Considering how much I'm cutting into library time with personal business -- taking care of a sick Eddie last week for example -- I'm surprised I can find time to continue weeding the fiction. I do find time to review the long range plan, where I feel that changes can be kept to a minimum (i.e., I can save myself some work here) and the overdues section of the circulation policy. Now if I could just find time to revise my basic reference syllabus and start coming up with a structure for the children's reference workshop.
I get a lot of exercise today since my threat to have nothing to do with getting the van tun ed up proves to be nothing but hot air. Big surprise. I'm first in the service line at Russ Darrow. I walk home without stopping for breakfast at IHOP or Denny's, not wanting to risk a violent case of IBS along Gammon Road. A minimal staffing level at the library forces me to postpone a planned return walk after lunch to the late afternoon. I pick up the boys, Eddie first. When JoAnna returns home, the boys and I are playing on the hammock.
