Woot!


Here is something that happened in the Bug household that’s a Really Big Deal:

Dr. M got tenure!!!

…and a promotion at his university. I’m pretty darn proud of him – he apparently put together a most excellent tenure & promotion portfolio & wowed the Beings in Charge of Such Matters.

Daddy & Amy were pretty proud too – here’s what awaited us when we got to their house (along with a banner & balloon for my birthday).




Love you dear heart – mwah!

  4. Wow! What great news! And by-golly-by-gosh, I got here to read about it before it was week old news. Yea, me!

    But especially, YEA, him! That's a big deal for sure. I'd celebrate for a month. I wonder if I could get tenure somehow..... LOL

  8. Thanks, y'all! I was hired on a tenure track contract, and I am good at what I do, so I have had some security the last three years, but tenure gives me another level of security and allows me to participate more fully in shared governance of the university. Yes, that translates to more work, lol! It is a major pat on the back, and protection against arbitrary dismissal, and in my case, it also comes with promotion to Associate Professor, which means a raise :-)
