I Has a Tired

It was my intention today to write you all a nice long post about ALA, the number of free books I received, how I almost cried when I got to hug Smart Bitch Sarah and she thanked me so profusely for helping out with the tornado victim donations, and how much Caty missed me, but today, I am tired.

So tired it hurts.

Work is insane.  Today, I cataloged 10 super heavy books and then dropped one of them on my fingers (ouch!).  I answered a million questions for the new residents.  I went on a mad hunt for a CD-ROM I knew existed only to find out that someone took it out of the library and forgot to check it out.  I played delivery girl, printer repair girl, mail girl, and run around like crazy girl.  Tonight I get to play babysitter, kitty mommy, and maid.

I am tired.  I want to sleep, without interruption or alarm clocks, until I wake up.  I want to lay in my pajamas and watch all the summer tv I’ve missed (but DVRed!).  I want to have time to bake something yummy.  I want my face to stop breaking out.  And I (really) want the cat to not shred toilet paper at three in the morning.

But all of that is going to have to wait.  There is too much going on, both at work and in my personal life, and I simply don’t have the time to do/write/cook all the things I want.

But right now, I’m so tired.

Just wanted to briefly say hello, as I came across your blog recently and love it already. Libraries and recipes/cooking, yes please. I look forward to reading your post about ALA!

Thanks! And welcome to the blog. I’m working on that ALA post so shouldn’t be much longer now. 🙂 I hope.
