It's been a while since I posted...but life has been a little crazier than normal. My big news is that Friday is my last day at Baldwin Public Library. I've worked there for almost seven years, and it will be sad to leave. But in June I will be starting a new job as librarian at a Montessori preschool in Ann Arbor! I'll only be working two days a week, and I'll be able to bring Evan with me. Plus, we're hoping to move (soon) to the Ypsi/Ann Arbor area, since that's where my family is, and since, with Evan's first birthday (and walking!) fast approaching, our one-bedroom condo seems to be growing ever more crowded.

So that's what's been keeping me busy. For those of you (and I know there are many) who have been checking my blog compulsively for updates, I apologize for the lack thereof lately. :o) I'll try to have some book reviews for you soon!

Winning Streak!

I've won two online giveaways lately, which is very exciting because I thought my winning streak ended way back in 1984 or so when I won a coloring contest at Arbor Drugs and was given $20 to spend on drugstore merchandise (woo-hoo!).
First, I won 3 Charlie Banana cloth diapers (so cute!) and 10 wipes from the Mommy Beta blog. I just got them yesterday so we haven't tried them yet, but I'll report on them once we have.
Second, I won a beautiful signed print by author/artist Grace Lin. I can't wait to frame it and find a special spot for it.
Do you enter blog/online contests? Have you evern won anything? I'm hoping my winning streak continues!
