Getting back to it

   Hey all. Made it through yesterday and today, though I didn't know if I was gonna. My little princess has been a total terrible two the last couple of days. Yesterday afternoon she had a total breakdown. I was able to calm her down and she was just fine for a couple of hours. Then about a 1/2 hour before bedtime, I tried to put her jammies on her and she lost it! Screamed, cried, kicked, hit...the whole 9 yards. I tried to calm her down at first and then just backed off and tried to let it run its course. After a while, she came to me, head hanging and said she wanted to snuggle. I picked her up, we sat down and she proceeded to throw up all over me. Nice. She worked herself into such a tizzy she made herself sick. But we now know that barfing will calm her down. Not a peep out of her after that. Not sure that it was worth it, though!

   Monday was Columbus Day here in the US (hey, it's possible I could have some international blog followers..Haha!). The library was closed to the public, but we had Staff Development Day, which we do every year. It's a nice break from our everyday work, and we get to see staff from the other branches that we don't see that often, but talk to on the phone all the time, so that was nice. We do training stuff and motivational stuff and this year we got trained on using a fire extinguisher. Though I have them, I've never actually USED one, thank goodness. So it was interesting to actually use one. And we had fun cheering on our fellow staff when they used it, too.

   Speaking of work, it's starting to get crazy busy. The end of our fiscal year is coming up, so the branches are using all of the money they've socked away throughout the year. It's a "use it or lose it" situation, so they of course are going to use it. So we have books coming out the wazoo right now. Makes for very busy, fast favorite kind! Plus I LOVE seeing a the new books. I really try not to look through them, and I usually do really good, but when I see, say, a picture book that I think Maylee would like, or I see a book from a favorite author, I can't help but look through it. Love me some books!

    Not sure if I've talked about the new TV season yet. Let's see, the new shows we've started to watch are Mike & Molly, Nikita, Raising Hope, and The Event (I feel like I'm forgetting one). We have all of The Undercovers recorded, but haven't watched them yet. I don't know if we'll ever get around to watching them, either, unless someone gives me a glowing recommendation of the show. And old shows...Grey's Anatomy has been great, Glee's been great, Modern Family, which is my new favorite show, didn't start out great, but has gotten better each episode. We love House, but have yet to watch one new episode--we're 4 behind! Chuck, which is one of our favorites, has been great. It doesn't get great rating, which surprised the heck out of me because it's a funny, dramatic and heartfelt show. Mythbusters, which has been a favorite for years, just started up with new episodes, also.I love Project Runway, and it's winding down. Only like 3 or 4 episodes left of it. Oh, oh, and Fringe. Man, that's a good show! Geez, reading this paragraph makes me wonder how we have time to watch all that TV. I'll tell you how...DVR. No commercials! And sometimes we watch one show in real time and watch a recorded one on commercial breaks. We're good at this!!

  Now onto scrapping. I've whipped up a few pages in the last couple of pages. Here they are:

This page was done with Fresh Attitude kit from Digital Creative.

This one was made with Summer Driggs' Father's Day kit. If you're looking for whole kits free, this is an awesome site.

   Okay, I'm done now. I'm gonna get off here and catch up on some TV. We just put Maylee down for the night and it's OUR TIME now! Yay!
