Apologies nerdgirls & friends, it’s been too long. It’s amazing how busy life can get when sometimes you work 11 hour days and discover firsthand the addictive qualities of Angry Birds. Let me catch you up to speed.
A few weeks ago I bought myself a Christmas present – the new iPod touch! To be honest, I wanted it more for the wifi capabilities & apps than the music player. I love being able to stay connected with my email, facebook, & twitter without sitting in front of an actual computer. And oh, the apps! Seriously, Angry Birds gets addicting. Plus I’ve just discovered apps for Cash Cab, Set, Picross, and Kakuro. If you don’t know of those, do yourself a favor and check them out. Fun AND good for your brain!
Next up: the weather. Wherever you live, there’s a good chance you saw snow this past weekend. I saw a lot of it. Not because I was up in Minnesota by the Metrodome or anything but because there were blizzard warnings in Illinois! My sister and I were traveling back upstate from being home. It took us 6 hours to go what’s normally a little over 3 and then it took me 3.5 hours to go what’s normally about 2. The blowing snow was horrible!
That’s taken on an actual interstate in Central Illinois. I do not recommend driving in blizzard conditions. Wish we could all be on a warm cruise like Jen!
The last update on my life is about my library. We’re a finalist to win $10,000 in a contest! And, if we win, all of the money will go to improve our small teen area! I know most of you who know me have voted, but if you’re a fan of libraries (and how can you not be if you’re reading our blog) please take a second to vote. You use your email address, but you will NOT get spam or even a confirmation. Please use all your email addresses; they each count as a vote. http://vote.playaway.com/v/mortongrove/ Thanks to everyone who’s voted! I really appreciate it!!
