T-minus 2 days until J's dissertation defense. He got sick this morning, and I'm sure it was nerves (vegetarians just don't get food poisoning).
Here's a terrible thought: our relationship has been really good, and I've been way calmer than usual since he began the downhill to graduation. In other words, as he's gotten more stressed, I've had a reduction in mine. I think it may have something to do with me feeling like I actually have more control in my life than him for once. Even if it's not real control, the comparison makes it look like it. That makes me feel bad, but since I'm feelin' so stable and great, I'll use it to make sure he's doing good, too. I swear it is not schadenfreude.
Thursday and Friday I get to spend all day in a workshop for supervisors/managers. I'm excited, because I like my job and would like it more if I was better at it. I think my boss doesn't value this kind of training much, but I figure some is better than none. I also get to leave an hour early on Friday. Score!
