It’s Friday World

As Meredith said, yesterday’s post was a downer in a lot of ways, but I still love what I do. I just had to commit those feelings to “paper” and get them off my brain. I feel better and I hope you all do as well.

A couple people have asked, “How did y’all decide what do use and do during Five Weeks?” As usual, Meredith has beat us to the punch and written a fabulous post. She is way more organized then the rest of us! Those of you that have been asking about the nuts and bolts, go read the post. If Meredith left anything out, just ask us. We are happy to share. Seriously, I wonder if she ever sleeps.

Meredith calls me her “wing-man” and ours is a duo I love being a part of. I think we make a great team. She keeps me on track and I keep her from worrying about things to death. Well sorta. 😉 If you want to see this dynamic duo in action, we will be doing a Five Weeks pony show at CIL. There will be real ponies!

Working with the other organizers was fun. I physically work with Karen so that was nothing new, but getting to know Dorthea, Amanda, and Ellyssa was a joy.

Today, I am going to work on the TLA preconference I am teaching called Library Instruction 2.0: Free Online Tools for Teaching With Technology. Somehow, I have to figure out a way to keep 100+ librarians engaged from 9-4 with limited internet and no computers. *sigh*
