I'm Back...

We had a long week last week....sick boys, a sprained ankle, some migraines, and a trip to Chicagoland for a fitness conference and grandparent fun...hub 'worked' on the ever-lasting basement remodel.

First of is suddenly Spring. The grass turned beautifully green overnight and the temperatures are amazing! Thank you Mother Nature.

Secondly, I continue to investigate the new library. I find that I don't like to bring the kids with me anymore. I would rather like to go alone and find today, I discovered the periodicals section. I found the most recent issue of Consumer Reports but didn't see the previous issues. I ask...the librarian says 'they are underneath the current issue.' I had no idea what she was talking about...from initial appearance, there is only a single shelf. But no, it flips up and sure enough there are previous issues of the magazine or newspaper. How great.

I am still struggling with the self-check out. Today, I spent a couple minutes reading my receipt to figure out which cd didn't scan...then I beeped upon leaving (as I think I do every time). One of the books didn't scan.

I also have decided I don't like the display of movies and new music. The way it is stacked is cannot see them easily. Anyways. Still love the library. In a couple weeks, we'll be there a lot....storytime here we come!

Good advice on the magazine rack - I had no idea they flipped up like that.

Yea, the checkout drives me nuts sometimes too. Paying for new movies is now a pain because you have to call a librarian over, who then complains that you should have stood in the other line.

Still, I love being there, although I don't get over there nearly as much as I thought I was going to.
