library card and Cancun trip

I got an Orem library card today! One part of the process that struck fear in my heart occurred when the librarian told me that this library does not have a read-down-your-fines program. I am just going to have to learn how to return books on time, I guess. I don’t know if I can do it, but ┬áit’s either that or I need to budget for beans and rice every night since the rest of our budget will be taken up by library fines.

My final in class went well tonight! I have two more finals next week. Tonight we had to make French bread, sweet tart dough, and eclaire paste. My eclairs and Paris brests were not great, but I accidentally made my dough too runny, so they were the best I could eek out of what I had to work with.

I also forgot to take pictures today. I could have taken more sunrise shots since Lydia came into my room and watched the “show” with me, but it looked a lot like yesterday. I’m not tired of it yet, but I don’t know if the camera would have captured anything remarkably different.

Oh, and I forgot to say congratulations to Abe! He won a work contest, so he and I get to go to a resort in Cancun for five days next month. At first we were concerned about what to do with our kids, but Tom and Suzanne agreed to watch them today, and we are so grateful. Abe has just done an amazing job at his job, and I’m so proud of him. It was a big risk switching to Qualtrics for him, but he’s just worked so ridiculously hard. In fact, he’s exhausted, so I need to stop blogging and let the poor exhausted man rest!
