A very busy and tiring day today, starting with getting up early for subbing. I was actually feeling pretty crappy this morning, but I went in anyways. This time of year, the school are always short subs, and I don't want to screw them over. Anyways, I was a history teacher in the high school to our south today. Although the regular teacher's instructions were a little confused, and although some of the materials I needed weren't left in an obvious place, it was a reasonably good day. I got through it fine, in any case, and the students were great.
Back home, I spent a little time online, and then I walked over to the book store for the second half of my day. I worked from 5:00 PM to 9:30 PM, and it was the evening of one of our regular "Top Twenty and an Author" events. I presented my books okay, although I have the feeling I may have lost the audience on one or two of them, but that's par for the course. After that, our guest author did her thing, and she was very good. We certainly sold a lot of her books afterwards. At the end of the night, the owner kindly gave me a ride home, which I needed.
I'm off to bed late tonight, but I have tomorrow off so it shouldn't be a problem. I won't have any last-minute subbing assignments -- I designated the day as a no-work day with the subbing system -- so I can sleep in and relax, which I need. These last few weeks have been busy ones, for sure.
