Hmm. I was watching someone back up a truck with a U-Haul trailer. Took them several tries, but they finally got it. I wonder if they're going to load or unload after midnight, but they aren't close to my unit, and I don't care. Actually, I kind of like that Lincoln has night owls. Bloomington didn't.

I learned at work that the techies in our consortium can save me a lot of work during our conversion from Dewey Decimal to Library of Congress Classification this summer. Cool beans.

I've been looking into how to learn to play pool. A decent cue will cost me over $100. There is a school up in Rockford, about 2.5 hours from here, but it costs $500. Not happening any time soon.

Mimi has been working hard at ingratiating herself to me. When I flop down on the bed, she starts purring before I even pet her, and gives me kisses. Well, that's how I wound up with her in the first place. She seems to really like me. I've been able to break up some squabbles between her and Zara by telling her, "No". But she chased Zara out of the kitchen this morning. So I don't know. I don't have much time to find her a new place anyway because my presentation is rapidly coming up. I'm meeting with my co-presenter on Saturday to discuss our introduction to the presentation.

We had a "heavy" thunderstorm earlier, and it's very hot and humid. The cats are crashing out in puddles of fur.

I need to get up early to cover a lunch, so I'm not going to do a lot of cleaning tonight.

Goofy Day

I overslept this morning by 45 minutes, and made it in 7 minutes late to relieve the front desk worker for lunch. I consider that a moral victory. Forgot to take my morning meds, so I was tired all day.

Good news though. I've been trying for years to get appointed to one of the committees of librarians selected from members of our consortium, and this year, I finally made it. I guess that I'm heading in the right direction in developing my career...two presentations and a committee appointment...

I almost forgot to take dinner tonight. I usually go at 5:45 PM, but had planned to go at 4 PM because I got in early. I left at 5:30. Oops. So now I'm not hungry yet.

I also forgot that we're working only seven-hour days in the summer, and worked eight. I needed to be on online chat from 7 - 9 PM though, so I don't know how I would have been able to work seven. I'm on salary though, so it doesn't really matter.

I worked a little on my poster presentation. I'm planning to work a lot on it on Sunday.

I need to scramble to run errands and do laundry tomorrow because I need to meet with my co-presenter on Saturday to discuss the intro to our (live) presentation. Life is going to be hectic up though the time that we do the presentation (a week from this Tuesday).

When I got home, I enjoyed lying on my bed, playing with my phone, and snuggling with two cats. Home is where the heart is. I'm feeling more guilty about Mimi because there was a picture on Facebook of a sad dog who has been bouncing from home to home. That's Mimi's situation. I'm her third human. Well, I'm not doing anything about her right now. And she's been mellow tonight.
