Still Wet - or Where's the Ark???

June in Houston is supposed to be dry, but someone forgot to tell the powers that be and it's been raining for what seems like forever. Normally tomato plants are burned to a crisp due to the heat, this summer they are rotting in the garden beds.

Spent more time in in-services and have achieved the holy grail of all librarians - my cataloging is caught up. Or at least the cataloging I know about. I'm not about to stick my nose round the library door, since I am sure there are books there waiting for me. The in-services have been fun - we sit around and catalog, share information and get to know each other a bit better. School librarianship can be a lonely job.

Then onward to one of those frustrating doctor appointments where you wait and you wait and you wait. The staff had the gall to request that new patients arrive 10 or 15 early to fill out paperwork. Why I don't know, there is plenty of time to fill it out while cooling one's heels in the waiting room for an hour and a half.

I think I have all the e-mail under control for the trip. Yahoo.groups are set to web only - we'll see how many I activate when I get back! Phone numbers and e-mail addresses are written down. It is going to be strange to not have a computer for 3 weeks. I hope there are as many internet cafes in Europe as folks say there are! Otherwise there will be some serious withdrawal going on!
