Mini-Vacation & Reflections

19 Aug

We’re on our way to Michigan this morning, having stopped overnight at my parents’ home in western PA for a quick overnight visit. We’re heading out for a surprise birthday party and to spend some time with good friends and their new baby! 

I’m so ready for a long weekend after my first official week as the director (while still working as the children’s librarian until we replace me). So I’m working two jobs – trying to get ready as our current director’s last day is today and I’ll be in charge when I get back to work on Tuesday.

My week consisted of meetings, meetings and more meetings, writing everything down so that hopefully I have notes to refer to as I need them. I’m also continuing to work my desk hours which meant that meetings began at 9:00am the other day and I was on the desk until 9:00pm… a very long day. By 5 o’clock yesterday, I was so ready for a break.

But, our trip across the state really helped me to relax as we chased the sunset through the Appalacian mountains with a beautiful sky filled with oranges, pinks, purples and blues. I love how nature’s beauty is all around if you only remember to look for it. I’ll be back to work on Tuesday, feeling refreshed and rejuvenated and ready to start my first week on my own as the director.
