Chapter Two: Check.

Again, wow, that was easy. I entered a few minor changes suggested by my advisor, and it's practically finished. I've got two small bits of information to track down, but they're footnote fodder, so they're not part of any Substantive Thinking that needs to happen. So I'm calling it completed. Which is a good thing, because the temperature in my study/sunroom is above 80 degrees at the moment, and I think my brain is starting to melt.

I've got a few hours left before doing some evening errands. My husband finally Saw The Light and agrees with me that our 19 inch TV is a bit, well, small. Our living room is long and narrow, so we literally have to move the furniture every time we watch TV, or else get up and run towards it, hoping to be able to see the football play before it is over.... So we're going to see how cheaply Costco will sell us something a wee bit bigger. Nothing fancy at all. I don't have the energy to decode all those terms like HD, plasma, blah, blah, nor do I want to pay for them...just something larger will do for now.

So I'm going to use my few spare hours to revise a lecture I'm giving tomorrow on business and labor in the 1920s, just so I won't have to subject myself to the same internal monologue when I'm giving it: "Are you giving this same crappy lecture again? Seriously? Because it makes no sense whatsoever and, really, you don't know much about labor, do you?" I always have something of an ulterior motive, which is to marshall historical evidence to demonstrate to students that Unions Are Good, so perhaps I'd better actually make some sense!

Onward to Chapter Three! I'm currently ahead of schedule, which is so unprecedented as to make me slightly nervous... hopefully staying ahead of schedule will allow me to share the whole draft with friends before the defense. And stay sane. Sanity is good.
