Nic--so sorry about the kids and brrr on the 25 degrees! Have you tried a different asthma medicine (Qvar maybe?) to see if it might work with less side effects for you? Either way, I'm so sorry. You didn't need anything else piling on.
sparkle--yeah, I read it. And yeah, it's time. I need to investigate the other link further--I saw that when reading the article this weekend. I'm thinking editing or public policy kind of stuff. I'm also trying to remind myself that I'm still only looking for part-time, so if an adjunct slot opens up, I can do that too.
bec-- hope the cold doesn't materialize.
