Have you ever felt yourself thinking you are too busy to even breathe? September, October, and November feel that way to me. I think it is because Summer Reading Club is finally over, and time to focus on the rest of the year. New projects are in the works, and here in Nova Scotia, we know bad weather is coming and so we try to pack all the programming in before the roads get nasty and folks stay inside. Just a sample of what my schedule has crammed into it:
*present at the NSLA conference
*teach storytelling at the community college
*write reviews of audiobooks
*create and present iPad literacy programs for grant
*teach felt-board classes at the local family resource centre
*help out with a Haunted House at a local museum
*coordinate Teen Read Week activities and put together a newsletter for that
*update social media and manage the blog
*write a blog post for ALSC
*plan for high-school visits
Just writing that list left me a bit breathless. But I guess I wouldn’t have it any other way–who wants to be bored at work? Time to take a deep breath and plunge in. At least one thing on my list is ticked off now…..
