I went to bed around 1:00 a.m. and woke at 9:00 a.m., so that wasn't too bad.

I have lots of little errands to do today.

I went to bed before midnight, I think.  I got up at 9:00 a.m., which wasn't bad.

I worked.  Since I didn't have to go anywhere afterward, it was a laundry day and a shopping day.

Sunday -- Veterans Day

I went to sleep around midnight, and got up briefly early in the morning.  I went back to sleep and got up for the day at 10:20 a.m., which is no good as far as getting to work goes.

Mom had gone to church, but Dad has bronchitis and was still in bed.  I mentioned to him that soon it would be the eleventh hour of the eleventh day, one hundred years after Armistice Day.  Then I wondered if it was the British eleventh hour, or if U.S. East Coast time counted too.

We didn't go out for lunch, but had lunch at home.  Shortly after lunch, we watched a DVD of "The Post," which focused a lot on the Pentagon Papers and the freedom of the press.  It seemed quite timely to the present day, although an odd movie to watch on Veterans Day.

After that, I did an editing job.  We went out for dinner.  Applebee's is one of the restaurants that offers vets a free dinner.  We enjoyed our meals.

I'll probably try to go to bed relatively early.  I'm reading a book called Everything Trump Touches Dies, and it's pretty entertaining.  It's cleverly written, and frightening.  The author writes like he talks.

Saturday

I went to bed around 1:00 a.m., after taking a new brand of melatonin.  I got up briefly in the early morning, but went back to bed.  I got up again at 11:00 a.m.  I've got to take that melatonin earlier.

I stopped by briefly at B. and R.'s, and talked to home health aide B.  I stopped at Staples to return labels, and then at a grocery store.  I have plans to meet up with L.B. in the afternoon.

Later: I grabbed a late lunch/snack at home, got gasoline and then headed up to L.B.'s neck of the woods.  I helped her study the nutrition section of her LPN course's first semester.  I went to a restaurant up there after studying, and then headed home.

Friday

I am scheduled to work.  I'll be going in in an hour or so.

Later: Work was busy, but not bad.  The new housekeeper for B. and R.'s floor came kind of late, when B.'s visiting nurse was there.  He couldn't really work in B.'s room as far as vacuuming and dusting, but he cleaned the bathroom and mopped the kitchen floor and vacuumed the living room and hallway, so that was all good.  I forgot to ask him to bring towels, and B. called later and bitched me out for that.

I made it to Friday Night Friends.  It was a night in, art with S., the art teacher.  We had a mix of buttons in bowls to glue on canvas.  I did a pattern of pink, purple and blue.  I like the low-key nights when we have a quiet activity to do and can talk amongst ourselves.  YMCA-K. talked with us about possible activities for the next session.  It was nice to see the other folks in the group.

I worked.  It was a laundry day, but it wasn't bad.  I got a good bit accomplished.

After work, I watched CNN in the evening.

I got my glasses fixed and Mom, Dad and I voted.  I stayed up way too late watching election results.

Our power went off during the night, spoiling all our attempts to change the time.  My glasses broke, and it's raining.  I woke up at 9:00 a.m. that I guess felt like 10:00 a.m., but I was up a few times during the night.  I have a doctor's appointment to see what can be done about my hands.

Later: I worked for a while, and then went to the doctor.  The GP Dr. K. prescribed an ointment, and told me to get another over-the-counter ointment, and to wear cotton gloves over my hands once they were suitably lotioned up.  I picked up takeout from Mandarin Express on my way to pick up the prescription.  When I got to the store, I settled in to wait for the prescription and eat lunch.  I got groceries after that, and stopped home briefly.  I went back out to do a bit more work for B. and R., but that was only about another half an hour.  It's just depressing that it gets dark so soon.  It was dark by 4:30 p.m. today, but part of that was the rain.

It wasn't a great day, but it wasn't too bad, either.

Sunday

I got up at what would have been 8-something in the morning, but with the time change is 7-something.  Dad and I changed the majority of the clocks.  Mom knew how to change the time on the clock in my car, since it had formerly been her car.

I'm not sure what I'm going to do today.  It's not as nice out as it was yesterday.

In the afternoon, Mom and I got to the university library and I returned my books before they got overdue.  That felt like kind of a big accomplishment, considering I wasn't feeling that ambitious.  The weather was cooler than yesterday, but clear.  With enough layers on, I was quite comfortable.

Later on, I caught up on e-mail and such.  I talked to A. for over an hour.
