TSS: June in Review

It’s hard to believe the year is half over and it’s time to wrap up June. Well, I’m a day early. But I won’t finish a book by tomorrow. So here I am.


YOU GUYS. I had my best reading month all year! I finished 5 books and it was amazing. I am sticking with YA for awhile to keep this up.

  • The One by Kiera Cass
  • Siren’s Song by Heather McCollum
  • This Side of Salvation by Jeri Smith-Ready
  • Hemingway’s Girl by Erika Roburn
  • The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wicker

Look for those reviews soon…

I also reviewed:

And shared:


I am actually going for a run this morning. A real, legit run. I got injured in early April so it’s been nearly 3 months since I’ve gone on one. And I have suffered for it. But I’m excited to hit the pavement again. Despite the humidity and heat.

I tried to do that ab challenge in June that everyone was doing – and I made it much further than everyone else I knew – but I gave up around Day 22. It just got too hard. Thinking about doing a yoga challenge in July to stay active while I can’t actually get to the gym or dance class.


Evan is a handful. Ben left and he seems to be pretty terrified that I am also going to leave. Other than daycare (where he has always been comfortable with me dropping him off), he barely lets me leave the room. Ben’s sister is here this weekend helping me out (she was getting me ice cream as I typed this), which is great, we’re going to see Ben next weekend in Minnesota for a wedding (where I plan on promptly handing Evan over to someone and then running away), my mom will be here the weekend after that, then just one more weekend on my own before we head to New Mexico for Ben’s graduation. I can do that. Right?

    You can do it!! I think Evan is just at that age that he notices when someone is gone from his daily routine. I’m sure it’s tough on you. I applaud all the things you have been able to accomplish with Ben gone. I was never a mom with just one little one since my first were twins and when Kevin had to travel for part of a week or a full week I was crazy busy and exhausted!
    Congrats on your reading month!

    I remember those single parent days or weekends. My Evan didn’t seem to care who was home with him, but I turned into a complete dope when the hub left for a weekend trip or the dreaded lake trip with his family of guys. Simple things became difficult when you had to do them totally on your own. Didn’t matter that I lived on my own before getting married and had absolutely not problem with any of it but man.. even if the sprinkler popped off I got all stressed out over it.

    I can relate.

    I can’t believe that we are already in July! I swear I was just thinking about the end of the school year…

    I’m excited to read your thoughts on The Golem and the Jinni and Hemingway’s Girl. 🙂
