Blogging from A to Z April Challenge- Letter B


 to my second year in the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge.

Since I plan to retire shortly, I thought an alphabetical look back at my paying library career and a look ahead to my crafting and writing career would be a good use of my 26 days in this challenge, 26 wonderful words for retiring me. Hope you enjoy. I am looking forward to reading whatever you share this month on your blogs, too.

Bittersweet- (pleasure mixed with pain or regret.) 
What did I enjoy most at the Library?
  • Availability to books, books and more books. 49 local library's collections at my fingertips.
  • Good friends to discuss life's problems with on a daily basis. We have always been there for each other.
What least?
  • Communication breakdown with the Library Board.
  • The loss of purpose, appreciation and reward.
It is time for me to go.

Looking ahead: 
Blending- (to mix smoothly and inseparably together.)
Once I stop working out of the house, I'll have some work to do blending my life back together. I 'll need to put house cleaning, gardening, crafting and writing together in a way that keeps it all interesting and gives me the sense of purpose and accomplishment that I feel I've lost.

Thanks for stopping by.

I'm excited that you'll soon be doing things you love. Retirement for the past seven years has been great! Like your theme. Enjoy the challenge.

I so envy your library life!

It's all good.

Patience. Just a little longer.

I would miss all those books as well. I have just started writing as my second career. Enjoy.

Thank you everyone for visiting and leaving a note.

Healing, that gives me hope.

Misha, Thanks.

Andrea, up until about 3 years ago, I loved it, too. Not all library work is as stressful as I am finding mine right now. It is a wonderful place to work.

H, 60 days and counting.

DL, Good luck on the writing.
