And the hits just keep on comin'...

So, the wedding was nice. Real pretty, a lot of fun. I don't have any pictures yet but when I do, I'll post some.

On Tuesday, while I was on my way back to NC, I apparently fell asleep at the wheel and wrecked my car somewhere along I-95 in Georgia, near mile-marker 13 or 15, I think.
I remember feeling tired and thinking I needed to get off at the next exit. After that, the next thing I can remember is I opened my eyes and had started going into the center lane a little, so I quickly steered to the left. Between rain, brand new tires, and loose steering, I swerved too far, so I steered back to the right to correct it, then I thought, "Oh no, I'm loosing control of my car." and that's the last thing I remember until I woke up and there was a woman outside my window telling me not to move, that the paramedics were on their way.

I was going to share pictures of my car and of my beautiful face -- a nice Halloween costume, too bad it's three weeks early -- but I can't find my camera. I hope it didn't get left in the car when we left it at the wrecker place. I'm sure we didn't.. we'd have noticed if it was left in there.

Anyway, Mom took pictures the other day when we picked it up, so I have a few of the car, but none of me yet.

I also had wanted to take a few pictures of the sock I've been working on.. I'm just doing Ann Budd's basic sock, but with a short row heel. Hopefully my camera will turn up soon and I can share that with you guys. This poor Magic Stripes yarn in Cowboy Stripe.. I really like it a lot, but I have started it in about thirteen different proejcts and ripped it out over and over and over again. Hopefully this will be the project that sticks.

Anyway.. for now, I leave you with some pictures of the wreckage..
