Day In The Life – Monday

6:30 – Alarm goes off, dogs go outside, I go under the shower. Dressed and out the door by 7:20, coffee in hand by 7:30
7:40am – come in to work, turned on computer, listened to voice mail
8-9am – Opened Firefox for email, blogs & Spicework’s desktop monitor, Chrome for work blogs & Tweetdeck for work & personal Twitter accounts, check email, write blog post on book groups, fix Spicework’s inventory mistakes
9am – go get weighed for “Biggest Loser” program at my library. Go outside and quietly cry about the results.
9:15am – 10:30am – add personnel requisition forms to staffweb, read through blog headlines, fix MySpace filtering issue so that patrons and staff can again connect to their MySpace buddies
10:20 – 10:27 – write this up, take a break
10:30am – call back to filtering vendor, read some library/twitter related stuff coming through my Tweet stream
10:45am – 11am – back to email, forwarded a couple of web site comments to the appropriate person, started working on June Board meeting minutes to post on the public website
11am – 11:30 – talked to Assistant Director about social software stats for the Board Report, talked to Automation Manager about possible Netlibrary issue, headed across the street to talk to coworker about flaky computer
11:44 – back from installing video card in computer & chatting with co-worker, checking on Netlibrary download that caused problem for patron and re-checking email. Somehow lost my bottle of water in the running around and have to get another one from my in-office fridge. Oh how I love having a refrigerator in my office!!
12:00 – uploaded IP Address spreadsheet to Google to share with Tech Support Coordinator (pretty color-coded sections of IPs didn’t come through the upload – had to redo the colors before I shared…) and started writing up ALA trip report for Board Report due next week
12:03-12:07 – discussed another missing form and the contact list on the staffweb with the HR manager, then back to writing up my trip report
12:30 – added new job ad to both staff and public websites & checked email – again
12:45 – Lunchtime!! (though after seeing the outrageously huge number from this morning, lunch will be a salad and diet coke…)
2pm – back from lunch – spent 15 min in the library parking lot talking to ex-boss & current State Library Network Admin & got hot lead on cheap hardware for the library – that counts as work time! Now to start working on the template issues I’m having with the new website…
3:35pm – have the front module downloaded and installed and have read up on how to use it. My brain hurts, so it’s break time!
3:43 – taking a moment to check emails and such before delving into Drupal themes and multiple CSS files, not really sure I have it in me to do actual CSS work today…
4:15 – interrupted (happily) by coworker – since I wasn’t getting anywhere with the CSS, this is a good thing
4:25 – check Tweetdeck, email and blogs one last time before logging out, finish up this blog post.
4:30 – off for the day to pick up my son by 5pm, then to Hy-Vee for chinese buffet (because he can eat his weight in egg rolls) and then home to finish up last homework for my class and turn it in. I plan to be in bed, asleep, by 8pm or so…

More tomorrow!
