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 tough for a variety of reasons.
Ave is still partying in the middle of the night or starting most days before the crack of dawn (hello 5:15 a.m.) which is mildly irritating and absolutely exhausting. My main source of fatigue though is the current political climate. I don’t want to get into it here though.
Last week wasn’t all sleepless nights and intolerance which is why today I’m focusing on the fun stuff.
Let’s get listing:
The Hubby, my partner in crime, is still recuperating from knee surgery so he was home with Ave and I all week. Tackling a toddler and random sleep breaks is so much better when there’s two of you.
As a result, I napped like a boss, especially on mornings where my nap started at 7 a.m..
Ave and I or she and the Hubby hit up the local park almost every single morning. Sometimes we went down by the water to explore and other times, we visited the playground, where we got to practice our ninja warrior climbing skills.
We also played with the next door neighbor’s dog most days, who is sweetly protective of Ave. He even scared off a little old lady who wanted to say hi.
One day, we engaged in backyard pool shenanigans which led to naked gardening, peeing in the driveway and unsuccessfully attempting to play in the self created puddle.
We all adulted. We paid bills, sent off packages, folded laundry, cleaned and vacuumed. Ave’s favorite is the latter. She’s practically a pro; one day we might even turn it on.
For me personally, I finished the book, Lucky Boy by Shanthi Sekaran. It was a fantastic, yet heartbreaking read that couldn’t/shouldn’t have ended any other way.
I got a relaxation massage.
I penned a post on the joys or really the hijinks that come with nursing a toddler. I submitted that same post to Scary Mommy, so cross your fingers for me.
I got frisky with my peaches.
I caught up with an old and dear friend on Saturday.
I joined another for a pool party on Sunday.
I ate my weight in tomatoes.
I did a second round of recipe testing for my wedge salad using grilled cabbage.
What are three things you accomplished in the last week? Big or small.
