Long Time No Blog

I've been so bad about blogging lately, as well as visiting other blogs. But, I'll try to do both at least weekly since I don't want to lose touch with my favorite folks out there!

Here's an update:

I started my MSLIS program - Masters of Library and Information Science - last week. It's already proven to be a lot of work, long hours, and a bit of stress. My goal is to make sure it doesn't interfere with my family too much. I'll be finished by the end of next summer, and then will hopefully get a f/t job in an academic library at one of the four local universities, but I'll probably take whatever I can get.

I've had the good fortune to have had a few guests this last month! My Dad and his wife were most recently here, along with their oh-so-cute dog, Gracie, who's about the size of a peanut (not really, but she's tiny). We really had a great time. Before that, Joey and Tom came to visit and we enjoyed their company immensely. Then, my mom surprised me the week before that for my birthday! I came downstairs, having NOT showered since going to the gym that morning and looking like total crap, to find her in my kitchen. Despite wishing I'd been "more together", it was a fabulous surprise and we had a lovely week together.

On a sad note, we lost one of our dogs last week. He had a large mass on his spleen that ruptured. He was an old dog, and from what I understand, this isn't uncommon for his breed, but it devastated the family, especially the kids. We had a beautiful burial for him on our property - lots of flowers etc. The sadness will linger for awhile, I'm sure, but thankfully we're doing better this week.

That's about all for now. I hope you're all doing great in whatever you're doing - school, writing, work, etc.

How was your weekend? What did you do?
