Blog #1 9-6-11 Introduction

Blog #1


Welcome to my new blog!

As I contemplated starting a weekly blog, I thought, “why would anyone want to read about my thoughts, experiences, and daily activities?”  I don’t know the answer to that, but I guess we’ll find out!

I’ve recently been inspired by Gretchen Rubin’s “The Happiness Project.”  It is a great book, and she has a good website (

I actually started writing a novel this week, but I quickly realized that I would have to clone myself in order to find the time to do so!  (Which coincidentally, I may be able to do!  See my lab website: or simply look above this text and you’ll see I’m using the same site!)  However, I am not going to clone myself, rest assured all my conservative friends!

This first blog will simply be about me and my background.  I am 40 years old, a mother of three, a non-doting wife, an associate professor, a dog owner, director of a research laboratory, and all around humorous person!  That’s all you need to know for now.

Sit back and enjoy the blog!
