TSS: March 2013 Recap

The Sunday Salon.com

Happy Easter. It’s time to recap March!


In March, I read 7 books:

  1. Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi  (audio) 4 stars
  2. For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Petrefreund (ebook) 4.5 stars
  3. Being There by Jerzy Kazinsky (audio) 3 stars
  4. The Tao of Pooh by Benjamin Hoff (audio) 3.5 stars
  5. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl (print) 4 stars
  6. Live by Night by Dennis Lehane (print) 2.5 stars
  7. Among the Mad by Jacquline Winspear (audio) 4.5 stars

My favorite of the month is For Darkness Shows the Stars.

I also reviewed An Incomplete Revenge; Level 2; The Emerald Atlas and shared a few photo posts: a day at the beach and our trip to Savannah. I confessed that I struggle to find ways to read with Evan. Finally, I guest blogged over at Liberating Working Moms about giving up control.


Illness and house guests led to very little dancing and absolutely no running in March. But I WILL start running this week. I swear. I’ve got a FitBit bet to win.


Evan is ten months old and I am already planning his birthday party. Where does the time go? He is thisclose to walking, cruising around the furniture like a champ. He’s eating everything we put in front of him and still just a generally happy baby. I just need him to start sleeping through the night. I guess I thought that would happen by now. But here I am, still up twice a night with him. Oh well. I’ll sleep someday.

On the breastfeeding front, things have changed a bit. I gave in to Evan’s refusal of breastmilk in a bottle so he only gets formula when I’m away during the day. And just this last week, I gave up pumping completely. Freedom! I am still nursing him 3-4 times per day/night and I hope to keep morning/night/weekend nursing as much as I can.

Evan is still a joy to be around.

How did March treat you?

    Frankly I’m glad March is done. The last couple months have been a slog but spring is here, Lent is done so I can drink, and we are planning our summer so things are looking up. I’m really curious about Being There. Obviously it wasn’t a home run if you gave it 3 stars, but I love that movie. Hope you and your family have a blessed Easter!

    Evan’s Easter Basket is adorable! It looks like you had a good reading month, too. I’ve seen the Jaqueline Winspear books around a lot lately and I’ve been thinking about starting the series.

    What a beautiful boy! My baby turned 10 months last week – where has the time gone? Congrats on the breastfeeding. Nathaniel isn’t really into nursing anymore – I am lucky if I can get him to do it 2x/day. Lots of formula!
