I could not be more pleased for you. I'm glad to have one more example of a woman living the dream and having it all. I'm just sorry that 'having it all' doesn't include more sleep and fewer time outs, for all our sakes. Rock on, Professor Momma!

I'm late reading this post and I feel compelled to be one of those internet blog readers who doesn't know you and yet is very happy for you! I'm curious about the difference between part time assistant professor and adjunct faculty because your gig sounds waaaay better than the kind of stuff I'm seeking out in English departments.
