Paul Neyron rose 2

Saturday so far

I couldn't get to sleep Friday night, and ended up finally falling asleep at 5:30 or 6:00 a.m.  I slept until 1:00 p.m., then napped for half an hour after breakfast, which would make it eight hours.  I would have much preferred falling asleep at 2:00 a.m.  I tried for an hour between 3:00 a.m. and 4:00 a.m. to go to sleep.

I eventually went out shopping with Mom.  We went to a K-Mart (a discount retail store).  I got a couple of blouses.  We stopped at the grocery store and got a few non-perishables, then went to the local Goodwill.  I got a skirt there.  All in all, it was a pretty productive shopping trip for me.

We stopped at a Wendy's (fast food place) and got dinner to go.  They nearly left out the chili that went with the salad I'd ordered, and they did leave out Dad's hamburger, as we found when we got home.  The last couple of times they left out the chili, which was why we double-checked this time.  They charged for the hamburger.  Dad called the phone number on the receipt.  He didn't want to go out to get his burger, though.  He said maybe he'd try to get it tomorrow.

I had brought an e-reader with me, and read some of Pressure Head.  I may get back to that tonight.

Much later: I finished up Pressure Head.  I enjoyed it.  It was a good mix of romance and murder mystery.

I talked to A.C. for about 20 minutes.  We're planning on getting together Sunday afternoon.
