I have been a bad, bad blogger in so many ways. In addition to my complete inability to form coherent words on my own webpage, I have even ceased being able to come up with two word comments for the many bloggers I read every day and who inspire me.
But, the most unforgivable thing is that I have neglected to thank a couple of sweet people who thought enough about my slack-ass self to present me with two very nice blogging awards. So – better late than never.
Thanks to WhyMommy – my favorite fellow scientist-mom – who presented me with a “You Make Me Smile” award.
She has inspired me to start running again, so that someday I will run in a Susan G. Komen “Run for the Cure” event with her name and my mother’s name on my back. I only hope my old knees hold out.
And AGES ago, Jodifur gave me a “Power of Schmooze” award for helping her find a new keyboard for her laptop.
We got to commiserate about the hazards of toddlers and unattended laptop keyboards, and she has been a blog-friend ever since. And, even cooler, I GET TO MEET HER! She is picking me up for breakfast next week when I am in DC on business. How cool is that?!
I will try and pass on the love a little later this week.
While I am prostrating myself – thanks to everyone who has come by and left your well-wishes in the last few weeks. I have appreciated every word, even when I was too wrapped up in self-pity to respond. You stayed with me until I could see the light at the end of the tunnel, and I am more grateful than you will ever know.
And thanks to everyone that keeps reading despite my pitiful output. Hopefully I will have something worth the attention.
