My very favourite mug

I thought I'd put a picture of my favourite mug up here. I went back to school when my youngest went into grade two, and I was really scared to be going back. I worked like crazy for two years, studying during the kids' music and dance lessons, writing essays around the campfire while the rest of the family roasted marshmallows, doing research while waiting for the laundry to come out of the dryer and so on. But it paid off and I got this mug when I graduated from college at the top of my class with a 4.23 GPA! It was my "you did it!" present to myself!

Being a "geeky" library person, this cup is perfect for me. It's kind of hard to tell from the quality of the picture, but the back of the mug has the Dewey Decimal number for coffee as well as the "copy" information for it. It's my favourite too because it's sort of symbolic for me. It reminds me of how working hard really paid off and how I realized that I could be really good at something as well it reminds me of how far I've come!

Wow, I'm so impressed you did school with kids! We put off having our first by a year so I could finish up; I couldn't imagine doing it now. Way to go!
