Daffy sent me this picture and it amuses me.
It is very busy at work. I know that is a good thing. We are all just a little overwhelmed right now, with lots of patrons to help, lots of programming going on. Today, one of my co-workers called in sick. Part of me wishes I had too! Another small snag in my week involves the storytelling room (we call it the Imagination Theater, oooohhhh) being unexpectedly out of commission. They were to lay down new carpet yesterday morning. It was supposed to be done in a snap. But somehow they didn't have enough carpet squares to complete the job. How does this happen in a professional installation? Hrumph! Anyway, they had to order more and they MAY be back to finish on Thursday. Meanwhile, we can't use the space. So, this I have to do my Toddler Storytime in the picture book area. Their parents will just have to keep them corraled I guess. I really like having a room where they can walk around, but be confined. Plus, it is fine if other people are nearby and feel compelled to join in on most of the elements. I don't have extra crafts though, so hopefully people will understand that I can't hand them out to the room at large. I also ususually show a little 5 minute video and we can't do that. So, as you can see, there is nothing majorly wrong or even majorly difficult about this change. Maybe I am just being rigid...and I do think if I felt more energetic it would help. Anyway, then two more storytimes tomorrow morning and a class visit on Thursday morning...all a little discombobulated, but surely they will be fine in the end.
Oh, AND I had to go to the DMV this morning to renew my license. I had an appointment and was in and out of there, but I felt quite put out at having to do it. Someone probably needs to smack me upside my head and soon. Here's to a better attitude tomorrow. I will try to think of a fun Choose and Defend :-D
