Summer Reading, Shiny Things, and Other (mis)Advtures

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:


How is the summer going for everyone else?


Life Outside the Library: A Week Home with The Tiny Human

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.

Back to Library Life

After nearly two weeks off, I’m back at the library!

I should add that I’m the genius who scheduled her first day back at work on a Saturday when upgrades are being done to the circulation system.  So far, all is quiet on the circ desk front.

I hope everyone has had a lovely holiday season.  The Tiny Human and I had a great Christmas.  Santa brought exactly what Atticus wanted….

And now, back to work!
