I finally made it out of the bell jar!

I'm BACK! It's been a long time since I've posted anything! Actually, I've been remiss in most areas of my life. Between trying to get better from my A.S. and mending a broken heart (still in process) over the last several months I feel like I can finally see a minuscule glimmer of light in the road ahead. Whew! I was beginning to think I'd never see light again. I hope everyone had a great holiday and I wish you a very happy New Year!!! I very rarely make resolutions for the new year (mostly cause I never seem to follow through and can't handle the ensuing Catholic boy guilt that always accompanies my failure of anything). This year, however, I'm going to make a strong effort to be more positive in all aspects of my life. In general, I haven't had an ongoing malevolent view of the world, but from somebody on the outside looking into my existence over my very recent past they would readily see and understand the definition of macabre! So there it is...time to put on the rose colored glasses and hopefully gain some useful information about myself and valuable life lessons. I figure it's gotta start from within. Anyways, I pretty much started this blog as a way for my friends and family to stay in touch with the happenings of my life and save me the task of drawing up and sending out an annual holiday newsletter (I hate those). It also serves the purpose of sharing my fiber endeavors with all of my knitting friends. For those of you who don't "know" me I thought I would share some of myself with you, and for those who are in the inner circle, it may give you the opportunity to learn something you never knew. Without further adieu, here are 50 things about the Mill that you may have never wanted to know...
