Today I received two bits of good news. The all-college tenure committee voted to recommend my tenure. That was the last major obstacle. Now it goes to the college's president and board of trustees for final approval, which is just a rubber stamp. I also got word from a journal that they accepted an article I submitted for publication.
I am not celebrating, though. Sara is in Berlin this week at a History of Science workshop. Moreover, I have been feeling down recently. Our finances are a mess and Sara is still looking for work with no real prospects. The stress of it all has been crushing me. Add to it the dismal weather and days that are getting shorter and it all makes for a nasty cocktail of the blues.
That's all for now.
