I just realized that it's been over a week since I last blogged. (And that I still haven't updated the blogroll. Yikes. I will get to it, I swear.) So I figured I should check in just to let you know that yes, I'm still here. It's just been a crazy, crazy time around here. Lots of family drama, a medical emergency (not me, but someone close to me), lots of little things that needed to be taken care of. And on top of everything else, my breast pump is dying, which means that (a) I'm getting almost no milk when I pump, which is a major source of stress, and (b) I'm scrambling around trying to figure out if I can/should fix the old one or just get a new one (or borrow one---yeah yeah, I know, unsanitary blah blah).
So once I catch my breath and catch up with everything that life's been throwing my way, blogging will resume. And I have some posts brewing in my head---an update on Baby Jane (it's been a while!), some thoughts on returning to work and day care, and some more thoughts on the whole tenure rat race.
Thanks for your patience!
