So...very...close...

Wow. Thanks for all the support on my extinguished adolescense. Here's an additional tidbit - on the enlarged copy of that picture that my grandmother has framed in her living room (!) you can see a piece of carrot in my incisor brace. Now *that's* pretty only a grandmother can love.

So I'm *this far* from finishing a sweater, pair of socks, lace shawl and scarf...hopefully most of this will be done on the weekend. To be honest, I've been focussed on another big project.

A NEW JOB!!! WHEE HOO!!!

I've been offered a wonderful job as a project manager working for an American company. I'll be consulting from home (possibly, in my pajamas) and it will involve some travel, to New York! and to Boston!

The team I'll be working for is just as gregarious and rambunctious as I am. This is very very very exciting.

Life is good.
