Thrive #BlogHerWritingLab

When I read this week’s prompts for the #BlogherWritingLab I knew exactly what I would share for May 16th(albeit a little late).

May 16, 2016 Prompt: What was the last thing your borrowed? If you still have it, snap a picture.
I don’t often borrow things from anyone.  I hate the feeling of being in-debt to someone so I often just find a way of getting what I want/need without have to bother anyone for it.  Although since Miss S has entered our life I’ve been more willing to borrow stuff from my parents and in laws to make life easier.
The feeling of having words, stories, quotes and wisdom at my fingertips is exhilarating *adjusts nerdy glasses*.  And because of that I’ve always had an unhealthy obsession with my local library LOL
I borrow all sorts of books.  Some I zip through in a matter of days and some sit on my nightstand and are constantly renewed (or not returned which means I end up racking up a serious fine).

I recently borrowed this book (okay about a month ago) based on recommendations.  Unfortunately I don’t think I will be able to read the entire book – but I do plan to skim and read sections that are interesting to me.
When I was on Mat Leave, Miss S and I would hit the library DAILY.  I’d make sure to borrow 5-10 board books that we’d read to her and I know she really enjoyed it.  I’ve tried to continue this as much as possible since going back to the 9-5 so we try to squeeze in some time every other weekend.   When we are there, she says hello to the kids (or “no, my tuurn”), plays with the puzzles, picks some books and patiently waits while mom looks around as well.  :)
