Spring sprang this week, and the weather is slowly catching up. Supposed to be very nice tomorrow. 🙂 Looking forward to warmer weather and flowering things.

Good times with friends over the weekend, even more than expected, but a bit less sleep than I hoped for, as usual. Watched Miss Peregrine’s Home for Unusual Children. It wasn’t quite what I expected, but was still quite good. For cheesy sake, I’m also watching The Librarian trilogy this week. I have also started Dune, but haven’t gotten terribly far, much more time tomorrow to listen.

Looking forward to a busy May, but things are pretty quiet and stable for now. Work is going along nicely. I had the meeting this week to plan for the archival project at MLK. Next step: inventory and discarding or re-homing some non-relevant materials. It’ll be a nice project.

Tonight’s cooking experiment: Garlic and Thyme Roasted Carrots.

Didn’t use a planner for my summer classes, but had to break down and get one for the fall semester. I was just getting confused because my classes are so similar. It’s all in the book now, and sorted out. Lots of work to do, and one very unfortunately timed final project. But, it should work out alright. The other final project is timed excellently, giving me two weeks with nothing but it to work on, owing to the fact that the class ends the week after Thanksgiving. The projects for both look pretty awesome, so it should be good.

Pharmacy frustrations galore. I know it’s my fault for not ordering refills ahead of time, but three days running they keep telling me “maybe we’ll have it tomorrow.” Though today’s added bonus was being confusing and telling me they were going to call my doctor, as though to switch my script to something else. No, thanks, I don’t want something else, I want the drugs that I’m taking and that are working. I don’t care if you have to call another distributor, that’s not my business, do what you have to do, just get the medications, or I’ll go somewhere else, thank you. So, I haven’t had my meds all week other than Naproxen. I slept for four hours when I got home yesterday, was up for about four, and then slept hard all night.

Anybody need a job? Anybody that will actually show up and not quit after a couple weeks? We’ve got a lot of positions open if you’re willing to work retail with cafe. Manager on down. Full and part time. And soon, we’ll be doing seasonal hiring, too. Wee fun.  On a related note, anyone need a half-way-through-my-degree librarian? 😉

The apartment is nearly unpacked. The gaming book is getting closer to print. I’ve almost got the information I need to fix the website. My birthday is just over a week away. I’m on book five of seven. And the possibility of being a librarian that I thought was completely shot, has a dim light reappearing. Things are moving along nicely.

Pictures of the apartment:

The living room.

The back of the living room, note how the bookcases are accessible. 😉
And the desks fill out the wall to the left.

And our library upstairs, soon to have a papasan for more comfortable curling up.

Life is good and another cookout with friends this weekend to boot. 🙂
