The Library Oasis

Yesterday was not a good day.  It should have been because it was one of those rare days around here when a major appliance didn't break.  But it was still a bad day.

We've been running Doc Brown and Obi Wan-da ragged and yesterday it caught up with us.  When Doc gets tired he gets wired.  When Obi Wan-da gets tired she gets irritable (I have no idea where she gets that).  Put the two together and...Not. Pretty.

Add an impatient mother and it becomes considerably less pretty.

So I had dinner ready the moment PB got home so I could immediately walk out the door and escape before someone got hurt.  I've found this wonderful little hiding place for days like these: the library.  It's relatively quiet and there are lots of books so I can just wander around aimlessly in peaceful bliss and let my brain chill.  And, oh yeah, it's free.

Also, it's close so I was able to get 1 1/2 hour to myself and still be home to kiss the kids goodnight.

All better now.

I love going to the library. I usually come out with a big stack of books that I don't have time to read. Just being in there is relaxing. And, like you said--free!
Hope today was better for everybody!

I get lost in the craft/sewing books...ahh.... it's amazing how much "school" you can find in the DVD/video sections too.
