After a week of craziness it’s all over. So let’s recap the last few days. We woke up around 3 on Friday afternoon, took a couple of one hour naps and went to bed at 2am sunday morning. Woof.

That’s right. Woof.

Last night the graduate student association had organized a formal winter ball that […]

I almost see the light

Alright just about another 30 hours and I will be done with this crazy schedule. I have to work shift tonight from midnight – 6am but then I have a meeting at Fermi Lab from 9:30 -12:30. After that we’ll drive home and sleep for a couple hours and then we are going to this […]

Got It Done

Whew. That’s all I can say. Jason woke up at 5:30 Wednesday morning and I woke up at 7am. We went to bed at 7:30 am Thursday morning. woof. I totally passed out on the training coming home from the lab, which was funny because I woke up when we got to the city and […]

Late Night Labwork

Quick! We need the labwork back from the…muon detector? Hmm, that really works better on ER.

Yep, Leah is working hard on the late night shift helping research the detector of the future. Meanwhile, I’m also at the lab trying to finish up the last of my research for the measurement I’m working on. Fun […]

Push It Back

Well yesterday wasn’t the best day for me. I only got a couple of hours sleep because I found out at 11pm that I really did need to take a test for radiological worker training at 9am the following morning and had only slightly gone over the first half of a 50 page document which […]

Missy Could Give No More

Well she gave all she could, but today we saw that it wasn’t nearly enough. Our 16 year old cat Missy had deteriorated to a point where we couldn’t conceivably keep her alive any longer.

I believe that her kidney functions were down to about zero percent because the poor girl had lost a lot […]

Something Had to Give

Well I love to do it all. Get all my workouts, work work, reading, netflix watching, commuting, cleaning, eating in everyday. I don’t like to let one thing go. This morning I realized though I had to. I had planned on getting up at 5am walking over to the YMCA (we are now leaving our […]

Battling The Cold

This afternoon Jason and I braved the low temperatures and headed out for a 5 mile run. Fortunatly we don’t have the snow covered sidewalks that our running compadres in Wisconsin are dealing with so we don’t have to worry about that aspect of winter running.

The temperature however was only about 18 degrees with […]


You mean Boring Mill?

Oh man. I have not run on a treadmill for probably about 5 years, but since it was SO cold yesterday (never made it out of the single digits) I thought it would be a good idea to not be so tough (stupid?) and go to the YMCA and get our […]

Spread Thin

You know when you go to your favorite bagel place and get that heavenly combination of bagel and cream cheese. Sometimes the proportion of cheese to bagel is perfect and others there is hardly enough cheese to cover half the bagel let alone both halves. These days I am the cream cheese in scenario two. […]
