So today marks the 92nd day this school year for me to fill in for someone. I've now done almost 800 days in seven glorious years of substituting since my retirement. The income was important to us until I reached social security age and now it's extra for out trips and such. I still like kids and feel of some value to them, so I go on.

So, I'm the media person as she is on a three day trip with 8th graders to investigate nature. My job is simply to supervise computer work of kids preparing a power point presentation for later this semister. I have finished a Jeffery Deaver mystery yesterday and plan on starting a Mary Higgins Clark one today. Haven't read her yet but my wife has and recommends her to me. Kinda hope I don't like her as there are about 20-25 more of her waiting if I do.

Not my most fun thing to do. There you have it-- my life with kids.

Finished Mary Higgins Clark and liked it. Just another suspense writer for me to peruse.

BTW AZ-- this has always been the tuffest time of the year in school. Kids have determined as they always do that May is a month too much and are unmotivated as can be. I don't like working after May 15 and will do very little the rest of the way. I'm luckier cause I can say no and smile to myself.
