Hi Everybody!

(I hope you thought of Dr. Nick when you read that title.) I just realized that it's been a week since I posted, and even more time since I said anything substantive. It's just been a yucky week here; I got sick on Tuesday and things went downhill from there. I've been hoping for an upswing so I could post about how lovely everything managed to turn out, but I'm still sick and Mr. Fob's paycheck is still lost in limbo. And I'm still drowning in homework, plus the weather has turned cold and extremely windy. At least tomorrow is Saturday and we can have some fun time together as a family (in theory). At some point things have to get better, right?

PS--I did attend a nice meeting this afternoon where I got free cake, a free pen, and a nice pat on the back for being one of 5 students (out of 60 candidates) chosen for my special fellowship. I do have to help plan a symposium, but at least once a month I get free cake!

I will now tell you what people keep telling me that is supposed to make me feel better that doesn't:
Don't worry, everything will work out. And it could always be worse.

Hey, free cake AND a fellowship! Can't beat that...They give me a job, but I don't ever see any cake from it. :-)

Totally sympathetic on the "buried in homework" feeling. I'm going into my seventh week in the semester, and still haven't gotten my head above water!

Congrats on the fellowship! Very cool. Hope things start looking up a little otherwise.

Never underestimate the power of free cake. Hope you had a nice relaxing Saturday, and that you are feeling better. And, I hope that paycheck shows up, because that is one thing that would push me over the edge! I would need TWO pieces of free cake to deal with that!

Not only must I refuse the cake (won't help my cholesterol numbers) but I'm buried in other people's homework that I must score. But, everything will work out and it could be worse.

And probably will be soon...do they make worm cake?
