February Reading Wrap Up

How is it March already? It was just March. I don't even know what I did in Feb. Not much but that's very similar to what I've been doing so I suppose no surprise there. Work has been busy, especially the last couple weeks and honestly, it's hard to remember stuff from earlier in the month. My brain basically gets to Sunday and then erases the week to make room for whatever new nonsense is coming by way. 

Last month wrap up I mentioned we converted the goblin's crib to a toddler bed. If you're wondering how that's going (and I'm sure it's been keeping you up) he stayed in that bed for all of 3 nights before deciding that was not for him but the queen bed that was also in his room would be more his speed. We finally got a railing for the bed and I mean, I can't blame him for the choice. That bed is far more comfortable, especially for all the stuffies that need to be there
No bed pic, but here he is holding court with his dinosaurs

Reading-wise I didn't do what I hoped, which was read some Black authors for Black History Month. Instead I got tired and lazy and then read a bunch of Agatha Christie instead since Christie stuff is predictable and also regularly available at the library. That and listened to a bunch of podcasts. But let's see what I did read
