On Saturday I checked off another thing on my 14 in 2014 list – getting a library card! This has been on my mental to-do list for around five years. Shame on me for not attending to it sooner! Thanks to the book club I am in, I have been reading even more than normal this year, which prompted me to get my act together.
Growing up we practically lived at Helmerich Library, especially in the summer. I have memory after memory of summer reading lists and sitting on the floor with my mom and sister selecting our favorite books. It was really a neat experience to go back into the same library and register there.
To make the story even better…I almost had to leave and come back. Forgetting that my driver’s license still has our old address, I did not come prepared to prove my Tulsa county residence. Defeated, I went back to the car and discovered an Ulta coupon! I unashamedly went back in and asked if, in conjunction with my license, it would work. They took pity on me and let me sign-up. Mission accomplished thanks to my beauty habit!
