Week 456

Week 456 I am tired of this. Can that be all I write? Just kidding, you know I always find something to say.  I have not started journaling yet, but plan to this next week.  I will be sharing it on my personal page and when I get to work today I am creating...

This is how it feels

This is how it feels Monday I was on fire, I shopped for groceries and cleaned the house.  I felt ah-mazing!  Tuesday I was sad and found it hard to do anything.  Wednesday I woke up early and made our 4th closure protocol document, figured out Zoom and...

How are you doing?

Taste Test

Taste Test I pretty much love food, and I am not picky.  I used to be picky, wish I still was, it might be easier to not gain weight if I could say no to most things.  As I got older I became okay with my food touching and finally stopped special ordering no...

Stats or More Grouchiness

Stats or More Grouchiness The last 2 weeks of writing were easy.  Just share what my staff does, the hardest part being to include everything without filling the whole newspaper.  Today I struggle with sharing stats or being grouchy again.  The grouchiness thing is...

My Staff Round #2

My Staff Round #2 This bookworm is a continuation of last week, so if you have not read that one, make sure you do.  I am sharing the tasks of my staff and basically what a day in the life of a librarian looks like.  I have 7 staff members and discussed 4 of...
