“First Daddy, now you?!”

That question/statement made me sooooooo sad :(.

Mr T had to go a a 3-day business trip. He came home for one day and I left for a conference for 6 days. Big T was NOT happy. He did not like being left out of all the traveling, and he really did not like the fact that we seemed to be leaving all the time.

I don’t know how other PhD moms do it, but conference time is stressful around here. Scientific conferences are good for my career. Essential, even  – the networking, the learning, the presenting… but leaving Mr T to hold down the fort solo for 6 days is kind of a BIG deal. Plus I miss the fam. I really, really miss them.

So what do I do while I am gone?

1) Skype

2)somehow can’t seem to stop buying them mementosof my trip

3)email

4)Skype some more (Did I mention, skype is awesome!)

And what do they do while I’m gone?

I have not a clue. But I really hope they just sort of keep up the routine as much as possible.

Mr T is a ROCKSTAR!

“Hi Mommy!”

*That was Big T skyping with me*

Yay!!!!! I got to skype. Aaaaahhhhh! I got to see my babies 🙂 And my hubby 🙂 🙂 Big T and Little T are both well. I joined them for dinner virtually. Oh, technology…how I love thee.

I gave my presentation today, and it went well. I might have even set up a potential collaboration. Then at dinner, I met more cool people. Scientists. And a couple of spouses. We ended up just hanging out all evening.

The only thing I have not done here is use the pool or play at the beach. Goals for tomorrow: Go to lots of talks, eat only one dessert (no more!), got to the pool AND the beach, do some reading.
