Well, we were logging on tonight to leave a quick post, and we let Mom check her email while we were waiting for everything to load. Long story short, we will have to save our original post for tomorrow, because Mom just found out right now (approximately 11pm EST) that she has a job interview tomorrow at 1pm! They said if she can't come in, they could do it by phone since it is such short notice, but she's going to go.
Since Mom will be graduating with her Ph.D. in August, she has been looking for postdoc and adjunct positions. The professor/scientist she has been trying to work out an adjunct position with just sent her an email asking her if she wanted to interview for a full-time assistant professor position. It's only temporary, she would be substituting for another professor, but she would get to teach two classes each semester! Mom is looking forward to really getting into the teaching part of her career, so she is very excited for this opportunity. Even if she doesn't get this position, it will be her first interview for this type of position, so she'll get some valuable experience either way. She's already nervous, so Harlie and I are standing at attention, waiting to see what she needs us to do. Probably she will need some snuggling tonight (that falls to Harlie and I since Dad is working an overnight tonight), but we know if you all think some positive thoughts for her, that will help her greatly too! Thanks everykitty!
