Good Enough After All
Thank-you for all your supportive comments yesterday. You really made me feel better.
I felt even better when I received an email from York a short time later offering me a full-time spot with a research and graduate assistantship and a scholarship! I hadn’t really thought about doing it full-time, but this changes everything. The scholarship will cover the tuition and the assistantships will cover the childcare, and then some. Plus, I think Cakes would only benefit from a few days of nursery school each week. It is getting harder to keep her stimulated at home. I also think it will be good for me.
This will postpone our baby-making plans by a few months, but that’s OK. This way, I’ll finish the program in August 2008 and will finally (finally!) be done. It would not be easy slugging away at it part-time for the next four years with a toddler as well as a newborn.
So friends, I am happy, happy, happy. I hope the U of T offer comes through in April so I can turn it down.
Please send your ROFL nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, March 7 and we will announce them on Friday, March 9. Email me if you’d like to be added to our mailing list. Thanks!
