IT'S BEEN FIVE YEARS
It looks as if it will be a nice day today. I think all the rain from yesterday is finished. Not that we didn't need the rain. We did. In the morning it was cold and nasty. But by the time I left work at 8 p.m, it was WARM and raining. No wonder people get sick this time of year.
Yesterday morning the computers went down again. Last time we could use them as stand alone, but this time even that was gone. Fortunately they went back up around lunch time.
Not that I got lunch. By the time I went out to Rite Aid to grab something and got back, Boss had to leave to go to a meeting and I had to sit in for him. AND I overslept and was late for work. So I didn't get breakfast. Well... I had an apple.
I got these new (to me) apples called Snapdragon. I have never heard of them before, but got them last week because they were on sale. They are wonderful! Sweet and tart at the same time. I will definitely be buying them again.
While I was sitting in for Boss a fight broke out among some of the pre-teen boys. They are regulars, so I knew all of them and went over and laid into them by name. I kicked them out of the library for the rest of the day. You just can't let a bunch of kids have a fist-fight and throw chairs around with little kids sitting there. They were all mad at me and on the way out told Doug who was at the desk to go "F" himself. Yeah. Nice kids. And people wonder why I want to leave.
Boss said to me yesterday that he didn't know I was really leaving. He thought I was just kidding. Hello! I've been telling you for three months now. I told him I had put the paperwork into Human Resources and he said he was just joking. Was he?
You may have wondered about the title of this post. Well, five years ago yesterday I began to blog. I was doing it just until I recovered from my surgery so that my friends and family would know how I was doing. I never expected to continue on for five years. It has been terrible at times and but most of the time it has been wonderful. I have met so many great people whom I have become friends with. Isn't it great how people can connect in blogdom even though they have never met in person? I tell people it is like a modern day penpal club.
I want to thank you all for your kindness, your comments, and especially for being you. You all make my life better and I am so thankful. I hope I can do another five years of blogging. There's a lot to experience as I go into my next phase of life, I'm sure.
