I'm going to post this here and not the thread in Interview Process because of the unfortunate typo. They turned me down 10 minutes ago (my husband's potential chair called him). I suspect it wasn't because of the lingering trauma I have from teaching last semester, because teaching went well, but because of fit. I will never, ever know, but I'm pretty sure some deans are pissed off somewhere.

We've been a great mood all weekend, having decided to stay here and not there. I think this will help, mostly, since my husband will feel less guilty about turning them down later this week. There is some positive grant stuff going on in my spouse's lab that might (might) finally get him a long term job at my institution. Yay.

It sounds like a good outcome, from what you've said, so I'm glad to hear it. Here's hoping that the grants come through for long-term spousal employment!
