Please, Join my Club!

A frequent reader I recently met in person gently chided me for my long blog silence. I have no excuses *except* that I’m a member of a pretty exclusive club, which I call MACPITAFAD, or, Moving Across the Country is a Pain In The Ass while Finishing A Dissertation. I’m accepting new members; anyone else want to join?

You can see why posting has been light and fluffy.

I did just return from a quick trip to Houston, where I rented the most adorable little bungalow in the Houston Heights. Having that part of the move taken care of has made it easier to concentrate exclusively on the Amazing Mr. Book. AMB will shortly be done, for better or worse!

Until AMB is done, and until my move is complete, I anticipate that posting will continue to be light and fluffy, if not non-existent. If you have emailed me recently with questions about Virginia history or geneaology, please bear with me. I will return your email as soon as time permits.

  1. It’s a pretty exclusive club to belong to and you should feel very blessed to be a member! You have so much to look forward to! This is kind of like those discussions around the dinner table about eating your tomatoes while children are starving in country XYZ…Mammamoo

  2. I’m so mostly in your club (does it count that I have three book reviews to write, two courses to prep, and an article to work on? Seeing as how I finished the diss a while back …). Sending lots of support, bucause, yeah, it SUCKS!

  3. Actually, I’m already a joint member of MACPITA-SAD (Moving Across the Country is a Pain In The Ass while Starting A Dissertation) and MATPITA-MAD (Moving Across Town is a Pain In The Ass while in the Middle of A Dissertation).I think this means you and I can present at one another’s conferences.
