I rushed into work this morning, since I had 3 classes to teach, beginning at 9 am, and hurriedly checked my email. As I quickly deleted spam and unsolicited publisher messages, I very nearly missed a gem: my article was accepted for publication. :) I was so thrilled, I didn't even mind that I had to go and stand and talk in front of people for 3 full hours. I have to make some minor revisions, and force my image files into compliance (which I'm sure will not be a pleasant task) but it will appear in print in early 2011.
Thrilled, thrilled, thrilled. This means that my chances of achieving tenure next year are better, and well, that's REALLY good considering that if didn't, I'd have to leave my job. 0 incomes = bad. So, thank God for small blessings. :)
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
