Thanks everyone for the prayers. My grandmother came out of surgery just fine and is recuperating nicely. I'm glad that the actual surgery is behind us now.
No word yet on the furloughs. I have a feeling that it's going to be a long time ahead yet of uncertainty. We'll persevere.
It's actually *hot* here today, which as you know, is not my favorite weather :) It's sticky, and in the mid 80's. I'm actually wearing a *dress*. This is fairly unprecedented territory for your Catholic Librarian. I don't think I've ever worn a dress to work before. I'm finding that for this weather, I really like it. Much, much cooler. This is from the collection of modest clothes that I blogged about earlier this spring. I have a couple new skirts of the same material that I'm liking as well. It's a Target brand. Maybe Mossismo? At any rate, very flowy and comfortable.
The reason I picked the dress this morning is because the air conditioner in my car appears to have developed an attitude problem. *sighs* I have a feeling that the mechanic bill won't be pleasant, so I'm resisting taking it until after we know more about the furloughs. I mean, air conditioning in my car isn't exactly essential to it's overall performance, so I feel like it's not something that I absolutely have to have. On the other hand, when it gets humid during the day, my car is miserable when I get in it to go home from work, and by the end of the journey my clothes are sticking to me, I'm soaking wet and pretty punchy. *unhappy face* I'm hoping the dress eases the commute later today. I say "commute" when it's actually about 10 minutes, so I'll live. Keeping the windows down helps. *whines* This is good for my soul, I'm certain. Anybody have anything I can offer this suffering up for? :)
