Tam's Googling adventure

So, we decided to go to Savannah for Memorial Day weekend and it really sucked. I'm a fan of Paula Dean and was really looking forward to going to her main "Lady and Sons" restaurant in Savannah. Unfortunately, Paula Dean's restaraunt was not what I expected at all (it was really crapy looking on the outside) and we didn't get to eat there because they fry everything in peanut oil so I didn't want to chance Den getting sick. We then went to the Savannah Candy Kitchen and got some salt water taffy, fudge and other stuff. It was a cute shop and we also had a chance to watch taffy being made which was cool to see.Historic Savannah made me feel like we were in New Orleans before Katrina came. All the old historic buildings had been gutted and replaced with cramped businesses which is so not good if you're clastrophic.

We then went to Tybee Island to go to the beach but there was no where not park at all. We did find a cool old fort (Fort Pulaski) to visit an…

A Sucky Memorial Day Weekend

Happy Memorial Day!

I realize this is pretty cheesy, but I just wanted to wish my readers a happy and safe memorial day!

Spring Grades

I'm happy to report I got an A in my Materials and Services for Adults class and an B in my Introduction to Library and Information Science class. I'm now that much closer to getting my Masters in Library Science.

Yay me!!

Father daughter bonding

Just came from hanging out with my dad. It was actually nice and we got to get a lot of things out in the open about my past and his past.

I brought him my scrapbook, high school yearbooks, and literary magazines as a way for him to see what him missed out on in reference to my childhood. He read my poetry and complimented the amount of talent I should through my work.

I asked some tough questions and he gave me answers that I may not have wanted to hear but I needed to hear. It was just nice to talk to him and feel like I matter to him. I really enjoyed having a chance to talk to him without being angry at him.

Well at any rate, I feel that today was a great start in order to build a relationship with my dad.

The times, they are a changing

Dad stopped by the job today to deliver info. for the first ever family reunion on his side. It's weird how that worked out considering that I've been planning to call him for sometime now but haven't had a chance to but when I finally did, he said he was pulling into the library parking lot since he was returning from a doctor's appointment.

I feel bad I'm not gonna get to go to the reunion because I'm working that weekend. He also told me he's getting a divorce from his wife to which I don't really know what my reaction was supposed to be. I asked if he was sad. He said no, so I said congrats instead. I asked if he was planning on staying here after the divorce and he said he thinks he will. I told him he should. I hope he understands what I meant by that.....that I want him to stay....I've just started to want to get to know him and it would really suck if he moved away.

In reference to school, classes are over and I am waiting with baited brea…
