"Bad" is the wrong word for it--"busy" would be better, but very busy. I got short sleep last night, of course, and am looking forward to the same tonight; I'm currently making supper and trying to nail down whatever tasks still need to be done before trying to get a nap before another drive, nap, drive night. I had several important tasks out in the world which were accomplished today, so that's positive, but I'm going to run out of steam before tomorrow if I don't get a bit of rest. However, the respiratory tract symptoms are subsiding, so that's good.
I promised at some point that Bob Slade not only would return (which he has) but would be reunited with some old friends. That happens in For Better or Verse; Chapter 7, Slade 45. I won't spoil it more than that.
That's how tired I am: I forgot http://www.mjyoung.net/stories/novel03/III007.html the link.
