It has been a long time since I've blogged, and I really appreciate those of you who continue to check back with me despite my hiatus from writing. I've been really exhausted. But, good things have been happening. I successfully defended my dissertation and graduated with my PhD. I've just received a job offer as a postdoc at a university on the East Coast.
I'm about to start teaching a summer course and figuring out the details of moving across the country. I'm feeling happy, but overwhelmed. I'm nervous about all that I have to do, not being able to take a vacation, not being able to make it to Israel for my friend's wedding, and starting my life in a new place.
I look ahead into the future, and I see things opening up for me. Everything I've been working for is right there.
But, things are horrible with Dad. And I have no idea about Mom's condition other than Dad continues to try to euthanize her with Oxycontin and Oxyfast.
There is a lot for me to do, but things are going really well. And I'm surrounded by really amazing friends. I'm a lucky girl.
