Well, I think everything is back to our idea of normal now. In ways that’s good, in other ways it’s a huge bummer.
Had to take Drew to the library yesterday to search for some books to use in his research paper. Of course, his topic is technology related. . .
And his professor wants him to have at least one hard-copy resource.
We are still waiting to hear from the professor to find out if online copies of past periodicals will count as a “hard-copy resource”. Because, if not, he’s hurting for a resource in print. We did find one book in the juvenile section, and it provides a fair amount of information, but Drew is not at all happy about using a juvenile book for his college paper.
‘Course, he’s never been happy whenever he saw me give him a book marked with a “J” either. Even though I told him, many times, that it was the best resource I could find on the topic.
The big problem for him is that, since he’s doing a technological paper, his best resources will be online or archived techy magazine articles (also found online).
You know, because our library doesn’t have such a thing as a micro – fiche reader. . .
Isn’t that funny! My kids have never seen such a thing!
I’m still moving forward on my Am. History book. Of course, “forward” is relative. I feel like I’m bouncing like a slammed raquet ball. Anyway, a form of progress was made yesterday. . . (I’m at that point where any little thing is looked upon as a God-send.)
And, on that note, I need to get this day started and moving. . .
