So glad that's over.

By that, of course, I mean the holidays. No more holiday music, looking at peoples holiday-themed sweaters or family drama.

I suppose it's no surprise that the most overused statement of my 2009 Holiday Season was:
"This time next year _____!!" Fill in the blank with something baby related, followed by some kind of high-pitched excitement that I can't replicate. I'm excited on the inside and it seems to endlessly disappoint people.

The number one question I'm tired of people asking:
"Are you going to keep working after the baby?"
Yeah, I thought I would just get a Ph.D. for shits and giggles in an effort to bide my time until I could shoot a baby out of my vag.

Currently, I am in the middle of writing a grant that is due at the end of January. Until then, expect sparse posting.

Good luck. I finished one on 12/23/09... Is it the new NIH format? I have some good links on my blog for writing tips. Maybe it will help.

I'm happy you got holidays until the 11 of Jan ;)

Joke aside, good luck with the grant writing...

(and for one more time I wonder about why we are so wrong in our heads that want to use the PhD we worked for..... who knows, maybe it will change when hormones and oxytocin kicks in?? as long as you are happy it's good!)

I used to get asked the same thing, I chalk up to people who can't possibly do more than one thing at a time.

So, I'm just curious.
Are you going to keep working after you have the baby?

Look, everyone, it's the spirit of Christmas!

Just think - this time next year, you'll be working after having the baby!!!!! SQUEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

Very funny post, thanks for the LOLs! And best wishes with the grant.

EXACTLY. These people's brains are not attached to their mouths.
