This week, my husband accepted a position as an Assistant Professor of Rhetoric and Composition at a college in upstate New York!
The wait is finally over - but really, the wait wasn't that painstakingly long. The fact is, we were pleasantly surprised with an early opportunity; to have all of this wrapped up before the New Year is a blessing and believe me, we are going to appreciate every single day with peace in our minds and hearts. His teaching contract will not begin until fall 2011, so we will get to enjoy our little home in Athens, Ohio, for a few more months. We couldn't be happier!
Hang on a minute. There's more.
You had to know it was coming! I will write my last post for "A Day in the Life of a Grad Student's Wife" on December 31st. January 1st will be the official launch date of my new blog, 'A Professor's Wife', and I hope you'll follow me there!
http://www.aprofessorswife.com has proven to be a bit of a techie challenge, as I'm making the transition to a self-hosted Wordpress blog. I carefully weighed the pros and cons, and decided to take this challenging blogging road. I will install the Google Friend Connect widget so that you will be able to easily follow my new blog in Google Reader. You'll also be able to subscribe via email, too - so if you're not a Google Reader user, it's totally cool.
Of course, I can't completely delete all of my days of being a Grad Student's Wife, so I'm leaving this blog alone - it'll still be here after the 1st for your reading pleasure! You never know - you may feel the urge to revisit some of those Chocolate induced posts.
So basically, I'm still the same girl. With the same writing style, and the same personality. But PRAISE the LORD, I'm completing the phase of being a Grad Student's Wife! It's been a long 7 years! (I had to celebrate some how!)
As always, thanks for reading my blog. I will continue to post here up until the new year, so don't go anywhere just yet!
Have a terrific weekend, all! Go ahead and start planning your trips to Albany, NY!
