    Some of you may recall I was stressing out horribly because my post doc ended and I was staring down my last paycheck and the loss of my health benefits. Today, my department offered me a full-time position as a member of the teaching faculty. It's a lateral move with the same pay and benefits, but I am so freaking relieved!!! July was a seriously awful month between healing from surgery, getting sick with thrush, and frantically trying to find work. August is much kinder, so far.

    Yay for employment with benefits (oh, and my daughter's tuition discount at the university comes as an added benefit)!!! Thanks to everyone who offered so many kind words and support as I stressed out over the job issues. You have no idea how much that helped!
