I went to sleep around the usual time, and woke up at 4:00 a.m., which has been my usual over the past several weeks. I remember that I used to be able to sleep eight hours or more at a stretch, and miss that. I went back to sleep after a while, and woke up at least another couple of times before getting up for the day around 11:00 a.m.
Dad came in from mowing the lawn while I was having brunch, and said his usual thing he says when he sees I've gotten up. "Is it noon already?"
"Yes," I said. It was 11:55 a.m., but close enough.
I had an appointment (via video). We managed to connect, although sometimes the picture froze and sometimes our voices fuzzed out.
After that, I went out on errands. I stopped at Walgreens and found some things I wanted on sale, so that was good. I got gasoline for my car, which I'd been needing to do for a few days. I walked around and looked at the flowers after I got home. I made Mom cut my bangs, with interesting results. I don't have bangs anymore now, actually, but they grow out again fast enough. I cut Mom's hair. Perhaps I should have told her to take out the bobby pin keeping some of it out of her eyes before I cut it. I'm curious to see what it turns out to look like without the bobby pin.
I went in and looked in the mirror in the powder room to see the results. "I told you I wouldn't be any good at cutting hair!" Mom said. Fair enough. My bangs will grow out again quickly enough. I tried trimming to make what was left in the front and on the sides more even. I'm not expert either.
