Gray Hair

I had a my hair up in a bun and spotted a strand of gray hair from the reflection of the bathroom mirror. I then decided to search for more and found 13 gray strands on the right side of my head! I couldn't find any on the left side. I am 37 years old this year and will turn 38 in 2023.

Mental Acuity

At the age of 74, my mom is still mentally sharp. I noticed recently that she could still give me fairly logical advice on problems I talk about. She seems to enjoy watching YouTube videos from the smartphone I bought her a few years ago to learn about things that interest her. She still gets calls from her salon clients to schedule their haircuts and nail sessions.

Thanksgiving and New Year's

My brother is doing well with his work but did not visit my parents and me this Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's for random reasons. We all, including my sister and her boyfriend, do not approve of my brother's new girlfriend.
