Happy National Library Week!!

I love unicorns soooo much it is ridiculous. The kids at the library are always making me unicorn drawings for me to put by my desk (they think I have an office, I guess?). 
I have day #4 as a teen librarian under my belt. 
This week was chaos but I learned so much. 
I feel tired. I know my house is a hot mess. But I also know that things will settle down soon. And I have a gazillion million ideas of things I want to implement for the teens and the community. I have been mentally reminding myself to pace myself! I sat down after work and reflected on everything that I did this week and wowee, was it a lot! This weekend I am going to recoup. Oh, and totally clean my house!

The New Girl

I am up at near 3am. Not unusual for me, but today I start my new role as the Teen Services Librarian at the same library I have been employed at. I am excited and I guess I have a bit of that night before back to school teacher anxiety going on. I just want to do a good job. Sometimes I am really hard on myself. Then I look at this drawing of a bee and it reminds me that according to science, bees aren't supposed to fly but they do anyway. And so I try again!
I love bees so much.

April is for Fools!

I'm totally in!

I cannot believe that it is already April. Why is this year going by so fast? Someone told me the other day that they read research that when we are young time goes by slow because we process slower, but it goes fast because as adults our brain is more developed and processes time faster. Probably true!

So here in Oklahoma these Bradford Pear Trees are totally kickin' my bottom. My nostrils actually swelled up! And my eyes are always burning. I have to use Restasis and that still feels like it is not helping much at the moment. I probably live in a bad state for allergies. And of course, severe weather is headed our way this week. Thankfully, the spiders have been cleared out of the tornado shelter!

I am so excited because in April I start my new position at the same library, as the Teen Services Librarian!!! I am a little nervous but absolutely ready to give it my all. I have some great encouragers where I work, too, so that helps. I never thought I would be starting a new career near mid-life, but here I am.

Hey, thinking of severe weather reminds me that my nickname growing up was Tornado!
Here's some throwback pics of the Tornado!
