Mom notes

We got a shower head the other day - 10 minutes in a hot shower is worth more than 40 minutes in a warm tub.  I'm enjoying it quite a bit - saves time and actually stay warm!   I'm also doing an exercise routine, and trying to keep my calories down.  I have tomorrow off, and Esme wants to go see a friend.  We'll see if we can link that together with Grandma's shopping.

I'm reading The Other Log of Phileas Fogg.  Strange.  Very strange.
