On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I post a picture and just a few words.
That’s what I have to remind myself of when I have a book or two overdue.
My gut reaction to seeing that a book is nearly overdue: “Oh, I really have to get that book back before I get a fine!”.
But then I remind myself that I’m gonna spend a lot more than $0.25 cents in gas by making a special trip to the library.
It’s easy to forget about the hidden costs of driving when the fine is right there in black and white. At least, it is for me!
(Now, that time when I had 88 books overdue because of headlice? That was worth a trip to the library right then and there.)
P.S. I do renew my books online all the time, but sometimes I can’t because I’ve renewed them too many times, or because someone else has a hold on the book.
P.P.S. Lisey and I posted a recipe for Skillet Apple Crisp over on her blog. Easy, and it makes just the right amount for our family!
