Started officially at my new branch this week. Learning the ropes of the new space and processes. Very different from larger previous branch and the much larger Main. It’s all good, though, working together to get everything done, and everyone taken care of. I like it.

Newsies was Great! The play took a different angle on a couple of the main characters, but I think it worked really well. The changes to the songs were disconcerting, but not bad. The songwriter said, in an article I Googled after watching, that he was glad to have a chance to go back and really polish them up.

Doc’s not thrilled with me still being on prednisone, so I’m onto my next step of cutting back. She’s also looking for someone for me to see about my jaw, but of course it’s been behaving these last couple days. Wants me to add Fish Oil into my supplements, too.

This week in Audio books has been short stories: Side Jobs by Jim Butcher, Call of Cthulhu and Dunwich Horror by Lovecraft. I also started into Triplanetary by E.E. Smith today, and a couple more Dresden shorts.

This week, I’m spending at the Main Library for CSS training. It has been a fairly quiet, and educational week. I’m enjoying having stairs to run up and down at work again. I really need to get more exercise. Looking forward to getting back to MLK next week, as well. This next step feels like a very good one on my path.

At Sprawl, we’re getting closer go having me cataloging in the actual library building, as well as getting a more solid plan for the public access catalog. I’m now over 1,000 books cataloged in the current collection, too.

This weekend includes a night with friends, going to see Newsies, and some puppy time.

As for audiobooks, this week I finished Redwall and Cold Days, and listened to Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly and Skin Game.

It’s my last week at Whitehall, this weekend I start at the Martin Luther King branch. Looking forward to the event this weekend, and then starting my first shift on Sunday. I get to spend the week at Main training, too, that’ll be interesting. 🙂

Tired today, so I stayed home in the afternoon. That means I have to spend all of tomorrow at Sprawl, finishing my weekly hours. Should get the current layer of the pallet finished, so just one more layer to go on this collection. Another collection is waiting. 😉

Party with fleet friends this weekend… between work shifts. Should be  a good time.

Tried a few more stories in Rogues, but couldn’t get into them. So, I started Redwall. It’s amusing, if simple. Also got through Ghost Story, now into Cold Days… and nearly done with it, actually. Skin Game up next.

Apparently more winter… we haven’t really Had winter yet… all the snow stopped at Boise, apparently. Ah well.

Looking forward to my new job starting in another week. Lots of shadowing and such at my current place so I’m as ready as I can be before formal training at the new location. One step forward on my path. 🙂

Time with friends this weekend. Should be lots of fun.

Finished First Lord’s Fury today. am halfway through Ghost Story. Started an anthology called Rogues, as well. Not sure what I think, yet. Got bored halfway through the first story. I’m downloading Redwall, as well.
