Not One, but Two!

Finally, a semblance of normalcy after the hectic month of July. I've finished my class and have returned home. It is so nice to be back! However, I do believe I'm a bit changed - I am now left-turn challenged. After cruising the city of Norfolk, VA for a week (without trying to, BTW), I think I have lost some of my ability to make left turns. Let me explain. There appears to be a conspiracy to anyone trying to make a left turn anywhere there. Yep - not too many. Heaven forbid that you miss the one and only turn left and need to turn around. You will travel a few miles before this is possible. No U-turns and no left turn signs abound in the bustling city. We toured many a sight before finding the pot of gold - the proverbial left turn. You can even go down another road in hopes of turning there to go back the opposite way on the first road. No left turns there either. It got to be the joke among our friends in the class. Now we consider ourselves handicapped on the road! JK, of course; Norfolk is a nice place and we enjoyed the city. Class was good, but sleep deprivation reigned supreme. I slept 14 hours when I got home Sat. evening. I think that's a record for me.
Well, now to the REAL news - we're having not one wedding, but two! My son became engaged to his sweetheart last week and he's getting married in the spring. One Sept., one March - it will be busy. However, we're so happy with whom they're marrying, we're dancing for joy. We love them all and couldn't be happier for them. Now to survive...... :)
My stitching took a nosedive this whole month, but I've been able to pick it up some this week and finish a small item for my Secret Sister. Then on to the endless choices - work on a UFO or start something new? Or do both!
