I read somewhere recently that some well-known blogger, I don’t remember which one, walks around all the time in constant “write post” mode, always thinking of how this event or that moment would play out in a blog entry. Do you do that, too? I do. Which might surprise you, since I seem to write so … More I’ll do the best I can
The books arrived. It’s safe to say we’ve all been in bookstores and libraries where there are lots of books. Thousands of them. Way more than 3593. But until you have 1) seen that many books come out of boxes, and 2) put that many books onto shelves, you have no idea just how many … More Pretend it is tomorrow, because I can promise you I won’t have time for blogging
In keeping with my temporary time warp, I’d like to announce that this is [my post for] Friday, November 2. Got it? Good. It has been a long, long week. We were out of town last weekend, and a certain baby I know, who usually goes to sleep by 10:30 and sleeps for 12 hours, was awake until 1 … More Fire away
On Monday my fellow media specialist* (henceforth known as MJ) and I were given the green light to order a third of the library collection planned for our new library. You know, the one at the new school, which is still a flat expanse of red mud? The one that probably won’t be ready for student … More Chicken soup for the tired, caffeine-soaked, homicidal librarian’s soul (now with additional information)
So today is my birthday. I was all excited that it fell on a Friday this year, but thus far it’s been uneventful, and parts of it have downright sucked. Consider the following: My skin is breaking out. Yes, with zits. I have not had a breakout since I got pregnant and now, today, on my birthday, … More Cars my age are considered antiques
You get sore shoulders, arms, thighs, knees, calves, and ankles, that’s what. I went back to work today. I was overheard during our initial staff meeting, which of course focuses mainly on the teaching staff, making the following announcements to anyone in my general vicinity who would listen: “I’m so glad I don’t have a … More You load sixteen tons and what do you get?
It’s that day. The last day. I don’t have to go back, ever, never, not once. I have never been so happy to see a school year end. And I have never been so tired. In. My. Life.
After a really horrible Sunday–maybe the worst day I’ve had since Mia was born–I am starting to feel like myself again. Seriously, Sunday? Have you ever felt invisible and then had your invisibility confirmed? I went out thinking being in public would energize me, and because we were out of diapers, and while I was in the … More Invisible, inconceivable, invincible
I am already flinching at my own anticipated disorganization of thoughts to follow in this post, but when there is too much to say and not enough time to say it, disorganization is to be expected. To soothe my type A anxiety I will use bullets, which will perhaps lend the appearance of organization. Humor … More Countless
I don’t think I can express in words how happy it makes me that we are down to 10. Ten days. A mere two work weeks. If this were a video blog I would share with you an interpretive dance that conveys my true feelings about this milestone. But it is not a video blog, … More Ten
