Ohai blog. Have you missed me? I’m sorry you’ve been ignored, but Summer Reading is here.
Who else is counting down days until the end of Summer Reading?
You too? Glad I’m not the only one.
And it’s not even been a busy summer. The last two summers have nearly killed me and this year, my exhaustion level is comparable to the rest of the year’s exhaustion level.
In other news, The Tiny Human starts Kindergarten in August. It does not seem possible. I don’t think I’ll cry on the first day of school, but we shall see. Supply shopping has not begun yet but the quest to find pants/shorts for a tall, scrawny little boy has commenced. If he had inherited my physique, this would not be an issue.
Oh, and I’m now a merchandiser for Chloe + Isabel. Check out my online boutique: chloeandisabel.com/boutique/librarylyssa.
How is the summer going for everyone else?
Life Outside the Library: It DOES exist!
For the past week, I’ve been at home with my son aka The Tiny Human. He had his HUGE tonsils removed and needed at least a week of R&R.
(Just want to take a quick sec to publicly apologize to The Tiny Human for the faulty genes I passed along to him that led to the latest ear tube/adenoid/tonsil fiasco. My bad son, my bad.)
Thankfully, all went well during his surgery and his recovery. Other than confirming that he has a high pain tolerance (file under good/bad), the week was fairly uneventful.
And filled with chocolate ice cream, juice, and Star Wars marathons. And the occasional “I’m tired but I don’t want to nap” meltdown.
Today’s Librarian Skill (possibly even transcending to a Life Skill):
Back Up Your Data.
I really don’t think I have to tell you why I’m sharing this little tidbit of advice.
And now if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be attempting to recreate 3 years worth of files. And eating my weight in chocolate.

I hate making New Year’s Resolutions.
I never keep them. Then, once I break them, I spend days wallowing in self-pity and failure and whatever chocolate/ice cream I can find.
The last time I made one, it lasted all of three hours and BAD life choices were made. Alas, that story is for another time (and another blog).
But I suppose I can try this resolution thing again…what’s the worst that could happen?
1.) Become organized.
2.) Eat more vegetables.
3.) Cut back on my coffee consumption (coworkers, this is your warning).
4.) Move more.
5.) Plan programs ahead of time (as is more than 3o minutes before program time).
6.) Pay off ye olde credit cards and keep them paid off.
7.) Blog at least 4 times a month.
8.) Write more book reviews on my Good Reads account.
9.) Weed all of juvenile fiction.
10.) Clean out my office….
Anyone else attempting the making and keeping of resolutions?
