First Day - 71 miles later

A long drive - but as I've said it is beautiful. Great time for NPR listening and just for myself time!
Job will be great - interesting, challenging and the real opportunity to make a difference! I am in for the long haul!
Thanks to all your supportive comments today - I really appreciate them - especially since I came home to an empty household because everyone else is now at work!!!
Also met a new knitter today - a part-time employee - so will have lots to share with her. Promised to teach her how to do socks - since I had my latest on I had to show them off!!
I think I decided on my next project - the Celtic sweater with Wool of the Andes - this way I can afford it now - I'm bored with socks for the moment - even though I cast on another pair last night...will show when it's worth the picture.
Hope everyone has a great week!!

So glad you had a good day! The job sounds exciting, and you sound happy. Have a great week getting settled in, and enjoy sweater yarn shopping - there are some great Wool of the Andes colors!

Glad you had a great time. I envy the drive. Much better than PDX freeways, eh?

Socks are addicting. I bet you can't stay away for long. :-)

Good thing you don't mine driving. I hate driving in MA myself, so thankgoodness for public transportation. If it wasn't for that, I'd be working closer to home. But I love working at M.I.T. And it's always nice to love your job.
