Sometimes it stinks to be an adult

April 10th, 2006 by cathy

Sometimes I wish that I had no responcibilities except going to school and handing in my homework. I’m involved in this grant, which is really great because I get to work with other librarians and it helps homeschoolers, but its hard because there are parts that I need to do, and unfortunately, I don’t really have any help. One of the biggest downfalls to a small library is that when you do things, its just you doing everything, there isn’t a helpful assistant that will pop out at your bidding. Therefor, I have a lot on my plate. I hate even saying it anymore, because complaining is really getting old. I’m getting tired of saying “whaa whaa” “I have to do all the ordering and programming for kids and teens” “Whaa, feel sorry for me” I mean, puh-lease. If I heard someone else say that, I’d tell them to grow up.

Still, I had to create 30 art kits on different topics (15 for K – 2 and 15 for 3 – 5), and I was having a hard time figuring out how to divide up the kits. At one point I had everything divided by time period and type of art. Then one of the pages (who is an education major) slapped me in the face (not really, but she should have) and said umm.. Cathy? How about colors and shapes? Kindergarteners don’t really need to know about the Baroque and Renaisannce time periods. Well how about stating the obvious? At least it should have been. But I just kept getting more and more complex and I really didn’t have any idea what I was going to do. At least now I just have to get books on colors, ballerinas, instruments, play-doh. You know kid stuff.

Oh well. Time to DDR now. Nighty night.

Update (2 minutes later): Too late to DDR since its already 10 pm. 🙁
