Good News, Bad News, and Crazy News

Good: I was offered the part-time job last night.  I'm thrilled and I can't wait to start!

Bad: My co-librarian's father passed away Tuesday evening.  I feel so bad for her and her family.  The elder of my co-librarian's kids had college graduation today so that must be bittersweet.
Also, I heard from my mom who went to help take care of my grandfather after his surgery and she already is exhausted.  Seems he gets out of bed several times a night.  Did I mention she has to do this through the middle of next week?  Happy Mother's Day to her.  (Ridiculous because she's the only mother among her sibs and I think they forgot or something.)

Crazy: I've been on the hook for checking back with the juror phone message system thingy every night. . . and wouldn't you know, I have to go in tomorrow.  School's a half-day, and I have to put in a full one somewhere I've never been before.

Of course, the real irony is that there's a major event tomorrow, and while I already said there was a chance I might not be there, now I'm really not.  Too bad for the people expecting me to do all the singing.  I told the students they'd better get the music down today, so. . . good luck to them.

SD--thanks; this is a part-time job on the side, but it's at least one thing to do to keep money coming in during the summer.

CCR--thank you and I hope the same for you!

RS--thanks and YES. . . it got even worse when Aunt Flo showed up last night and I was queasy from the cramps this morning. But I survived!
