technology marches on, right across my fingers
You know what our newish library has? Scanners for self check-out. It’s very handy, and much quicker.
Last night, since Mark was feeling awful, I took L to karate class. I didn’t stay for the class, partially because we wanted to see if she’d be more focused without us there. I came back for the last 15 minutes or so, because I wanted to see her punching and kicking and such.
In good news, she’s testing for her yellow belt on Thursday! Go, girl.
So what to do in boring, podunk, all-stores-closed-at-6-pm downtown for 40 minutes or so? Ahh, yes, the library. Not that I’ve had much time to read, lately, but I live in hope.
I picked up a few promising new releases by authors that I like. Maybe I’ll have time to read them this time – the last several trips to the library have resulted in a pile of books that were returned, unread, and often late! Bad library patron.
But this was cool – they now offer biometric scanners, so I don’t even have to carry my library card any more! I am so taking Lauren to sign up for that, because she can’t seem to hang onto a library card. I’m pretty sure she’s lost her second one. For her, because kids change so quickly, she’ll have to be re-scanned every 6 months to a year.
But still – she’s not likely to lose her finger! Is she?????
