I went to bed a little after midnight and woke at 9:30 a.m.

I see Dr. L. in a bit.

I saw a doe and two fawns in the backyard.  Dad and I yelled at them to "shoo!"  They bounded a few yards away.

After I saw Dr. L., I went to the grocery store, the library, Walmart, and the dollar store.  The trips were pretty productive.  Later, Mom and I went out and about, she to pick up a book from a church book group member, me to ride along.  We tried at the library, but the spaces were still all filled.  I returned the rest of the books that were due that day in the bookdrop.  Mom and I picked up dinner at Wendy's.

Mom was freaked out because she'd seen what she thought was a giant bug in the living room.  She saw something else or two something elses in the family room.  One of the things turned out to be a mouse.  It ran when Mom screamed.

I called J. to tell him about Mom's travails.  I was just going to leave a message, but he answered and we talked for a while.

Later, Mom saw the mouse when she was in the bathroom.  Her screams were blood-curdling.

A couple of hours later, I saw the mouse or one of its relatives by the stove.  I was on the other side of the kitchen.  While Dad and I discussed what to do, it ran under the oven.  Dad thrashed around under there with a flyswatter, saying that maybe that would scare it.  He also set mousetraps, which I think were more likely to be helpful.

Mostly, though, when I wasn't driving around the area, I read e-books.
