Get you 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.
Need more details? Head here.
♫ You can do it, put your list into it. ♫
Let’s get listing:
It feels like it’s been weeks since I’ve written a blog post….oh wait, it has.
Confession: I thoroughly enjoyed the down time and barely turned on my computer. In fact, I’m kind of struggling with the idea of penning a post, so I’ll stick with a short blurb instead. Or maybe I should say shortish; this is me after all.
Suffice to say, Christmas happened. It was magical and fraught with family, frightening driving conditions and four foot furry elephants, who almost rode shotgun while we traversed the wintery terrain.
(At one point, I drove off the highway to avoid the car spinning out in front of me, narrowly avoided the reflector stick barely showing, and quickly bounced back onto the highway and continued as if nothing had happened.)
New Years Eve was lovely and included hooker heels and a tasty meal out with the Hubby before curling up into bed at 11 p.m. I’d rather sleep than watch Ryan Seacrest.
Since then it’s been bloody cold and blustery here. We’re talking wind chill warnings and near negative temps. As such, I did a 2,000 piece puzzle to pass the time. I finished it in 5 days so I think I deserve a medal or at the very least a cookie. I read a handful of books, I plowed through the first season of Stranger Things, and after weeks off, I busted out my 2018 planner. It feels good to cut into some washi tape.
As far as the tiny dictator goes, there were play dates, pizza, prancing, and even some pouting. I legit caught her practicing her fake cry in the mirror. Clearly, Ave is too smart for her own good.
We did lots of shopping (which is my code phrase for running errands: hello Whole Foods, Breadsmith and Target), we went to the science center, barrelled through balls, watched The Sound of Music, played with all of her new toys over and over and over again. Oh and we went bike riding, through the house that is.
Last but certainly not least, we did a lot of this.
(Ahhhh, the life of a stay at home mother.)
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 more trying driving stories?
