Thursday morning. I would like a little more sun then what I am currently seeing in the sky, a little more energy to do all I need to do, and a little more COFFEE.
Yesterday afternoon after much heartfelt consideration I sent in my resignation from the Minnesota Association Of Library Friends Board. It was a hard decision to make. I enjoyed being a part of the decisions that Minnesota makes for their Friends groups and their Libraries. The dynamics of these meetings being over two hours away for me to attend was part of the decision. Two hours there, 3 to 4 hour meeting, two hours back. It was a full day commitment. It also, inevitably always collided with something else… my Friends (local) meetings, our book sales; the next one would have been Monday and Tuesday I leave for Chicago so it would have been a full day on Monday in St Paul and then leave Tuesday morning for Chicago and drive it again plus.
Even more than all of that – in this new world I have here, I prefer to stay closer to home. I have plenty to keep me involved locally. And I enjoy my time here. So for now… I take a step back. While my heart works on some sort of healing, I will do life a little closer to home. ♥
Today – I will work outside a bit while listening to audio. A couple of friends are stopping by this afternoon and later I will start to pack for next week trip. Moving forward day to day, little by little.
