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:
I started the week off in Buffalo with more family fun and lots of fantastic food.
We had brunch with my older brother, and Ave got to engage in some selfie shenanigans. We followed that up with a pizza dinner with my younger brother and niece. No one left hungry.
On Tuesday, Ave, my mother and I drove back to Cleveland, roughly a three hour road trip. Ave took a short cat nap and then watched a lot of Elmo. By the time we got back home, the baby was spent and we almost cancelled trick or treating; almost. We hit up four houses and my mini-minion managed to cry at each one. She makes the cutest little sheep though.
The Hubby and I had a lunch date on Wednesday and picked out new tile for our guest bathroom. I’m hopeful one day we’ll no longer have a giant hole in the wall and exposed plumbing.
One morning, we hit up the local coffee shop/play area with friends. Another day, we went to story time at the library, our last class until 2018. Thankfully, we’re starting a music session this week.
Ave spent some quality time with my mother while I caught up on blog reading, my e-mail, finances and responded to blog comments.
For kicks, I read a book (The Hate U Bring by Angie Thomas (it was powerful and appropriate given our current climate)), I watched a handful of movies (The Dressmaker and The Insider (I was a fan of both)) and I started a puzzle. Oh and I ordered more take out because food. Self care for the win.
We hit up the in-laws house to celebrate grandma’s birthday. It was a success, ignoring the fact we forgot the vast majority of her presents. Oops. I’d blame Ave, but she was the one who managed to carry the one gift we did bring.
I spent the better part of Saturday catching up on sleep while the Hubby managed the tiny dictator. He’s my hero.
On Sunday, I swam just a little over a half mile. It was my first dip in the pool since the middle of September, and it felt like it.
I saved the best for last. The most exciting thing last week was poop. Yes, poop. At just shy of 19 months, this is kind of a miracle. Go Ave, go.
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. Did you remember potty training your little ones? Are you team pizza or chicken wings?
