Well, big fat congratulations are in order! LOL! 4's and 6's, wow. I'll be happy to settle into an 8, although I think I might be able to wear some 6's when I'm done.
I am planning on sewing again to get around all the "not designed for my body" issues. Just getting so tired of never finding dresses that fit, and baggy-bummed pants. I have a rectangular body, with a rather large waist for my other dimensions, and by the time the waistband fits, nothing else does. Stretch jeans are my new friends, mind you. Unlike most "rectangles" though, I have round, rather bulky muscles, so I don't fit that profile too well either. I don't mind, in the sense that I think it looks bad, but clothes designed for hourglass figures just aren't going to work on me. Not if they're fitted anyway. All these princess seams just create bags across my back.
As for that interesting man at church, don't make moves on him. Just strike up a conversation. Don't try to accomplish anything at all except getting to know him a bit better. I'm a great fan of getting to know men through friendships. You get an idea of how compatible you are without all the pressures of the dating dance. Some positive comment on the morning's sermon, or a further development of its thought would be entirely natural, it seems to me. But then, I'm the type who strikes up conversations with strangers in the check-out line at the grocery store. And who thinks one of the great delights of flying is getting to know the person in the next seat. I have met some really fascinating people on planes.

More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.
