Feeling Thankful

This morning, I am off to Boise to attend the annual Read to Me meeting, hosted by the Idaho Commission for Libraries. It is a two-day meeting, so I'll be there tomorrow, too. Among adults!! I'll have the chance to hob-nob with librarians from across the state, learn about early literacy outreach programs, grant availability, listen to some great guest speakers, and hopefully gather up a bunch of new ideas that I can bring back to my library. My husband has taken these next two days off so that I can do this, and I am so grateful to him for that (thanks, honey!). Although my position at the library is small, I'm hoping one day that it will turn into something more, and I'm glad Steve is helping me achieve that. While I am on the subject of Steve, let me just tell you that he was so helpful this past week. Camden was so very sick, I was sick...we were a mess, basically. Steve was in the middle of a training exercise and was working crazy, crazy hours, but found a way to come home not once, but twice, to help care for us. While this past week was not fun at all, I am glad to have times like this to remind me how lucky I am to have such a great husband. The fact of the matter is, Steve wasn't doing anything out of the ordinary these past few days - - he is a great husband and father all of the time. I am a lucky girl.

The household appears to be illness-free at the moment. We've had a day when the high temperature reached 67 degrees. Green grass is poking up on the lawn. Getting lots of rain. The tulips are coming up in the back yard. I dare say, spring is on the way. I'm sure we'll have a few more cold snaps here and there, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel, I believe. We are ready for spring!

How wonderful for you to take some time for yourself and be with adults! You certainly must take advantage! Glad to hear all are well. I envy you the green grass coming up....Still have 10 inches at least of snow on the ground here.
