The Last Train To Pennsyltucky

Adam is currently hanging out in NJ with David and Ray - he's here but not for as long as I'd like. But I'll take what I can get. He took the train this time, getting a flight on such short notice proved too difficult and too expensive and really - since you now have to arrive at the airport hours early it really wasn't that much of a time difference. The closest train station also turned out to be right next to Ray so that was a very good thing. David left yesterday morning and visited, they picked Adam up at 5 and they headed straight out to dinner. Work is finally a breather, the holidays are over and I'm on vacation after today. We have an ad for more employees and I had time to do something other than run for once. And my stuff from Knitpicks finally came - whoo hoo!! There was a delay in weather, then there was the wrong address, etc - and we all know how patient I am. But it came last night so I had something to play with. Pearl was bad - when David's not here her idea of protecting the house is Random Barking - by 11 I was a bit murderous to say the least. She finally quit it after I made it clear her life WAS in danger, not to mention there was a free pillow (I'll just flip it before David gets home - he'll never know). As you can see I'm currently knitting another shawl, I seem to be stuck on shawls and socks. I think I'll be doing a sweater next. I have to get back to exercising and not eating crap - David and I have been just awful lately, one of us is as bad as the other. We're like a pair of ten year olds with money, if one of us doesn't buy crap the other one does. And it's so easy to fall right back into it, isn't it? Crap is fun, easy and always available. You don't have to do anything to it, it requires no prep, no heat, all you have to do is pull off the wrapper and you're good to go. But we have to stop - I finally got on the scale yesterday and I haven't gained back all of the weight, but I'm well on my way.

What a lovely shawl! Cliff and I have been awful with our eating, too. Wintertime does that to us.
We need to talk about your knitting some small something-or-other that I could buy, so I'd have a souvenir hand-made by a fellow-blogger. Suggestions?
I have the cutest wall hanging I bought from a blogger friend in Maine.
