I went to bed around 1:00 a.m.  I got up briefly at 6:30 a.m., but quickly went back to bed.  I went back to sleep and ended up sleeping until 11:30 a.m.  I haven't slept that late in several months.

I have an editing job to do today, and applications to fill out for the home health job and jobs being a support person to intellectually disabled people, but don't really need to leave the house if I don't want to.  It's a good feeling.

Later: I texted a bit with L.B. mid-afternoon, which led to me driving up to meet her and help her a bit with her studies for the LPN program.  Her son was playing video games, and she was studying in a back room.  She had two or three chapters to read assigned per day this week from a very large nursing book, and said that the reading was a lot for her.  L.B. hadn't been in a formal educational setting since she graduated high school twenty years or so ago, so it's been a big shock to her system.

I skimmed the first ten chapters of the book.  L.B. is smart, but isn't a reader.  She said she reads word by word, and she knows I can speedread.  She complained that one of the chapters was 15 pages long.  "I read a hundred pages an hour," I said.  It was more like 150 pages an hour before I started reading on computers and my attention for reading became fragmented, and that was for light reading, but I can still read even academic texts more quickly than many people can, apparently.

Near midnight, I finished the editing job.
