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.

♫ You can do it, put your list into it. ♫
I have no idea what happened last week. I only took a handful of pictures and barely touched my planner, so my traditional memory joggers aren’t gonna help today.
I’m gonna give this the old college try, minus the all nighters, the booze and the post carb consumption, unless of course you count Friday night’s sleep over in Ave’s room and subsequent Halloween candy binge.
My name is Meghan, and I like to eat my feelings and drink copious amounts of coffee, or ‘caulkie’ as Ave calls it.
Let’s get listing:
The Hubby had Tuesday off, so we took Ave to a farm complete with slides, pumpkins, hay bales, corn mazes, live animals and plenty of photo ops.
On Thursday, we hit up Baby and Me story time, and the day before we checked out a new library with a ginormous kids section. Ave was obsessed with the train, and she might have snatched a railroad car from another baby. Yes, I made her give it back.
We also scoped out a new music class, complete with scarfs, shakers and ribbons. I didn’t get a single picture because Ave spent 99% of the class curled up in my lap, with her rattle in one hand and her thumb planted firmly in her mouth. After each song was complete, she would stand up and clap and then plop back into my lap.
We ran errands. Lots and lots of errands. We went to Breadsmith multiple times, Target twice, a couple of different grocery stores, the pet store and the playroom at the gym.
I put on my MacGyver hat and fixed Ave’s music mobile which hasn’t worked in months. Apparently, it required a fresh set of batteries.
I did a little bit of blog writing for posts that are still in progress, although I spent the majority of my free time snuggling up with Samantha, my cat who’s been sick; the vet suspects cancer. If they’re right, it’s just a matter of time. Sigh.
On Saturday, the whole family went to a 40th birthday party for a close friend. I was in charge of the fruit and cheese board, and I took my job seriously.
I also made candied walnuts for the occasion.
On Sunday, I made a crockpot full of vegetarian chili, picked up Ave’s Halloween costume, hung with the kiddo at the library and wrote this blog post.
Oh and one more thing: the Hubby and I finally finished watching The Wire. I loved the entire series and can see why it’s so highly recommended.
Now 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. What’s one of your favorite television series? Do you have trouble remembering what you did last week?
