Hiding in Plain Sight


Long time no blog.

I know. *slaps own hand*  “Bad Blogger!”  But come on in, have a seat…


If you hang with me on Facebook and Twitter, then you know I haven’t really left, but that I’ve just been extremely more quiet about what is going on inside my own journey.    There’s good reason, I promise.

Books and Babies, Babies and Books


I know, I know, I’ve been away.

Sorry about that.  Life was doing all kind of life-like things.  First things first, I finished my Masters degree.  I am now officially a degreed Librarian.Photobucket {get it Kermie}

Not more than three days later, I became an EMPLOYED librarian when I was offered a teen services position at a local library.Photobucket {get it again, Mr.Frog}

And in the midst of all that was Mother’s Day and volunteering and a slew of other busywork.  But if you hang out with me on Facebook or Twitter, then you know I didn’t just leave you hanging.  However, I have been completely void of posting blogs.  Je m’excuse!
