Happy Holidays! Strike Over!

So the strike is over and everything has turned to a mad rush for last minute Christmas shopping! Well, at least for people that didn't get out the city earlier! New York was so empty this morning!

I lucked out on Wednesday by working at home. Thursday morning I went back to work, but had to drive around Queens for 30 minutes in the cab trying to get a 4th person so we could get over the bridge to Manhattan! Getting home wasn't a problem this time, my fiance had driven up from Jersey so we just drove home to Queens. Course he was stuck in traffic at 3pm on the Jersey Turnpike when they announced the strike was over.......but hey, better late than never!

But who cares about all that strike stuff......it's time for Christmas!


It's going to be a busy holiday! We have tons of family to see. Both of our parents are divorced, so we have 4 families to fit in! Luckily I took off from work all next week, so I'll have plenty of time to rest (and knit)!

Happy Holidays everyone! I'll see ya guys next year - hopefully with a finished pair of Log Cabin socks!

Oh my goodness, I'm in the same boat with all the divorced parents! Makes the holidays a bit frantic sometimes... or at least very very busy. Enjoy all of your visits, though, and maybe you'll get some knitting time, too?

Merry Christmas!
