In the last month and a half I've barely been able to pick up a book except on a plane. Our youngest graduated from high school and we had a very large graduation party. Then we took our trip to Ireland. 3 days after we got back we took a 5 day trip to Tennessee for my niece's graduation and 18th birthday. Ever since we got back from that it's been non-stop wedding preparations for my middle son's wedding. Due to circumstances, we were throwing the wedding rather than the bride's family. So we got him married off in a lovely ceremony last night at which we had a much bigger crowd than we had anticipated. My mother had been staying with us since May 23 to travel and be a part of all these events. She left for her home in Colorado just a few minutes ago. Normalcy can return, which for me means lots of reading!
