Hi. I am Kooky Library Girl and I am only human.
I have to remind myself of that a lot. Despite not always having the greatest self-esteem, I have sometimes ridiculous self-expectation. It’s like I subconsciously think I’m supposed to be Wonder Woman or Bat Girl or something. I’m sure there is some Something-or-others Anonymous out there that would be perfect for me.
For instance, take my life at the moment…
I work full time in the technical services department as the library cataloger. Which means that I spend 40 hours each week slaving away mostly in a cold library basement. With the exception of the four hours a week which I spend at the library service desk with a smile pasted on my face. And let’s just be honest, money talks, so if I’m offered overtime I’m going to take it.
I am active in my church. I sing in Praise Team. Which means practices. I am on the women’s committee. Which means events. I teach the 10 – 15 year old group on Sunday mornings. Which means study and prep. I organize the Wednesday night children’s program, with songs and puppets and games and lessons. Which means a lot of patience, a lot of study, a lot of prep and a lot of creativity. I organize and orchestrate the annual three day winter vacation program (much like summer vacation bible schools). Which means creativity by the boat load and every second I can spare. And I’m sure I left something out.
I sound busy don’t I? I’m not done.
I just started taking classes online. Full time. I intend to get a Master’s in Library and Information Science. Those classes start this week.
I try to get to my brother’s house one evening a week to help out but I’ve been slacking here lately. He is an incomplete quadriplegic. That can get interesting.
Plus I am married and have two dogs and a house with all the normal house hold things hanging over my head. You know, dinner and laundry and trash…
And if all that is not enough, my latest hair brained idea is to blog.
So, perhaps I should remind myself again.
I am Kooky Library Girl and I am only human.
