- Human beings are not made to sit for excessively long periods. So says my tailbone, which is sore from intensive sewing/quilting sessions and two 8 hour road trips in two days.
- Erica's heavy social calendar, especially the last few weeks before her move, will probably be the hardest adjustment for her to make. Next will be getting a job, as she has been unemployed for several weeks, having quit her jobs in preparation for the move. Her dad was casually mentioning to the clerk at the hotel upon checking out that we just moved our daughter to AZ and she needed to find a job. The clerk said they needed help there, immediately, as two people had recently left and a third had given two weeks notice, and handed Grant a business card. You never know what a little idle conversation can turn up.
- What is it about traveling that tires you out? You are often just sitting but as soon as you get to your destination, it seems all you want to do is sit or lie down.
- Driving on a two lane highway is an exercise in lane changing. Pass a truck, move back over for a speeder. Pass a truck, move back over for a speeder. We must have done that 200 times each way. This was one of the trucks we passed:
This frightening sight out the front window was actually a Wal Mart truck cab being towed.
- Traffic rant: L.A. freeway drivers. I told Grant that the HOV lane must stand for High On Velocity. So many terrifyingly fast drivers changing lanes and zooming by. It was totally nerve wracking for over two hours until we got out of the county.
- My eldest nephew made the front page of our newspaper today. It was for a good deed and, being Matt, involved animals. Read all about it here.
- It was good to get back to my sewing machine and work on something easy for a change. Last night I pieced the back to my UFO Challenge quilt of the month, and also a few rows of the Kitchen Sink Quilt. Very satisfying!
