Of my original list, I have accomplished everything I was supposed to do on Monday. Revising the paper was much more time-consuming than I imagined. I ended up doing additional analysis, then I wrote all the response to reviewers comments, etc. My co-authors are really on the ball, so we'll probably send in the revisions tomorrow (less than a week after getting the acceptance!). So it's certainly time well spent for a spring break! I thought I would be spending more time on the new research (for the conference next month), so that will be my plan for tomorrow. I am also going to have lunch with a friend, send off that application (I finished that one last night), and stop by my office to find a letter from a student (I hope that's where it is!)
I haven't been too productive in the afternoons, but I also don't feel like I've actually had a break- which is bad. Maybe if I am productive tomorrow, I can take Friday afternoon off and watch (or see) a movie. Or something. We'll see.
It's so warm here the last couple of days that I've got the ceiling fans on upstairs! Crazy March weather- I hope it doesn't snow this weekend like they're predicting. All of my bulbs are starting to emerge- I hope they bloom before I leave town for the conferences!
Thanks to everyone who posted comments about my job decision. I am feeling at peace at about now. I was explaining to one of my colleagues how the job would have meant that I was 45 minutes from my grandma's, a 6-hour drive from my mom's, and a 6-hour drive from my brother's. He said "and a 4-hour plane ride from your husband." That pretty much sums it up. I am still holding out some hope for dream job, but it could be the same agonizing decision all over again if I get an offer.
