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.

Let’s get listing:
Last week was bananas and here’s why:
Ave is transitioning from two to one nap a day, which basically means nap time has become a battle ground with the tiny dictator dominating. As such, I’ve spent more hours than I care to admit driving her around in the car so she can catch some zzz’s. We’ve also had lots of late night/middle of the night parties. Sigh.
Translation: I’ve barely touched my computer, much less the blog and showers have gone by the wayside. Hygiene, schmiegene.
On the plus side, my mom was in town over the weekend and she brought me ramps, so between my unwashed flesh and those glorious garlicky greens, my house smells lovely. Cough, cough.
Another positive, Ave had a friend in town at the beginning of the week. Danielle and Lulu (Belle) came all the way up from Texas to visit, and it was lovely. We hit up the park, the Cleveland Zoo (on free Monday….never again, it was a total zoo, pun intended), and ate all the Indian food.
Ave went to grandma and grandpa’s house on Thursday for six solid hours. This is the longest we’ve ever been separated, and it was really good for both of us. We’ve got some co-dependent issues. We’re working on ’em though. Baby steps.
I’d love to tell you I spent those hours relaxing and pampering myself, but not so much. I hit up the grocery store, the bank, the post office, the gas station, the UPS store, and our local nursery for flowers. I also did some light cleaning and folded the mountain of clean clothes we had accumulated in the guest bedroom.
The other fairly huge thing that happened was we hosted twenty people for Easter dinner. It was a ton of work and worth it. It was great spending time with family and it felt fantastic to get back in the kitchen again.
You know I had to end with the tiny human.
On that note, 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?
