No, the conference did not kill me

March 2 was the last time I updated??? Wow. I cannot believe I did not post something about conference here. I will post my official conference wrap up, since it did not get in the Media Center Messenger (these things happen!). I will also post it to the SCASL blog, however, that will have to happen tomorrow. So, I PROMISE…a conference wrap up tomorrow–only 3 months later. It took that long to recover 🙂

Anyway, what have I been doing with my time? Professionaly, I’ve been preparing to open a BRAND NEW Library Media Center and preparing to say goodbye to the one I’m in now. Thursday is the last day for students and it’s going to be very hard to leave. I am not going to a new school because I’m mad or upset at anyone, I’m going to a new school because it’s NEW! I can’t wait. I’ve placed my first big book order – what will be the Opening Day Collection. Today, I turned in my magazine order and my supplies are on their way. Those ducks are in a row. I have one box left here to take to my car. Everything else is packed, notes are written for the next person in line. These ducks are in a row. I just need to remember my kleenex.

Personally, I’ve been plain busy. Marty and I bought a dog puppy. We have major HVAC issues in our house (like, right now, fans are blowing to dry water damage…sigh). Etc., etc., etc.

There you have my excuses for not blogging. I twittered the other day that I am going to buy a calendar and put Twitter time in it…may not really do that for twitter, but I AM going to do that for the blogs. I have something exciting planned for SCASL 2008-2009, which involves blogs and the like and I just like the reflection time in blogging…I’m a great former of habits, so once I start putting it on the calendar, I’ll stick to it.

Trust me.

In the meantime, just know that if I don’t update, I’m still around. I’m just busy (or on Facebook, the great time waster that it is).
