After several weeks of revision (my first real work as Sydney and I begin switching off childcare duties) I submitted my first chapter to my advising committee. Since I’d written and rewritten it over the course of a couple of years, reworking it was a bit of a bear. Despite all of the preparations for the job hunt that I have yet to complete, I’m feeling a sense of accomplishment at getting that sent off.
And today, one day after emailing my chapter in, I got hit with a monstrous cold. I’m not sure whether to be grateful that the cold held off until now or annoyed that it’s interfering with the celebration plans I had laid out.
