenty of time to clean her clock in Scrabble; twice. She’s going to kill me for saying that and since she’s headed back here this weekend to celebrate Ave’s birthday, I’m in trouble.
I got a new used car, and while the Hubby did 98% of the work, I had to get our finances in order so we could put money down, which is the real reason I filed our taxes early this year; yes, I consider anything before April 15th early.
The tiny dictator and I hit up our usual places: the local library for story time, the park for a literal swing, Target for essentials (washi tape counts), Whole Foods for sustenance, and grandma and grandpa’s house for monkey business.
For my solo shenanigans, I got an hour long facial, complete with a shoulder massage. This is only my second time getting one, and it felt wonderfully indulgent to pamper myself.
I also opted to spend a couple of Ave’s naps reading as opposed to doing all the things; it was magical. Granted, my house is kind of a disaster right now and I’m out of clean underwear as a result.
Actually that’s not true. I did a holy crapton of laundry last week; I just haven’t folded anything yet. Oops.
I signed up for the summer CSA program, and I added a weekly cheese order to our veggies. June can’t come soon enough.
I did a fairly decent job of keeping up with my BlogLovin’ feed and responding to emails, including some really old ones.
Oh and most importantly, I created a YouTube channel for the sole purpose of being able to share this video on the blog. Ave wanted to say Hi.
It’s your turn. I’d love to hear from you. Link up and get yo’ list on.
What are three things you accomplished in the last week? Big or small?
