Sometimes it's unpleasant teaching a class, especially when the participants don't want to be there.
But sometimes it's delightful. When the students are motivated to learn and are alert and participating, the day flies by. It's exhilarating. And exhausting.
A sign of advancing age: I was pretty well wiped out by the end of the day on Monday, especially after Sunday's hotel room problems and lack of sleep.
I had dinner at the hotel, crashed, watched House, went to the drug store to get some allergy eye drops, crashed again, and awoke at 5 am.
I'm still not sleeping well. I attribute that to a missing missus. I'm also used to a protective ring of two cats on the bed and four shelties around it. I feel so... exposed.
The Essential Forgotten Item this trip: cell phone charger. Fortunately, I have the car charger and the trip between the hotel and customer site is enough to keep the phone topped off.
Into the shower, then the fray. I skipped breakfast yesterday. Not going to make that mistake again today. Or, at least, I'm going to make certain to load up on coffee.
