The Sunday Salon March 7, 2010

Good grief, it has been a month since I wrote my last Sunday Salon post.  I really want to do better with this!  I feel like I'm full of excuses about why I can't keep up with one simple post each week.  I think my best solution is going to be to try to write this post ahead of time, maybe during my daughter's Friday nap, and then schedule it to post on Sunday.  My weekends seem to just be crazy busy and I'm not on the computer as much and definitely not getting time to write blog posts.

This past week was a rough one for me.  Mid-week I found out that the husband of a friend died.  Although I'd never met him, I know my friend considers him to be her soul-mate and my heart is breaking for her and his children.  Their love was so visible in the pictures I've seen of the two of them and I just cannot imagine the loss she is feeling right now.

My daughter has been having a rough week as well.  She is working on her bottom molars and it has thrown off everything from sleeping to eating.  My normally happy girl has been extra fussy and just unable to settle.  Of course, this means I'm running low on sleep too.  I'm working my way through The Sleep Lady's Good Night, Sleep Tight but I haven't hit the chapter on her age group yet.  I'm thinking I may need to just skip ahead to that section and then go back to read the rest later.  So far, I'm really liking the book although sometimes it seems like I did everything wrong as far as sleep was concerned during the first year.

I haven't blogged about my two most recent reads yet but I'm thinking about doing a kind of mini-review and giveaway soon.  I really enjoyed Halfway to the Grave and One Foot in the Grave by Jeaniene Frost but don't really feel like doing a complete review on them for some reason.  Maybe because I won them from drey's library instead of getting them as review books?  Or maybe I don't feel like analyzing them to figure out what exactly it is about them that I enjoyed?  Whatever the reason, I'll just be doing one mini-review of both books and then passing them along to another reader.  In the meantime, I'm waiting for At Grave's End, the third book in the Night Huntress series, to come in at the library.

In case you haven't seen it yet, check out my March giveaway.  I've got 7 books to choose from this month and entries will be accepted through March 24.
