Up late in the morning, but made it to work on time. My shift today was scheduled as the usual noon to 8:00 PM close, but I ended up getting out at 8:30 PM. It was a busy day from the start, and we made some great sales. It slowed down a little bit around 6:00 PM, which was just in time for the owner and me to rearrange the center of the store in preparation for the book signing we had at 7:00 PM. The book signing itself went well. Better than expected, in fact: we had more people than available chairs. The author talked for a while and then signed books up until closing time and even a little after. The owner and I then put the store back in order, and I counted down the register. Turns out, we had another record-breaking day. Not as busy as Small Business Saturday, but still better than anything we've done in years.
The owner gave me a ride home, and as I was too tired to cook anything, queenmomcat and I just raided the fridge for leftovers and other goodies. I've spent the evening since getting home sort of coming down from the day, but I expect I'll be going to bed late because I'm so wired. Oh well. I work tomorrow, but I don't actually have to open the store, so I can sleep in late.
