chipmunk

Mostly normal day

Got to work on time, discovered we were short staffed again, though that was alleviated when the boss showed up instead of going to the branches where she had been scheduled. I did the gaming program with the teens, it went pretty well.

After work things got a little less normal. The Kid texted just before we closed and asked if she could call; I told her to call after I got out, and she did. So we talked, she is worried and unhappy.

Then I went to the Target I pass on my way home, and from experience I know there is no connection there because it's essentially underground. So I got off the phone with her, and quickly went shopping for something for Aunt Helen's birthday, which we are celebrating along with Middle Brother's and Denise's on Saturday. I found something that would have been absolutely perfect in a size larger, but the only had one left, so I got it, and got a gift receipt. So she should be able to get a kick out of it no matter what, and if it doesn't fit it can be returned. I also got cards and wrapping paper and a gift card for Denise, and something for [personal profile] mashfanficchick, who has her birthday in May.

Then I got out and tried to Skype the FWiB. We had no luck until I restarted my phone. Then we got through and talked on my way home, and again when I got here, though not for very long.

After that I had dinner, then caught up with things on line, and then went to the bedroom to read on my new Nook.

And that has bee the day.
