I am sort of working on writing a book about Simple Living. I did a bunch of research this summer. It was quite fun, really. I did a bunch of reading on all kinds of stuff. Sometimes I'd go to the library looking for one book, but ending up with something else that I didn't even know about, but somehow, it ended up being connected. Or it was just really cool. Or really funny.
And I've also been working on creating Seasonal Menus and so I went to the library and checked out a bunch of cookbooks.
And I'm homeschooling and teach preschool, so I often get books at the library to supplement.
And my kids love to check out books at the library.
Why is all this going to the library a problem you ask? Well, it isn't the going that is the problem. I, obviously, love going to the library and I love that my kids love to go to the library.
It is getting the books back in a timely manner that is the problem.
I can renew the books online, so that should help. It hasn't. I live close by, so that should help. It hasn't.
The library currently has a program where you can bring in a can to cover $2.50 in library fines. I'm embarrased at how many cans that I would need to bring in my account current. It is over 10. And 15. Sigh. And with all my simple living and home canning, I don't have a lot of actual "cans" around to bring in.
So today, I have to run out to Aldi's to buy some foods in cans to that I can be let out of library "jail" and be able to borrow books again. I will return books in a timely manner after this. I promise.
(Yea, right. LOL)
