Thankful Thursday #6

29 Mar

I am most recently thankful for my libraries.  Yes – plural. I use both the library on JBER (Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson) and the library in the Municipality of Anchorage. Each library has some things the other can’t get so that is why I utilize both.  I kinda laughed at myself while chatting with my friend Martha today. I have gotten so lazy that I place a hold on all things I want from the library so I can jut run in and come out without killing hours at a time.  Doesn’t mean I still don’t do that occasionally – but not near as much as I used to.  Wait so is that being lazy or smart?

I am also thankful that I can check out DVD’s and CD’s from the library. Since I am trying to find ways to save more money than normal so I can eat better (Cassandra don’t say anything about the donuts I had this morning – oh wait) this really helps me.  I like to listen to one CD for like a week at a time and then I am good with just catching it on the radio.  This sure beats paying for it and then casting it to the side for the rest of eternity!

Fun Fact – Did you know that there are more libraries in the US than McDonald’s?

I am hoping to wrap up my 20 book challenge as a success – I have not updated my book list or my Goodreads.com account.  That i honestly suck at. Forgive me if you follow me!

I am also thankful that the library has story time every Saturday at 1:30 pm – they  have cool chairs that make the kids want to sit and listen. It also gives me a little bit of a break to sit and listen as well! Barnes and Noble also has a story time on Tuesdays at 7:00 pm where the kiddos can wear their pajamas while they listen. They actually call it “Pajamarama” which I find totally cool 🙂  These story times also give me a chance to get the kids out of the house so Nick can have quiet time to study.

    It’s being smart! 😉

    20 ain’t happening here, which is so sad because 20 was my idea. :-/

    I cannot take my kids to Barnes & Noble any more. Enjoy that while you can.

    That is being smart. 😉

    20 isn’t happening here, and that is sad since I put out the challenge for 20. :-/

    My kids’ tastes have gotten way too expensive to take them to Barnes & Noble. Enjoy taking them now. 🙂

    More libraries in the US than McDonalds’? Seriously? Never would have thought that. Maybe because a lot of little towns have libraries and no McDonald’s. We take the kids to the library twice a month. They love it. Gotta cultivate that love of reading and when they get to choose their own FREE 😉 books, I’m all for that – heh. Although I really like books with pictures…I guess they call those magazines….

    I MISS having a good library! I loved our library in Washington… I went every week, and the kids loved it too. I used to put everything on hold too! 🙂

    I absolutely hate the Sanford library. 😦
