I don't really know why I haven't been blogging, but I think Facebook is at least partly to blame (TV trivia & Scrabulous). I just wanted to do a quick update, at least. I am still in a non-working sort of mindset. I am working and getting things done, but not doing much beyond what is actually necessary. My schedule has gotten a bit busier since I am volunteering in D's class once a week and doing a grant-writing workshop, too.
I've been having some odd health issues lately- nothing bad, but interesting. Can you get arthritis in your 30s? One of my hips is stiff so that it is sore after I sit for a while and it can't move into positions that used to be easy. I went swimming the other night and the breast stroke kick was really painful. It's not bad enough that I want to go to the doctor, but I am still curious about what is going on.
Costco Tire Center RULES! We bought tires for our Nissan Maxima in early 2006 and had to have one replaced because H ran over a nail. They are V-rated tires, so we have to order them and they are expensive. Believe it or not- the tire was under warranty! We only paid about $50 (the tire was $205). So awesome.
D got her school pictures today and they are so cute that I want to post it here! I know I'm biased by biology, but she looks really pretty.
My tenure package has moved from the department to the college level. Their decision will be made this month. From what I've heard, if they approve you, then you are fine at the Provost's office, too. I will be so glad when this is over!
I had wanted to do a post for Scientiae this month, but never managed to do it. I guess I better do one for November!
