Now, that I may be able to do... everyone at the library requested time off this month, so August wasn't gonna happen. But i may be able to swing September... and that weekend too... I'll ask at work tomorrow. If I can get it from the library, I can then ask for it off from the store. (and who knows, maybe if the bookstore I just applied to likes me well enough, and is quicker than Multnomah County [argh!] I may have my break between switching right about then... the deadline for applications is tomorrow [and I dropped mine off today], so maybe?)
Either way, I think I can probably do this one... even if i don't buy anything there... it would be fun to hang out. I've been the least problematic with vacation time requests at either place... this'll only be my second request this year... I've been doing good! (one of the librarians has been taking off for all parts unknown practically every month, or so it seems).
So, I'll keep you guys informed of whether i can make it. of course, now I'll have to find a cat-sitter again... my last one moved to SE Portland... she used to live a few blocks away...
