In January, I read 4 books: one print and three audio. But this is somewhat misleading as I finished two books on January 1 that I had been reading for awhile. So this was really a pretty awful reading month for me. Life felt extra busy and I’m not convinced there has been a single day that my entire family was healthy since Thanksgiving. So my reading has suffered.
The books I finished in January:
- Parasite by Mira Grant
- Fun Home by Alison Bechdel
- The Dangerous Animals Club by Stephen Tobolowsky
- The Circle by Dave Eggers (review coming soon)
I’ve kept up with blogging at least.
- Where the Stars Still Shine by Trish Doller
- Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers
- Night Film by Marisha Pessl
- The Madness Underneath by Maureen Johnson
- Beyond Snapshots by Rachel Devine and Peeta Mazey
Now, at some point I will theoretically need to read more to have something to blog about. But we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it. I have enough content for two reviews a week for a little while still. I’ve stuck with my new blogging plan pretty well (although I keep forgetting about the health posts on Fridays).
I also shared four Wordless Wednesday posts:
- Evan Plays at the Park; I Play with my Camera
- 9 Days of Instagram
- Christmas in January
- Toys, Toys, Toys
and mentioned my new photography toys.
I wrote about my 2014 goals; becoming a runner again and accepting myself and the positive changes I’ve made, even if I’m not to my goal yet. I went for 11 runs in January, two yoga classes (falling a little shy of my goal there), and two dance classes. Despite the germs invading our home, I finally feel like I’m getting somewhere with running and I am looking forward to my first 8k later this month.
Evan is 20 months old now. He’s speaking in phrases and telling me what he thinks of the world. It’s amazing. I wrote about the bittersweet end of our breastfeeding relationship (which I am very much regretting after this winter’s germ invasion) earlier this month.
PS – Sorry for the lack of pictures on this post. I am having some technical difficulties with my new photo organization. I will try to have it figured out for next month.
Yeah, I have to say the sick days in your house must be getting overwhelming. No wonder you had a slow month. I really hope there is a break in those soon!
Oh man, I hear you about the sick thing. We just spent a lovely weekend in the pediatric wing of our local hospital. I don’t want to o anything, ever again…
