Since I'm talking about my secret dreams here, I might as well come clean and tell you all that another one of my secret dreams is to be a librarian. I don't know if it will ever happen because it requires me going to grad school, which is more school (blech) and grad school requires taking the GRE or GMAT or something. Not to mention I'm kind of busy raising a bunch of kids, homeschooling them, supporting my husband through his own grad school experience, etc. But I love books, and I think it would be awesome to have a job where I was around books all day.
Plus, today at the library I actually came across a nice librarian (a first since we've been in Virginia). This librarian didn't shove any red cards into any of my books,* informed me that she really enjoyed one of the books I was checking out,** and told me that she too enjoys reading YA novels.
*Buddy agreed with me that this was awesome. But he's an an agreeable mood lately and has a lot of opinions. He also thinks President Obama has done nothing with his presidency so far (hmm... sound like Jed?). He also complains a lot about the traffic light timing in town (also reminiscent of everything I hear Jed complain
**Sadly, I think this was a first from a librarian. I check out A LOT of books, but I've never had a librarian comment on them at all... and they are librarians, they should definitely love to read and read a lot. They should have something to say to the library patrons.
