I’m back. And you know what, I had all these grand plans for blogging while I was away but I just couldn’t bring myself to write, or even read. My Google reader said 1000+ unread entries, just this morning. Oh, I read just a little bit while I was away, just enough to know that there were blog controversies complete with all the usual shenanigans (science vs. religion). However, once I got electronically uncoupled …even from my watch as it were… it became nearly impossible for me to turn the technology back on. And that’s a good thing, cause it left time for stuff like this:
We had an awesome trip, thanks for asking. But, as I was reflecting this morning at 4:30 am on my way to the grocery store… couldn’t sleep… jet lag… I missed writing, and I missed you people…. WEIRD, I know. 😉
So, tomorrow I’ll spend some time in my office, digging myself out from under piles and piles of email, making a prioritized office/lab to-do list, collecting drafts of those review articles I’m supposed to be supervising, getting ready for the onslaught on Monday… and blogging hopefully. Then, when I get home I’ll start looking for a new piano teacher for LittleA, renting a clarinet for BigA, and organizing whatever sports the kids want to participate in when school starts, I’m going to need a home to-do list as well, I can see that now. Life goes on. Yikes!
The coming months will be busy and they will bring some exciting new challenges and responsibilities. I’m rested and ready- and I wouldn’t be doing it like this, or writing about it…if I didn’t really enjoy it.
