Monday so far

I started nodding off in a chair at 7:30 p.m. Sunday night, and switched to bed at 8:30 p.m.  I got up a few times at night, but officially got up for the day at 9:00 a.m.  I guess I was tired.

I went to my exercise program.  The instructor, E., was elsewhere in the building.  I did the exact routine I'd done last time.  When I got on the treadmill, I started to converse with a senior citizen next to me.  We talked about Tyler Arboretum, Longwood Gardens, cities in southeastern Pennsylvania, Baltimore, military history, and how he and Dad were both Vietnam veterans.  It turned out that when I wasn't reading the Kindle and walking on the treadmill at the same time, I didn't get dizzy, so that was something of note.  I checked in with E. and then headed home.

Later, Dad and I went with Mom when she went to see the audiologist.  She wasn't sure if her left hearing aid was in correctly, but the audiologist said it was.  They practiced putting the hearing aids in and taking them out.  I watched so I could see what they looked like if they were in right.  It's more that it's a big shock to Mom's system to be able to hear noises she couldn't before, and to hear noises that she thought were soft turn out to be quite loud noises.  She needs to relearn the auditory processing that came naturally to her.

I watched the latest Big Gay Fiction podcast.  This week was Jay Bell.  I have Something Like Summer deep in my TBR pile.

I texted with J., A., and L.B.  L.B. and I are talking about getting together Friday to practice sign language.
