Checking In

I wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year and a productive, healthy and happy 2009.

I also wanted to let everyone know that even though I haven't been posting I've been reading and keeping up to date on your lives.

Here is a quick update on me

  • boss has told me I look pretty twice, first one I shruged off due to the holiday party, second one made me uncomfortable (and I wasn't even looking pretty, very frumpy looking), next time I am going to have to speak up.
  • other than that work is going well, still only working about 25 hours a week. The commute was dragging on me but I was able to not commute during the holiday week and I feel refreshed.
  • one of the two special journal articles has been completely accepted, no more revisions! Still to hear back on the other article.
  • still working on manuscript from "long-ass" time ago: we know which journal to resubmit to, I just need to incorporate a co-authors suggestions (hope to finish this week-end)
  • still working on manuscript from masters thesis: the pregnant student ran my samples (yeah!) but the data doesn't agree with previous analysis (b00) still need to solve this problem before I can finish the revisions (double boo)
  • I'm going to speak in my sisters class about my career next week. She is in 7th grade. Should be fun, hope I don't embarrass her.
  • husband still looking for a job, no leads yet
  • my husband is the happiest I've see him in 7 years
  • I'm loving being back here on the west coast

What's not to love on the West Coast :) Happy New Year - and I hope the b00s are resolved soon! (and sorry about the boss...)

Happy New Year! I'm glad that you feel refreshed after the holiday week off (it is unfortunate about the boss... let us know how it goes, ok?). I'm also glad that you and husband are enjoying the west coast :-)

I'm so glad you're enjoying your new locale! Um, boss telling you you look pretty? EW! What an awkward (and borderline rule-breaking) position to be put in. I hope it hasn't happened again.
