Lady of Shalott update
Here's my progress on Lady of Shalott. I did get a fair amount done this past month. I even managed to stitch on it in the truck driving to Ohio. That took some doing!
Trip to Ohio: We drove from Texas to Akron for Matt's 20-year class reunion. He didn't graduate there because his mom moved to Texas right before his senior year. Still, he did grow up with these people, and they were happy to see him. I had a really good time. It was great to meet them, and I was completely comfortable with them, something that doesn't happen often for me. I really could see becoming good friends with some of them. We also saw Matt's best friend and his old girlfriend, which I also enjoyed. Oh, not to mention one of my best friends from high school, Becky. It's one of the few trips we've taken just to see people, and it was one of the best I've ever had. I hope we can get back up there again soon. It also made me realize that my 25th class reunion is coming up. Now I didn't much like many of the people I went to high school with, but I would like to see my friends again.
Lufy: The day before the trip, Lufy refused to eat and had trouble breathing. We decided it was time to put her to sleep. I couldn't bear to watch her die, so I let the vet be there for her. I was really grateful that they treated her right. She was out of it by the time we left her, so I know she wasn't afraid. Matt and I are still mourning our sweet dog. It never gets any easier.
