I can conquer any obstacle!

I can conquer any obstacle!

My co-worker took this of me on Friday, when I was dressed for the task of re-loading the library (we got about half way through the job). You can see that many improvements had occurred even before Friday's work...there's my new ceiling and lights, a clean carpet, NO MORE TUBES!, and most of the garbage has been removed. Once we finish unpacking tomorrow, there's the job of re-ordering and processing the 2500 books that were damaged. I'll just have to keep remembering this picture.

Fun in the Sun

Life hasn't been all about the flood--today we watched Miri and had some fun out in the yard while her mom and dad led the music at church.

Air Tubes

Almost-empty library
Originally uploaded by kjourdan

They've been drying us out using these tubes that blow dry air through the place. They work well. However, they're also about 24 inches in diameter, and they go throughout the room and doorways into the hall, which means we all have to walk around bent at the waist in the flooded section of the school. It's so dry that it makes your throat hurt. Which is better than wet, I know. But talk about extremes.

Fun times, and not so fun times.

I just got back from a great weekend with my mom and sister. There was much fun and Vera Bradley (and wind!) to be had.

My school flooded over the weekend because of a burst pipe. The library (my library!) sustained the worst damage. This will be a long spring.
