My Life In Bullet Points

* We are having to trade in our Honda Fit which has only 27000 miles on it because it has been in the shop 4 times and had valves replaced, found to have a faulty piston that was off by some miniscule millimeter, which was hosing everything, and had the head replaced. If we hadn't had warranty the price tag would clock in at over $6000. My parents are elderly and live six hours away. I now travel a fair bit for work and I live in the 'burbs. I need a dependable car. If this one craps out once the warranty is done, we are screwed. I know Honda is usually dependable, but we no longer trust this car. *sigh* I hate few things more than I hate car buying.

* I love LOVE my new position at work (pretty new. I've been here 7 months) but is is CRAZY BUSY OMG. I can't believe I thought, 'I won't be frontline anymore! I'll have tons more time!' But getting to buy all the new kid books is pretty awesome!:-D

* In the same vein, I am on the Texas Library Association Conference Little Mavericks Graphic Novel Commitee, which is the committee that makes up the list of childrens graphic novels! Of course, I didn't think I had GOTTEN on the committee, and had not committed to the conference in San Antonio, which si an added expense, but still. So if anyone has any fantastic childrens graphic novels they wanna rec, hit me up! Our age limit goes up to twelve.

* All my book holds came in at once WHYYYYYYYYYYYY arrgh. So I am trying to finish LABYRINTH LOST by Zenaida Cordova, DOROTHY MUST DIE by Angie Thomas, and THE FORGETTING by Sharon Cameron, in six weeks.

* THE HAWKS ARE IN THE PLAYOFFS!! My Dallas Stars are not, pobrecitos. The Stars are also losing their coach, which is so sad making. Here's wishing The Blackhawks well and wishing the Stars a good re-building off-season.

* Am almost done with this LEADERSHIP ACADEMY someone nominated me for which, I am white-knuckling through, because OMG REALLY?? I am the LEAST leadership inclined person I know, but I had just gotten the promotion at work and it didn't seem politic to turn it down. Besides which, I have major MAJOR issues with the leaderhips of our system. That makes it hard to go through this thing. I just have to make it through June...

* D and I are taking a vacation to Portland in June (HI DINE!!!) but I'm not sure I allotted enough time for what we have planned. We want to go to Victoria in Canada, since D has never been out of the country. We are taking an Amtrak from Portland to Seattle. Somehow we need to visit with her cousin,and people we both know, in Portland AND my bff in Seattle. And spend at least 48 hours in Victoria. And take the Amtrak back. All in six days. :-/

* I know there's more, but just that is enough to make me tharn for right now.
