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.

Last week was another wild one. On the plus side, we got the tiny human’s sleep sorted out. We had a serious chat about why middle of the night parties are overrated, and we swapped out her bedding for a heavier fleece blanket. Since then, it’s been pure bliss. Translation: she’s back to 11 straight hours of sleep. While I like to think our talk helped, I’m pretty sure the warmer blanket is the reason for our restful nights.
On the flip side, this happened:
Fortunately, my ankle is not broken, but it’s not pretty either. I suspect torn ligaments, but I’ll find out for sure at the ortho doc later this week. Right now, I can walk with the boot or with crutches, but not on my actual foot, which makes my mostly horizontal week no surprise.
Let’s get listing:
I did a lot of lounging, while other people entertained the tiny dictator. Thank you grandparents galore.
I easily plowed through an entire season of Orange is the New Black and made a serious dent in my latest book. Reading is fun.
I iced my ankle often, because I am a model patient and it was sore after standing on it (with the boot on) and cooking for hours. What? A girl’s gotta eat.
(Kale salad from The Root Cafe with roasted sweet potatoes, carrots, turnips, and walnuts and blue cheese.)
Speaking of food, I had a lot of take out and even indulged myself with a trip to Mad Mac’s, a restaurant devoted to mac and cheese. Be still my carb loving heart.
Despite my injury, the tiny human and I managed to sneak in a play date on Friday morning and a visit to Play Grounds Cafe on Saturday to celebrate their one year anniversary. Shenanigans and balloon animals were had by all.
I shared a recipe for the world’s easiest vegetable pot pie, which I’m already planning on remaking for dinner tonight.
Most importantly though, I finally got my City Hippie website up and running. It’s still a work in progress but you can check it out here: city-hippie.com. Feel free to buy a shitton of granola; momma’s gotta pay for physical therapy.
Now it’s your turn. I’d love to hear from you. Link up and get yo’ list on.
What did you accomplish last week? Ever tear any ligaments?
