The big grant came through. I have a job, doing something I love, for the next five years.
It's more than that, actually. It's a chance to be part of the most important thing I've ever done in my whole life. (besides be a mom)
I called the other company and told them I couldn't talk to them anymore.
It's a huge relief. In fact, I don't have a tension headache for the first time in a week.
It was great to have a company fussing over me. But it's even better to feel like I'm back where I belong.
