Well, today is my last 10 hour day in a string of 23 ten hour days catering for Harvard's Summer conferences. Tomorrow is my first full weekend off o=in a loooooooong time! Blissfully I can sleep past 4:00 am tomorrow as I won't have to be at Harvard by 6:00!

Now I have the joy of facing the dreaded basement remodeling that wills tart in August, i.e the joy of cleaning out 10 years of accumulated crap thus allowing the contractors access to the space that needs to be remodeled! I am way to much of a pack rat and working in bookstores and libraries for over 25 years has allowed me to collect way to many old books that I will probably never read again but cannot bear to throw away. Anyone in need/want of some vintage Americana titles let me know!

Still trying to get to the beach! Alas!

Well, It's been over a month since my library contract ended and I've managed to work either full and/or double catering shifts everyday. All thanks to Harvard's Summer education seminars program. The money's good but I am getting tired and feeling rundown. I need a little reset time to myself before returning to my library position in August!
