I had something to say, but I forgot it.

The house is coming along. One day, I will show you a picture.

I had our first guest over yesterday. She's someone I want to be friends with, but am not sure if we are. But we occasionally get together.

I miss my friends.

My spouse and I, I think, need to re-negotiate the parameters of our relationship. The power dynamic has changed now that I'm home. This isn't a bad thing, or anyone's fault, and we're not headed for a divorce lawyer or anything. Dr. S is very respectful of my needs and desires and whose name is on the paycheck has nothing to do with how we spend it. But, undeniably, it is different now.

    So glad to have found your blog. I am contemplating leaving academia to be a full-time mommy. It is so hard to be a good mom, a good partner, and a good scholar. I find myself just plain exhausted every night with no end in sight. Looking forward to reading about your journey!
