And so it begins...
I've prettied up the library--two pics of some of my display areas are in today's post---the pirate-y one here and then a books to movies one. I've catalogued what feels like a million or so books.
My summer felt really hectic, but I have to admit I am really feeling all my activities right now. I have piles of Lone Star hopefuls in my living room just waiting to be read (we use the boxes right now as our version of a baby gate--that's how many I have!) I have some book reviews to write, and some plans to make for our One Book, One School kick-off in October along with the culminating activity of a Hunger Games Day. I have Teen Read Week to prepare for--including a visit with illustrator Mike Wimmer. I have the other "hat" I wear at work--Gifted and Talented coordinator--to prepare for. Did I mention my Girl Scout troop starts meeting again this week, my older daughter's dance class starts up again tomorrow night, I have a 15 month old and a hubby in grad school? We won't go into the daily grind details that we all also share.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my job, and so it is tough for me sometimes to remember to cut myself a little slack. To be okay with not doing everything perfectly. To allow myself to be human. Like I've mentioned before I'm a work in progress. ;)
Thanks for sticking with me through the writing desert that is the beginning of a new school year. I appreciate you guys more than you know!
