Mental Health Day

I was off work today and had what I will term a badly needed "mental health" day. I slept in until 11:30 and then did nothing but listen to NPR and read. I had a made a rule that today was truly a break and that I was not going to deal with local SLA things or anything of a professional nature. It felt good being able to do that.

This is the first time in a few weeks where I've felt like things were slowing down a bit and I got a chance to breath. I've posted about this before, so I'll just say it again. I have been so much busier than I ever was when I was in graduate school.

Since the day is almost over, I'm going to break my earlier rule a bit and tout a program I'm planning for the central Ohio chapter of the Special Libraries Association that seems timely (no pun intended) for me of late.

"Time Management for Special Librarians" will be presented by Judith Siess at OCLC next Thursday, April 19th at 6 p.m. After the presentation, a group of us will have dinner in Dublin. Additional details are available on the chapter's Web site. Hope to see you there!

I know how you feel. Until I got my job, I didn't feel I had the right to truly relax. Now, I will be able to enjoy weekends and evenings (when I am not so exhausted.)
