Hubby successfully defended his diss on Monday & was referred to as “Dr.” for the first time around 1:30 that day (this is a privilege reserved for the dissertation director, so I was only the second person to call him that).
We haven’t gone hog wild with the celebrations: a trip to the beach on Monday night, friends over last night, jam making today. But it has been a relaxing couple of days. Tomorrow we’ll start packing to head back down state & cleaning/getting this house ready for our tenant’s return on Saturday. It’ll be a crazy couple of weeks after that getting classes prepped, but I’m aiming to get into a workout routine as quickly as possible.
I’m also canceling cable. Hubby hates TV, everything I might want to watch is on Hulu anyway, and I’m much more productive when there’s no siren song of mindless TV to answer. Without TV this summer, those 1.5-2 hour walks were perfect. I had the time to do them. With TV, it’ll be harder to motivate myself off the couch & out the door. Folks who have done this already…it’s doable, right? Help me out here as I am a little nervous about cutting the cord.
Okay, it’s only for a 1 year experiment. I enjoy summers without the noise box blathering on and on, but then I’m usually happy to return to some mindless entertainment in the fall. In fact, I usually OD on TV that first week back.
Anyway, the real “radio silence” in the title isn’t about the TV thing: it’s about my relative absence from this site. I usually reserve blog writing/reading for when hubby’s away from the house or I’m away from him…cause this is MY space & while he knows about this blog, I’m just not into having him looking over my shoulder reading it…not that he’s interested, mind you. Anywho, for the last couple of weeks we’ve been pretty inseparable what with his folks being in town, all the friend packing/moving, and his major revision sessions for the diss. So…and I’m only realizing this now…I haven’t had much alone time to write my own (non-work) stuff. That’s something I’m looking forward to doing when we get back down state. There’s actually a lot I’m looking forward to, but blogging regularly is at the top of the list.
