..and just exactly where HAVE I been?...
The week has been full of excitement, boys and girls.
-- My grant proposal got funded (of course, so did 70% of the applications, so I guess it was kind of a given...)
-- My long-lost boxes of samples were found, of course, just after I had finished reprocessing 70% of them.
-- I submitted grades for my course, and today was the last official meeting for a second one.
-- I put together funding packages for both of my incoming students and have become woefully aware how hard it is to support your students on Canadian grants.
-- I met with one of my incoming students, and he and I started on a course for designing his new project.
-- I set up appointments with a tax consultant for tomorrow, and figured out WHY my tax software suddenly says that I am not allowed to put money into retirement.
-- I figured out how to get K a tax number in the USA.
-- I planted about 65% of our container garden on the back porch and have spent the rest of the week watching the rain pummel it.
-- I assembled more toys in the lab.
-- I started cleaning my office, and packing it up AGAIN so that I can move BACK to my department's building.
what else what else what else...
-- I went to the students' year-end party and play the role of Professor Fish-Out-Of-Water (I smiled and chatted, stood in the corner a lot, and then left early. But hey, shouldn't profs show support when they are invited?)
