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.

My title makes me sound like a hard core fitness blogger, ready to tackle the topic of adrenal fatigue while simultaneously downing my protein powder packed recovery shakes, when the simple truth is I’m an introvert and I needed some time to recharge my batteries after having company and celebrating Ave’s birthday the week prior. Oh and and the repair business…yeah, that was home improvement projects.
Let’s get listing:
I watched soooooo many episodes of Outlander, even when Ave was napping which is the holy grail of get shit done time. It was decadent and lovely.
I exercised a boatload (spinning, running, and weights, oh my!) and I binge read the book Rash: A Memoir by Lisa Kusel. It’s what Eat, Pray, Love would have been if I had embarked on a spiritual journey. Centered in Bali, Lisa finds massive amounts of mold, scary sponge hygiene, and spats with a spouse when tropical paradise doesn’t turn out as expected. It was a fast and fabulous read. I highly recommend it.
I had my annual gynecologist appointment. In typical doctor fashion, I waited almost an hour to have my nether regions probed, when I should have stayed home and let the Hubby handle it. He’s much more efficient.
Speaking of the man, we went out for lunch one day. I hoovered down a salad, which wasn’t nearly as good as my own.
As for the kiddo, we soaked up the sun and frolicked with the flowers whenever the weather was warm enough to allow it.
And when it wasn’t, we got fancy with a fire and spirits, the drinkable kind, not the poltergeist stuff.
When I wasn’t relaxing and recovering, I was repairing the house. I used the cordless screw driver to fix some drapery hooks with molleys, and I made a wood epoxy and spackled it on some bad patches on the back porch. Next up, only a thousand little things. Move over Tim Allen.
The highlight of my week though was attending The Chef’s Fantasy dinner on Saturday night with this lovely lady. We got a night off from momming complete with tasty vittles, more cocktails than was appropriate and a chance to pee in private. It was everything.
Now it’s your turn. I’d love to hear from you. Link up and get yo’ list on.
What is something you accomplished in the last week? Big or small. Do you do repairs around the home?
