I have been working a bit lately.  Though family life is calmer when I don’t, my job fits in pretty well.  It is five minutes from my house, it pays well, I only have to work three hours at a time and I work evenings, so AZ can get home to be the dinner/bedtime guy (quality daddy time, right?).   Also, for the most part, it is a low-stress job.  I sit behind a desk, helping students find books.  I don’t have to do dinner dishes and I don’t have to watch anyone grump about how they are “too full for chicken, but not for bread”.  It’s kind of a nice break.

During my last shift, I found this:

There are so many fun resources out there.
