Ok, not yet, but the spouse completed and sent his first real application for a post-doc today. I have allowed myself to get excited and look up insane details about a location before, so these feelings are nothing new. I am not going overboard, I am not getting myself too excited. I am genuinely proud of him and what this means for his self-confidence and attitude towards his life right now. It doesn't hurt that it gives me hope, also.
Even if he doesn't get this one (hell, it's the first one, I'm not crazy) it'll make it easier for him to make more attempts. Yay!
