I just joined NaBloPoMo. January's theme is BEST.
We started back to school today after two full weeks off for Christmas vacation. I love free time, sleeping in, staying up late, going where I want when I want...but since I've got to have a job to support the lifestyle I've become accustomed to (hot water, food, shopping, gas in the car...) , the job I have is the best for me: school librarian. I have classes with students whom I am glad to see. Interesting, fun to be with people. Other people, younger people, are my library patrons and they bring me great joy too. Funny stories, enthusiasm, energy and in a way I play the role of their grandma. Their teacher (parent) sends them to the library for a visit. I keep them, spend quality time with them and then send them back home again. 3:30, time to go home.
I am really grateful to have a job, and especially one I enjoy so much.
