So, what’s up?

Let’s talk a little about life!

Here’s what’s up: I began work on my master’s in Library and Information Science last fall.

I started my first library job this week. Today is my second day, and I’m still doing things like getting familiar with the library website and what databases they have to offer, learning where everything is in the library, how to check out books for people, and general library things. It’s been fun so far, but it’s only day 2. So Who knows. My work computer doesn’t connect to the internet yet, and it’s a windows computer, and I don’t even know if I still know how to use a non-mac computer. I’ve been a mac user for a decade.

Everyone has been so nice. The library is quiet, and in a small town. My job is going to be coming up with new adult programming – book groups and what not. I’ve been asked to try to find ways to engage younger adults as the current book groups are for blue-hairs. So, that’s exciting. I’m thinking maybe a “mom’s night out” book group, and read a book that will appeal to moms of whatever age, but probably of younger kids. Who knows. The world is apparently my oyster.

I’m enjoying the process of getting ready in the mornings, but I guess it’s going to take more than 2 days to get accustomed to doing more than just the bare minimum. Who knows how long it will take.

Last night, I drove home, about a 35 minute drive, ate some dinner that Chris brought home for me (queso!), put Jonas to bed, and then went to bed myself. My clock was cooked. I have a feeling that will be the case tonight as well, because until I am used to all of this, I don’t see much else being done at home. Oye.

Transitioning to this working and momming stuff is going well so far, except when Jonas says “It’s hard to be away from your mommy and daddy all day.” And I say “I know, but this is good for all of us.” And then he says “I’ll just have to think about the good times.” And then I have to force myself not to cry so that I don’t wash all my mascara away.

I miss kinda getting ready in the mornings. Working from home does NOT motivate me to do that, obviously. And I am still so exhausted at night I rarely do things, I have to do the “house” stuff in the morning because I’m dead at the end of the day.
