March is the insane month
Small wonder I've only managed 2 posts in March: My daughter's 9th birthday 3 weeks ago and various related festivities, her first ever piano recital 2 weeks ago, her many rehearsals leading up to this weekend's school talent show hula hoop performance, my mom's visit last weekend from NYC/Taiwan, and my annual professional performance review on March 31st to wrap it all up!
Top pic - Sabres game for daughter and husband's birthdays - and both caught on the jumbotron twice and live TV once (right after overtime winning goal)!
Bottom pic - Buffalo Museum of Science during my mom's visit. Rooftop was open with telescopes to see the SUN!
WAIT! I read a few GREAT books!!! My friend Sonya Chung (from our college years) published her first novel Long for This World on March 2, and I LOVED it!!! Intense Korean American family drama, reminded me of the novels of Barbara Kingsolver, Anne Tyler, Amy Tan, Alice Hoffman.
I read Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell - super interesting! I especially appreciated the connections to education/learning/motivation.
Currently, I'm reading The Birth Order Book - why you are the way you are by Dr. Kevin Leman. IT'S SOOOOO GOOD! Really!!! I don't know why it's taken me so long to find it. Dr. Leman explains everyone, including you and your crazy family. You'll love it, unless you're a middle child and don't like to explained, like my husband.
