I forgot what a great place it is!

Where you ask? The library of course! Anyone who knows me knows I've always been a reader. Became a reading teacher. Would rather read than do almost anything else. I've had a library card as long as I can remember, and used to go at least once a week. The libraries in NY were very different.....very, very big, very well stocked, and very wonderful. Libraries here in rural PA are small, crappily stocked, and mediocre at best. So I go from time to time, but just lost my library love along the way.

Thankfully my kids love books too, and we do go for them here and there. With summer finally here, I decided to start going at least on a weekly basis, and have my older son join the summer reading program that starts next week. So he and I headed over there today, and I must say, I was pleasantly surprised.

The kids' section was nicely stocked. But in addition to the books they now have some puzzles and games, as well as a computer with tons of educational goodies for them to bro…

Bloggity Blahs

I haven't really had much to say lately, so I haven't blogged at all. And now that I'm here and reading some of my friends' blogs, I'm seeing the same trend. Maybe it really was just my winter hobby. But now the weather is beautiful, the kids are out of school, and we're always on the go. As much as I love my laptop, I love being away from it too!

I've actually started a blog for someone else as part of a website I'm creating for her. I think I'm enjoying that writing more, simply because it has a common theme and purpose! And I'm starting to remember why I love designing websites, which I stopped doing about 6 months ago because of time constraint. I think I'm going to start working on them a bit again. My life has been at a stand-still for a while now, and it's time to move forward!
So happy Wednesday, and Happy Birthday to my little 4 year old Alex:)
