Sale, Vacation & Traffic Jam

1.Shops are starting to pull out the fall/winter collection.The summer sale is going on. Its my forth year here and I was never able to buy the summer/winter cloths for next year because we were always in doubt whether we will be here in US that time of the year or not. Anyway,I am happy to be here for four years despite the confusion.

2.Talked with Chuks' mom yesterday. She is clearly sad that the much awaited vacation will most probably not happen. Anyways, she is not opposing the invitation to spent time over here until December.

3.Long traffic jam on the way home.It took almost half an hour to cover one mile.But,instead of honking madly,people are patiently waiting for their turn.
