So much to say, so little time

This is my new work home as of May 23, 2016
Lauderdale Lakes Library

I was very happy in my old Library, but due to some organizational changes. I have been placed here.  I have always been a Youth Services Librarian, I also ran story times for all ages.  I did tours outreach programs and more.  I am now an Adult librarian and am not happy with this change.  I miss working with the kids.  I only have a few years until retirement so I have to stick it out but it's not going to be easy.

May 22nd we had to put my furbaby Phoebe to sleep.  She had cancer in her mouth called osteosarcoma.  It was one of the hardest decisions I had to make.  We all went to the vet together as a family to support each other.  She is now with her Mayah and grandpa.

This year and a half has been filled with many challenges. We moved to a smaller house that has an HOA.  We never belonged to an HOA before and I am not liking it too much.  There are too many restrictions.  I can't do anything in my little back area.  I can't fence in anything.  I wish we could move to a larger house with a yard and no restricitions.

My man!
It's 7 years tomorrow that I last saw my daddy.

 I could say father but he was always daddy not dad to me.  He was so much more than that, I miss him still so much it hurts.  He was my mentor, hero, friend, confidant, my everything.  I miss his laugh, his easy ways, his love, all of him.  It was a long road after my mom died.  In the very beginning it wasn't bad at all, he just needed help with basic stuff, he was driving had girlfriends and it was good having him live with us.  Everything started going downhill around 1999-2000 he started having trouble with his walking, he had prostate cancer and needed radiation treatment, which left him incontinent.  But he still had his girlfriends. Then the nice one died and the smart one didn't want to go out with him any more because she knew there was something going on with his health.  Only Mildred held on.  We all hated her, she used him only to go out for dinner and to movies. etc.  But he was happy with her and that's all that mattered.  In 2000 I think is when he totaled his car and then I started to drive him on his dates.  I don't think Mildred liked that too be continued

my journey with dad

I really want to start bloging about my caretaking I don't want to forget what it was like.
It's been a long time since I posted anything. I've been thinking about my dad George lately, and everything that happened to him and that I experienced with him. This is a song I found to get me through sometimes.

Teen Tech Week Cont....

I have eight teens in the computer lab, I think they are having fun. I gave a short instruction on our data bases and then on Melville Dewey decimal system. Everyone one was very unimpressed.
