    Sorry I've been scarce lately but its for a great reason! I got my dream job!! :) I'm the education programs coordinator for a great organization! I get full benefits and awesome hours--Mon-Fri 8-4ish!!!!!! After a year of retail work working every damn weekend and not getting home until 8pm most nights this is fantastic. The people I work for are awesome and I love what I'm doing. I found out that 50 people sent in resumes for this job and I got it! Okay that is about as much shameless bragging as I can do in one year :eek: :D

    Many thanks for the congratulations guys :)

    You're right! I knew when I saw this job that it had the potential to be great but I didn't actually think I'd get it.

    :D Thank you for giving me a better mental picture. I couldn't imagine WHAT he was going to do with a pound of the stuff :eek: :D It would make a lovely turban for going to the bazaar in Saudi....

    I dunno who said it, but:

    " Being able to do what you want is freedom, But Liking what you do is Happiness"

    Congrats, Rob!

    It took me 10 years of trial and error before I found my niche, so I can relate! Don't be a stranger,Hear?


    P.S. I don't know if knitting "Burly" Bruise a sweater out of belly-button lint is such a good idea. Folks would likely mistake him for......A BEAR! Oh, No!
    I mentioned the "B" word! (It's just been a while since a bear was in a thread) :D :D :D !
