It’s been a while

So I know…it’s been a while…I’m sorry – it’s not you, it’s me. Really. Of course I still love you!

Sigh – I have been sooo busy that I haven’t had a chance to breath, let alone update – but I’m taking a few valuable minutes to do that, just for you.

So first things first: If you want to keep up with me, informally of course, follow me on Twitter: http://twitter.com/librarianAnna
I update that thing all the time, or anytime I go to the bathroom.
Which then updates my Facebook page – so find me there too…and on facebook I take random pictures and put them on there immediately (via phone – I love it!)

Now for the life – recent hurrah’s:
-I got onto CSC!!! Wooohooooo! It’s a two year commitment and I’m looking forward to it!
-Matthew celebrated his birthday and let me tell you – he was SHOCKED by his gift. He had NO idea that I did this, nor did he pick up on any of the lies. I made Matthew a Boudoir Album! I went through Varland Photography to do this and it was AWESOME! As soon as the pictures are online I’ll put a link here. But he really had NO CLUE that I did this and I thought for sure that he had an inkling..nope, nothing, nada. He was just so stunned he couldn’t talk. And he really like the pictures 🙂 I am awesome :-).
-I got to see my sistah!

and now I have to go…I’ll try and update soon.

Wow, it’s been a while….

So I know I’ve been away for a while, things have just been busy and I haven’t been able to bring myself to type, when I spent so much time thinking “I should really do something with my time” but now that I’m doing something with 40 hours of my time each week, I feel entitled to freely post online, without fear that I’m being lazy – damnit I’m allowed a post or two a week! 😛

Enough with that – Let me catch you up with my life, in reverse chronological order:

Tomorrow, June 9, is Matthew and My’s 2nd anniversary – wooohooo!  Can I tell you a huge pet peeve??  When people find out we’ve only been married for 2 years and they say “Oh that’s not very long” because YES it is very long, we’ve been dating for SEVEN years ppl! Just b/c we didn’t tie the knot a year after we met doesn’t mean we don’t know each other.  Ugh, that’s a huge pet peeve – but I think Matthew feels the same way, so that makes me feel better.  We’re kinda celebrating right now, but not like last year (10 Geocaches in one day….insane!) I gave him his gift, well our gift, a Red Wings shaped and decorated cake – it’s freakin sweeeet! When I upload the pics (which could be next month) I’ll let you know.  If you want to know the cake maker let me know – she does awesome stuff!!!

This past week has been my first week of work as a Children’s Librarian, an official one! It’s been a good week!!! I reallly like the place, the people, the kids, even the location (which is 50 mins from home)  I think it’s going to be a great place to work and make name for myself and summer Reading Program has kicked off so we have a lot of people in the library – loads of fun!

Along with the new job I got a new car – a 2007 Dodge Caliber – his name is Dewey and he’s muy sexy

Dewey!

I got him with 4000 miles on him and now he has 8000 – he’s getting old fast 😛 but I love him so!

I’ve been to a slew of weddings these past few weeks and have a few more to go to next month – I’m looking forward them.

Well I think that’s all for now – been nice to tell you all what I’ve been up to and that I haven’t died or anything crazy like that…just been way busy and now I think I need a nap 😛

Ciao! Anna

Whoa! 2008!

So it’s 2008 and I have started the year of with a bang!

1) I put in my two weeks notice for the daycare – I still don’t have another job but it’s time – I’m ready to move on and really focus on things that need my focus. I have some bitterness towards this leaving for many reasons but I’m trying to be as nice as possible. If you want details give me a call.

2) Matthew and I found a great bargain at Sofa Express – they are going bankrupt and we found a great bedroom set really cheap – so we now have a real bedroom set, two nightstands, a queen bed with head and foot boards, dresser with mirror, and a chest of drawers. We even got nice lamps for the bedside and the dresser. I’ll put in pictures and you can check them out yourself!

Bed and Nightstands

Dresser and Chest of Drawers

3) I think this year I’m going to try and sell my crocheted stuff.  So I’m taking orders.  I’m also going to make at least one child’s sized sweaters.

4) I guess another resolution is to try and keep the laundry washed and folded without having piles of it.  More over I want to keep the bedroom looking nice and pretty.  Hell I might even make the bed EVERYDAY! eh, once a week will be enough.

Alright that’s it for now, I need to go switch the laundry and clean up and get to the stores soon.  I’ll post again this week (yell at me if I don’t!)

The job

So I started my new job – I’m working as a Library Assistant, which, yes, would not have been my first choice – I’ve tried to get jobs as a Librarian in many different capacities but have found it to be extremely difficult.  So I got my foot in the door with the LA position, Part time.  In 3 months I can apply for another job in the system and have a much better chance of moving up.

So I started this past week and on the first day on the job I completely floored my boss – I started doing the normal stuff I should be doing, by myself – no help – just went at it.  I did fairly well, demonstrated that I’m competent, and when I’m not sure I speak up.   She clued me into to some of things I’ll be doing – mostly helping to incorporate baby sign language into the programs and possibly start a baby signs program.  I’m definitely excited about this!  The other thing she told me to do was to get a good reputation within the system and this will help me get hired for a better job.  I think I can do this fairly easily – one way I’m going to try doing it is to volunteer to work at other branches – then I get to check them out and wow them by my mad skills.  I can start doing this after 30 days, so I’m eager to get trained and “approved”.

That’s about it for now – I’m pretty happy about all this – today I have a day off from the library (not the Y) so I’m getting some stuff done around the house. – So that’s all for now!
