In general, I use email for communication over SMS. I think it’s because when texting became a thing I was too old to natively adapt but too young to need to communicate with babysitters or older children.
The point is, I don’t naturally text. However, I am starting to wish my work email had some of the same features such as a quick thumbs up when I just want to positively acknowledge a response.

Today is my day to watch the kids at Worldcon. However, all of us stayed up way too late for the #HugoAwards I’m tired enough I almost walked out of the house without my glasses. I am super lucky that the kids don’t seem grouchy yet.
I’ve reached the point in packing for a trip where I’m agonizing over print vs ebook. I’m mostly resigned to ebook for myself but I really prefer physical picture books for my youngest on the plane. Except, they are heavy and awkwardly sized. I’m contemplating trying a highly illustrated chapter book instead (adult reading level but kid story level).

Our catalogers have an authority merge problem so for the last couple of days I’ve been reading anything I can find about Horizon authorities. I’m coming away with more questions than answers.
(Overall, I don’t like how Sierra stored authority records but their overlay options seem like they’re a lot more sophisticated.)
