I got up this morning around 8 o'clock AM. Carol and I did not get to bed till sometime pass 1 o'clock AM. When I got up I made a pot of coffee and ate pancakes.
This morning we are going grocery shopping. The rest of the day is unknown. Right now Carol is sleeping.
Yesterday I left the house around 1 o'clock PM for Grand Rapids. I had eight hours ahead of me before I had to pick up Carol at the Grand Rapids Airport.
