Checking the List

Found a sitter? Yes, two

Have a ride? Yes

Food for the family? Taken care of

I guess I’m ready.  Do not get worried if I don’t check in on Wednesday or Thursday.  There, look at my ego grow, assuming those of you who wander by are that invested in my well being.  There is an Invader Zim cartoon where Zim says “More organs means more human.”  I suppose by Wednesday afternoon, I’ll be a little less human.

Wait, I just thought of something.  I am completely out of books; this will not do.  No, not at all.  Am I the only one who is embarrassed to go back to the library after amassing a fee?  As if somehow I am unworthy to return to the library for misplacing a book for a week.  It’s probably a symptom of my own twisted neurosis, but I build all of these little incidents into these overwhelming tasks and put them off.  Eventually when I get around to finding the courage, time, and energy I wonder how I could have built it into such an overwhelming task.

I hope my fear of interviewing is like this.  I sent out a press release to the local morning shows.  Maybe something will come of it, maybe nothing will.  It’d be nice if we could promote Home Ec in that manner.

Here’s hoping it’s as little of an ordeal as possible! Come back to us soon!

hope everything goes smoothly and uneventfully. I’ll try to fill in with a few roundups while you’re out

I’ll keep you in my thoughts. Hope all goes well. We are concerned for your well being!

Thanks guys, I was kind of joking about blogger conceit. I just read some goofy article and it put me in an odd mood.

Eugene, that is really helpful and appreciated.

Nothing but good thoughts sent your way. Now, go get your books!

Best wishes for a speedy recovery!

To help assuage your anxiety about the overdue library books…

I’m a librarian, and would be willing to bet that any staff member you encounter, in any library, on any given day, has at least as many overdues as you have. We’re notoriously bad, and in no position to judge. Keep your chin up.

Theres a library in VA that I returned a book to late and then moved, never paying the fee. I can never go back! lol
Good luck with the surgery today! You will be back on your feet before you know it so enjoy the break lol

I’m debating about calling you. I DO NOT want to wake you or baby Heather. No news is good news I suppose. I need to check on Ashley. I just remembered.

#11 Rachel on 02.13.08 at 10:30 pm

Hon, I was recently barred (meaning no check-outs allowed, no exceptions) from the library system *in which I work* for an unpaid fine. Go get some library books.

PS-I paid the fine and all is now right in the world. Hope you recover swiftly and easily.
