Rough Weekend Coming Up

As you all know, the big “official” reveal of Smoky Days and Sleepless Nights is noon to 5 p.m. this Saturday, at the Albion Fire Department’s 125th anniversary celebration. (July 20th)

            You probably don’t know that my request for a day off was denied, and then last week I was assigned mandatory overtime: So I’m working from 11 p.m. Friday night until 11 a.m. Saturday, then going straight to the Central Noble School campus to get set up for the book signing. Then I have to go back in to work Saturday night. This is totally unconnected to my desire to someday write full time for a living.

            The show will go on, with apologies for bags under the eyes, yawning, or constant caffeine consumption. However, come in to get your book early: If things slow down later in the afternoon, I might leave a little early to catch up on sleep. If that happens, I’ll leave signed copies behind for sale (and they’ll always be available later, of course).

            Don’t forget also that everything going on outside will slow down from 1-2 p.m., for the official dedication inside the CN Auditorium. If there’s bad weather, the lobby of that building will host the book signing and registration. Hope to see you all there!

Ouch. Mandatory overtime? Ouch again.

I hope that everything goes well despite it. :)

I think I can make it through -- at least, until my next shift Saturday night!

Oh that is really mean - especially when it is about the fire service. Presumably they thought you should look the Sleepless Nights bit!

Well, dispatch is a part of the Sheriff's Department rather than the fire department - not to mention I don't think my immediate supervisor cares about anyone's problems outside of work. I'm not sure she cares for volunteer firefighters, either.

Yeah, that pretty much covers it. I could use the money, but it's been many years since I've stayed up the better part of 48 hours straight before.

You got this!

Heh. Well, the good news is that I've been too busy to worry about it!
