Short work week

Well, it's official, today is my friday.  I wish every week was a two day work week!  Although short, I was able to get a ton done at the lab. Three FSCV (fast-scan cyclic voltammetry for those who don't speak the lingo) experiments, and I trained two undergraduates the beginning of the data analysis.  There was some electrode making and soldering headstage pins thrown in there, but it wouldn't be a day at the lab without those things. Got to love the smell of liquid metal mixed with the aroma of rats. Hee Hee.

Mark and Elizabeth have had two daughter daddy days, so that I could work.  Tomorrow I take over and give Mark a full day at work.  We also travel to TN tomorrow for a Dr's appointment on Friday.  I am so happy to be seeing someone else, I haven't been especially happy with our current healthcare situation.  Of course we will also being seeing Grammy and Pop.  Hurray!  Plus a load of our boxes are also going down. 

I'm afraid next week will be a little sad for me.  Mark and Elizabeth will be staying in TN, while I come back to NC.  I'm going to try and fill up most of my time with lots of packing.  After that, we are hoping to take another trip to the beach before we leave (trying to convince Grammy and Pop to go with us).  Grammy will also be up to help watch Elizabeth.  Then Mark's mom will head up to also help with Elizabeth, while the final packing and moving takes place.  Only 3 weeks remain!!  Although I am heading right back the following week after we move.  Part of my "new" job is to help out in the lab on busy weeks (if available) and that is a really busy week.  But after that I'll officially be a work from home mommy!  So exciting.

Well, now that I have officially bored you with the mundane details of our life, I'll sign off for now.  As Tigger would say "TTFN- ta ta for now".

If your allergies don't get any better, you may have to stay with us in Kingsport next week!

Let me know if you need help next week - I could take off Friday and come down Thursday night to help pack and give you some company.
