 My husband has a new job!  He's pretty excited.  He'll start early July.  It'll be a step up for him and more pay so that's good.  

I've complained about work a bit lately, but while there are definitely a few grounds for complaint (like the fact that benefits were slashed), I think my greater problem is just a general sense of ennui.  I don't know if it is work or just me.  I mean, this has been, by far, the most pleasant library I've ever worked in.  The staff gets along well and even the greater campus is, on a whole, pretty easy going and pleasant.  But I just feel...blah.  I don't know if I really just need a vacation or if it has to do with the fact that I've been hit with one cold after another since October (I've been healthy for two whole weeks now, which is pretty much the longest stretch I've had) or if I'm just not satisfied anymore here or if I'm just not satisfied being a librarian.  I feel like this is such a first world problem, really, but here I am.  And I'm not sure what to do about it.

And tangentially related to being sick all the time, I've been sucking on cough/throat drops a lot since October and now that I'm healthy...I'm having some serious trouble with sugar withdrawal.  I want sugar all the time.  I'm trying to cut back.  

One of the ducks has been hiding her eggs.  We have not been able to find it.

Amelia's still scared of my dad, even though it's been a couple of weeks since he visited.

Congrats to husband on the job!

At the very least, it does sound like you need a break - and if after you come back from that, you feel the same then you know it's time for a bigger change. Maybe?

Well, I would say try to arrange for a vacation, and if that doesn't work...try to figure out how you can challenge yourself a bit at work instead of just the day to day stuff....which is what we tend to get focused on right?

Its been an exhausting year, but hey, health and new job for the husband! Yeah for a step forward!
