So I was looking at my “blog page” this morning (the page that shows recent blog posts since the front page of my site is now a placeholder page) and I realized there’s two big things I haven’t updated the site about yet.
First: I was permanently placed in the “managerial” position at my small library after the few months interim period. I feel much better now that it’s “permanent” – the weird interim phase was nerve-wracking. However, now I have to fret about how to get people to visit my small library. If you have ever seen anything really cool at your small library, or been to any cool small-library programming, please let me know.
Second: We got a cat! I don’t think I’ve told you that yet. Nikki has been begging Donnie for a cat for a few years. He was very happy when our two cats finally both crossed the rainbow bridge because he was sick of kitty litter and hairballs. But it turns out, he’s been missing having a cat too so he left it up to her to find a kitten to adopt and she did! His name is Claude and he’s been a happy part of our family for a few months now.
Claude was the name given to him by the family fostering his litter, but it stuck. He would not let Roscoe bully him so now him and Roscoe are buddies and it’s hilarious because Roscoe still bullies Zoomie – the pit mix – so what we have now is this weird “clique” thing happening where Zoomie is scared to be around either of them and so they’ll sleep next to each other and Zoomie will be on the other side of the room. Claude also gets Roscoe to kinda place, which is also adorable. Mom always wanted to get a new cat, but I wouldn’t let her because she couldn’t afford to take care of Roscoe. But now that I see how well he does with a kitten, I feel bad retroactively for denying her that chance.
I just wanted to pop in and give you those two big updates!

It’s SOOOOOOOOOO good to hear from you!!!!!!
Congrats on your new job! My local library does a “Read with Rover” program once a month. Kids can read with a group of therapy dogs.
Yippee for job security! My library has a knitting group that meets once a week. There is also a cookbook exchange coming up. I would attend a theme book exchange–kids, early chapter, graphic novels, mysteries, etc.
