Babysitting is what I call it when I have to watch classes without the teacher because we don’t have enough substitutes on campus. Luckily I only had to do it for the last half of the day and the classes were generally good. Babysitting means that I don’t get anything else done thought. So it seemed like a mostly wasted day. Thankfully Matt came today (like he always does on Mondays) and shelved books for me. I’d never get books back on the shelf it I had to do it myself. I really wish I had an assistant. Have I said that before? The district got rid of assistants right before I took my job. I guess I don’t know the difference, but I know that I could be far more productive if I had some help. I sent out a call to elective teachers today that might send me some students to help with the discarded books that have to be marked through.
Mollie and I did go for our walk today. I didn’t walk this weekend like I should have. I was going to go out on Saturday, but I didn’t have enough time after I went to get my inspection sticker and then to the grocery store. Matt and I headed out to my friend’s birthday party after that. We had fun and I drank a bit much. I wasn’t wasted, but nicely buzzed by the time we came home. On Sunday I just wasn’t feeling up for walking. I didn’t really have a hangover – I made sure to drink water throughout the night and in the morning, but I just kind of felt blah.
I’m doing pretty well on my Good Reads Challenge so far. I pledged to read 52 books this year. (A book a week), but I’ve already read five. I should stay ahead when I can because I know there will be long stretches where I don’t have time to do much of anything. Matt is watching the Spurs and I’m goofing off on the computer. I think I might play my addictive word game for a bit and then go watch tv upstairs.
