“Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them.” – Albert Einstein

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.
