A job, of course, would assist in this making-new-friends business...however, I do not have one in Seattle, nor a prospect of one. Le sigh. What I do have, though, is a much improved resume. This is a huge step in the right direction. Now onto actually finding places that want me.
In other (better) news, we have a new fridge! In order to get the new fridge in successfully we had to complete a few other tasks, including painting the nook (done!), finishing the dining room chairs (finished!), and raising the wall behind the fridge (complete!). It was a very busy, but very productive weekend.
