Back to School.. or Look Ma, I’m Posting August 19, 2017

The kids are slowly trickling out of the library and back to school. Things are returning to quiet. And I’m on the hunt for my next move. Not as easy as it sounds.

Nearly done with the last (current) bit of collection three at Sprawl, then on to Glen Cook’s until the boss gets back. Massive construction on the road, and high volume at the other half of the warehouse has made it quite a month.

Eclipse on Monday, I’ll probably stay at work for our program to view it, unless I get another offer. Looking forward to another girl’s night next weekend, oil paint and all.

Finished Mocking Jay, and Fool Moon again, and now I’m listening to Mogworld by Yatzee Croshaw. Ridiculous and fun, as expected. Lots of books on hold, so luck of the draw will determine what I go on to next.

Happy All the Things! June 16, 2017

Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad! Happy Birthday, Kalyn! Happy Pride Week! And, soon, Happy Father’s Day!

It’s the busiest weekend in June for all of those I love. 🙂 And I hope everyone has a great one.

Work has been crazy, more summer fun, and YMCA visits. All the fun activities happen in the afternoons when I’m at the other job. Which has been going well. I’m only a couple boxes to go on the current pallet. Then back to the Glen Cook collection. 🙂

I’m still working my way through Name of the Wind. Next will either be one about Nikola Tesla, or Eddie Izzard.  Well, both really, but not sure which first. I’ve got another Jordan in line, too.

I’m nearly done with my Week of Work. 7 days in a row at CML – because I had my first Sunday shift and a Wednesday Training all in the same week. Weee! The training was more Welcome to CML stuff, which was pretty interesting, actually. History and statistics of CML, how we got to be one of the only urban Carnegie libraries, How we are one of the Best libraries in the US, how many people we serve, why and how we serve them. It was a good day. Today, I also finished cataloging the Robert and Juanita Coulson collection for Sprawl. Next week, I start Glen Cook’s collection. Super excited for that – there are a lot more modern books with proper ISBNs in that set (and also a good number of old things, too).

Working on a new plan to take care of myself – less sugary treats, less eating out, more exercise. Bribing myself with tiny amounts of money every day I manage these goals – to be spent on a Zag day. I’ve got lots of fruits and veggies in the fridge. Been having lots of salads and fresh meals. Summer is good for that, when I don’t want hot food so much anyway. Pasta Salad has been happening, too, with plenty of veggies.

On the book front, I finished Insurgent, and Mockingjay. Needing a break from dystopian futures, I switched over and listened to the first Kathy Reichs novel, Deja Dead. Totally not what I expected, after watching so much Bones. I also watched Maze Runner over the weekend, which was interesting, but very … I’m not sure – short? simple? It is a teen book, but I just felt like there should be more to it. I’ve got my July Audible credit now, so I’ve should decide what’s next.

Birthday weekend coming up. Cedar Point, tasty food, and hopefully Star Trek Beyond to celebrate. 🙂
