So far the job is going great and I'm surrounded by a lot of really nice people. I appreciate this so much because my last job wasn't quite that way. I am working in good ol' downtown Detroit. I have to post some pictures when I get a chance. Considering the current economic state in Michigan and the automotive industry and manufacturing, Detroit doesn't feel depressed. I was so happy about that. The city has been through so much since I was a kid and it's probably going to be another rough stretch but it's not giving up. Downtown is full of flowering trees and tulips and daffodils in the islands, the streets are clean and the window cleaners are all out. The old turn of the century architecture is still beautiful and of course there are an awful lot of Red Wings jerseys out and about :) Everybody I've met has been wonderful and full of spring fever, like me!

I know, I've been quiet. I've been really busy and swear I've talked to a hundred people on this job quest thing. Some days I'm going a mile a minute and others I'm in Murphville. Murph, murph, murph. Blah, blah, blah. Murph, murph, murph. I hate that I can't concentrate on projects in times like these and when I try I seem to frog a lot. I even started to get nervous about finishing anything because I didn't know when I would get my next fix. I started thinking in terms of lace simply because very little yarn goes a long way. And I started hording fiber.....can't spin it, what if I can't get more??? This is not the creative excitement that I usually approach life from at all! This is soo not me! This was getting downright pathetic.
