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 banana shorts busy, mainly because we found out on Monday night that demo was going to start on Ave’s bathroom on Thursday morning. Gulp.
As a result, I cleaned out Ave’s bathroom. I also moved almost everything out of her bedroom and the guest bedroom because they’re both connected to that same bathroom.
I did laundry and packed: twice, because dust and debris are not great conditions for adults, much less tiny humans.
On Thursday, the wee babe and I stayed overnight with the in-laws, and today we’re headed to Buffalo to stay with my family for the entire week. Hopefully, the major messy work will be complete by the time we return.
In addition to our nomad status, we did lots of activities last week.
We sang and danced at music class and tried our hand at a new art glass.
One afternoon, we went to a three-year old birthday party complete with a sweets filled pinata. I have no pictures because I was literally stealing candy from babies. Kidding…sort of.
I got my hair cut one day and my make up done another at Lusso’s Cosmetics holiday open house.
In addition to material maintenance, we got an oil change for the car, and I managed to go swimming twice last week.
I also did some holiday shopping for myself and others. Ave tagged along on a couple of occasions. She was a fan.
We spent some time outside soaking up the last of the forty degree weather, raking up leaves, and putting up the outdoor wreaths and lights.
Since we were already in the holiday spirit, we went to Light up Lakewood and Ave got to witness her first parade and fire works display.
Continuing the traditions, we picked up and decorated our Christmas tree yesterday. The wee lass had a great time and enjoyed her peppermint hot cocoa, despite fighting off a cold. I’m sure chocolate is healing right?
Last but not least, I finished the toughest puzzle known to mankind. I’m not even exaggerating. I love puzzles, and I never want to do one this difficult again.
What are three things you accomplished in the last week? Big or small. Have you decorated for the holidays yet? What are some of your traditions?
