Life: Well April started off great with a week off for Spring Break, I had a busy end of the month with getting sick and having Bookfair start. I’m also trying to get my library in order for the end of the year, we are getting new furniture over the summer and rearranging a bit so I’ll have to pack books when school ends. Going to be nuts but hopefully it will be improve the feel of our library.

Looking Forward:  Going to be busy this month, so I’m expecting to see a drop in reading, but I’m excited for the end of the school year.

Life: So work was insane this month, I have been crazy busy and I am soon going to be moved to another department 🙂 On a more negative note the house thing did not work out so we are having to just upgrade to a bigger apartment at our complex. But it’s okay, I am just ready to be settled for a while. Also I got married!!! 🙂 I also met a bunch of new people and made friends so I have been busy hanging out with them. Life has actually been going pretty well other than the failed house thing but I guess even that has a silver lining.

    New furniture for the library will definitely be awesome once everything is in place. Good luck with the packing and unpacking in the fall. You guys read so many books, and I see a few I’ve read too. Congrats on getting married!
