"Time keeps on slippin' into the future." So true. When I last posted in March, I was buried in schoolwork, family life, and library work. Now it's November and I'm still "up to my eyeballs in alligators," but I can see a light at the end of the tunnel. My library school experience will last for one more month and then that part of my library training will end. I won't miss the crazy schedules or the homework; I might miss the camaraderie of group suffering with fellow students.

As time moves onward, I look forward to new challenges. I hope to find a fulltime job as a children's librarian and put my newly minted degree to work. I plan to attend ALA (American Library Association) MidWinter Conference in Dallas after the new year. And most of all, I hope to slow down enough to enjoy the life I've been given and spend time with people who matter to me. Happy Holidays!
