*WHEW*. Ok, so..... I do realize that a kinda left you hanging on my last post~ which by the way, seems like forever ago! I'm sorry about that. Where do I begin? This may seem quite silly to some, but I have been lucky enough to get my "dream job" back!!!!! Yes, back. A few years ago, I was employed at our local public library. I made an extremely hasty and poor decision and left my job for reasons that were extremely petty. I have regretted that decision ever since. I recently, stumbled across the chance to reapply~ all in thanks to my wonderful friends and co-workers for putting a bug in our new director's ear. :) I interviewed, was hired and started working there again last week. I am absolutely on cloud nine! I was a bit nervous coming back into the atmosphere knowing that I would need a refresher course... well, that took about 10 minutes!! It was like hopping back on a bike again, it all came right back! With the exception of a few computer changes, it worked out beautifully. I am familiar with the services and systems offered at our library, so there was really no training involved. YIPPEE! Again, I could not be happier and I am so very grateful for the opportunity to serve the community again! Thank you to everyone that put in such a good word for me! For those of you that already do know me, yep, I'm still at Lopez....... I'm working six days a week and splitting shifts between jobs. Normally, I would dread the thought of that, but I really am very content doing this. I love the library with a passion~ it is such a rewarding and fulfilling job for me. I love to help people and deal with the public. Crazy? Maybe..... but, I think I'm pretty good at it. I don't mind working my butt off when it comes to doing the things I love.
The kids are doing great! Poor Beth is being very patient with my new schedule, shuffling alot more and running around like crazy people but we're doing good! She has her Homecoming dance this Saturday nite, she's really looking forward to it. We already got her dress and shoes, she's good to go! Spirit week here we come! Brendan is working his tail off and commuting back and forth~ he loves the weekends as much as the next person! They (he and his girlfriend, Katie) are down to one car and both work hard at the whole carpooling thing. They are enjoying the new place though and live in such an artsy~fartsy college town! KU campus is just out the back door! He loves that town!
Oscar (Cory's business partner) is flying in on Saturday, art class on Monday, AND.... more news, the Director and Young Adult librarian have asked me to hold altered art classes at the library bi-monthly for our YA patrons!!!!!!!! These will start on October 14th! I am very excited about all of these new developments~ my life finally seems to be in order! Next, I'll be getting some Christmas projects done a bit early......hopefully! I really have to budget my time better now, I must admit, I have neglected, but checked the blog and FB every nite, just haven't taken the time to get involved the past few days!
*Whew*.......... alot to catch up on, and no pics but I'll get around to those, I promise! Hugs to all and thanks for putting up with me.............. and my absence! :)))))))
