Did a better job of time-management this week, so I’m actually posting on Thursday. Good job, me.

Not much going on, though. Reported my weekend when I posted on Sunday. Final week of the Summer Reading Club, for the procrastinators. Raffle prizes being picked up. I’ve still got most of my coupons to use. Some of my coworkers are planning a boardgame night sometime.

I’m alone at Sprawl this month. Going through the last few totes of random things, then a couple boxes. I’ve got all of the Glen Cook collection to go through when I’m done.

I finished The Gathering Storm, and now I’m listening to Mockingjay while I wait for my holds to come through.

Late… Again… August 6, 2017

Sorry folks, I know a bunch of you looked for this a few days ago… I need to sort out this exhaustion. It’s not like I didn’t have time, I just used it to potato.

In that vein, I have started watching Supernatural… which then requires me to watch West Wing before I sleep, though not all the episodes freak me out, they’re getting less creepy, though I’m sure it’s just a phase. ๐Ÿ˜‰

On the work front, it feels like half the staff was out almost every day this week. So, it was a very busy, strange week. Thank you volunteens and interns for stepping up and helping out. They had their big party this past Friday, too.

So, that means summer is almost over, our reading program is done-ish (one more week to pick up prizes, though no more sign ups). The YMCA, I believe has two more weeks, but our summertime story times are done, and we have a two week break before the schooltime story times begin. One more week of lunches, before we take a short break before schoolday snacks resume, I believe. And it’s time for me to look for my next career step. One more week before I can apply within CML, and I’m scouring the surrounding areas, as well.

I learned to play the Harry Potter:Hogwarts Battle card-building game yesterday, as well as Xia: Legends of Drift ย with the Embers of a Forsaken Star expansion. Which I’m told makes it very different, though I never played without it, so I’ll have to take their word for it.

On the reading front, I’m pushing my way through Wheel of Time again, I’ve re-borrowed The Gathering Storm on Overdrive. I’ve also downloaded the new Libby app, and have a few holds waiting there, to see if I like it better. So far, I’ve had trouble finding my hold/loan shelf, but only until I figured it out. It’s rather simple, it was just too simple for someone used to menus.

Late post, as is usual lately. Stayed in Thursday with major headache to go with the massive storms and flooding. Worked a day yesterday, but home sick again today with a mild fever. Bleh.

In other news, finishing up the last few totes of current collection 3… until he gets more. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Library’s having some good programs with the kids. Lots of participation in SRC.

I finished Aeronaut’s Windlass, but waiting on holds for my next book. Trying to finish Jordan/Sanderson. Lots of series going, just gotta finish them up.

Forgot to post last week, because I was At MarCon. Thursday was setup and welcome party. Friday I worked all day, and got back in time for dinner, crew meeting, and our first public party. Saturday was a bit more relaxed. I got to play Battletech and have more tasty foods, before crew meeting and the big public party. Sunday was tear down and move out, and our dead dog, where I got to play Zombicide and Jackbox quiz games. And back to work on Monday.

I hope all the Mom’s had a great Mother’s Day on Sunday.

This week starts into Summer Games prep, so I spent four hours typing up dogtags last night. (Thus the post today instead of last night.) I won’t have internet connection next Thursday either, but I’ll TRY to remember to prepare a post ahead of time.

Work is going well. I’m getting a bunch of time to work on my project in the next two weeks for MLK. And then we start Summer Reading Club. Which has gone Digital this year.

Finished Lies of Locke Lamora, and got through Stardust. The audiobook is cool because it even has an interview with Gaiman. Then I listened to The Gathering Storm by Robert Jordan/Brandon Sanderson. Now, I’m listening to Leviathan Awakes by Corey, because The Expanse is a great show.
