We went to see Away We Go yesterday afternoon and were so proud of our own parenting skills afterwards. Yes, we know the cautionary tale parents in the movie were exaggerated (oh, please, I hope so), but we left feeling good about ourselves, especially as Jenny saw fit to see it with us. I take that as an indication that we didn’t scar her so deeply as a child that she needs to avoid us as much as possible. It didn’t hurt that Maya Rudolph and Jim Krasinski were so darned charming. And Dave Eggers’ humor and quirkiness ran through it - he is so amusing and often pretty deep, too.
I knit through it, and got clear to the end of my heel flap. A few more rows up the leg in the evening and this morning, and I can see that this sock may get done this month. As amusing as this one was, I think the second won’t be far behind.
I guess you have just a little ways yourself before you finish your trip to DC. I hope the land in Pennsylvania checked out fine and the rest of the trip is safe and easy.
