Happy New Year--I'm starting a new blog!

I've been gone a long time!

A quick update on the last few months.

--I have lost most of the "baby" weight without even trying. Who knew that all I needed was a lot of stress and a health scare (still in the middle of this, but I'm hopeful that all will be OK).
--I turned 41 last week. Less traumatic than turning 40, and yet, I am now fully into my forties.
--The girls are marvelous. They drive me bonkers, but they are smart, funny and creative.
--Had two papers published in the Fall. Right now, it looks like a smooth ride to full professor. I go up in Fall 2011.

I'm going to start a new blog this weekend. It will be a little different. My identity will be a little more transparent and my husband may occasionally chime in. I'll post a link as soon as I get it set up. I hope you'll visit me there. I'll still post here some. Can't really make fun of my mother-in-law (who spent a rocking $5 on my younger daughter for Christmas) if my husband is reading. He gets touchy about these things.

Until then, Happy New Year!

Happy new year to you too! I hope everything is okay health wise, that's never fun.

BIG congrats on the papers, I know how much work that is! Smooth ride to full prof is great, and particularly impressive with two little ones. You go!!

Funny how we all seem to have MIL / present issues. Mine goes WAY overboard. But then my mom didn't get the kids anything (partially my fault as I guess I had told her I would get something she could give them, but really, she can't make it to the store herself?). So I guess it all comes out in the wash. Can you tell I have some resentment here too?? :)

Happy New Year! I haven't been on fb much so I have't seen what you've been up to. I'll stay below the radar on the new blog ;) Oh,oh my in laws are the worst- they do the GIANT plastic crap toys. The kids instantly fall in love with them and then they break in January and I have to s l o w l y get rid of them. It's another kind of hell.
