Called Doris at 11:00 AM: Doris had an asthma attack last night, she had to use the nebulizer for 30 minutes to relieve her symptoms. The dogs are well. She liked my class report on Confucius and she said that the article was succinct and well written. She inquired about my laundry duties, I told her I would turn over the laundry duties to Marquez and Tran but I will keep the sewing activities and taking care of the computer room. So essentially turning over the dirty washing laundry duties over, possibly up to 60-72 loads per day. Maybe I get to spend more time on my reading. Went to read at the library to prepare for my ServSafe Examination on Tuesday, finished reading until 2:45 PM. Dinner was served at 3:00 PM.
