There’s no denying that summer is here – while it hasn’t gotten crazy hot yet, there have already been a few days where the cat won’t come out from under the bed, and T and I just lounge about fussing over the weather. A suitable job offer in Minnesota would be amazingly tempting right now.

I survived the end of classes and finals here, and managed to work in a co-presentation at the state library conference in May. I think it went well, or at least nobody left and I didn’t swear, so I can confidently call it a success. Other professional-type activities have been keeping me busy, and as it turns out, my 10-year college reunion is less than a year away. Yikes – guess it’s time to start planning!

The excitement for June is lots of days off, which is sort of a mixed blessing. It’s great to have time off, and I’m excited to head home to Chicago for my cousin’s wedding at the end of the month, but I always end up with a bunch of days to use in June and have to scramble to take time off. Maybe next year I’ll convince myself to take more time off during the year?
