Mighty Fine Donations

Do you make donations to your local library in the disguise of fines?

I do.

I owe over $7.00 in fines right now. The highest I've paid so far has been $20.00, which is even more than the $17.00 I paid for the book Duke destroyed.

The thing is, I really have no excuse (especially since now there is no Duke). I can renew my items online. What is my problem? How hard is that?

Not too hard to do, just pretty darn hard to remember apparently.

I'm right there with you! We got some board books for H last spring, and I wanted to disinfect them before she looked at them. A tip: Lysol is akin to glue. All the pages stuck together, so we are now the proud owners of 4 chunks of cardboard, and we have $36 less to put toward H's college fund! All for a good cause, though, right?

It must be genetic - you get it from your "Aunt E." Oh wait! We're not blood... Well, anyway, I am TERRIBLE about library books. In fact, I finally just quit going because it was so embarrassing. Now "Uncle J" reads his books downloaded onto his phone, the kids buy online and I just read the wonderful blogs of "you young folk." :-)

J and I both love reading your comments on Smackie. And we think you're wonderful! So don't worry about the library thing.
