Doing my job

I wish I would have figured out my calling a long time ago.  Then again, I’m a believer that things happen the way they are supposed to and for a reason.  I still love my job.  I know there will be a point that I will not like something about my job, but so far it’s still going well.  I don’t care much for the lack of communication from my school administrators, but at the same time I appreciate that they seem to trust me and leave me to do my job as I see fit.  I love staying busy all day but not dealing with lesson plans, discipline, parents, and all the other annoying stuff I had to do as a teacher.  Today I worked on the website, met with classes checking out books, set up a mobile lab, processed more books, and resolved printing issues.  I ended up staying really late getting old computers out of the way to get ready for new computers that will be installed tomorrow. 

I came home and let the animals out to do their business.  I’m still fighting with Mollie on doing what she needs to do when I get home.  Then I headed to the grocery store since I didn’t get there this weekend.  I didn’t get home until almost 8.  Tomorrow is going to be a busy day.  Luckily I got a little reprieve in that I don’t have to deal with the math teachers coming in to test until tomorrow.  I’ll have time to get the laptops set up with the link for the test.  Hopefully I’ll also be able to get the additional books I have processed before I lose my data station computer. 

I was kind of nervous about working as a librarian.  I wasn’t sure if I had really learned enough or had enough “on the job” training so to speak, but I feel like I’m picking things up pretty well.  The district librarian facilitator told me the other day that I worry her because I haven’t had any issues or needed a lot of help as of yet.  I told her that I’m awesome and on the ball.  I’ve surprised myself in how well I’m figuring things out. 

I need to get to bed.  I should try to get to school early tomorrow – still have lots to do.

It is so wonderful that things have fallen into place the way they have. When we are doing what is meant to be done, it often works this way. I love the feeling of knowing that I am doing just exactly as God planned for me.

Have a great day today. Hugs, friend. :)
