Lab Mom

Lab Mom spent 15 years as a Lab Manager in Academia before off-tracking in 2010 to stay at home with her two daughters. She blogs about the juggling act of motherhood and a science career, which encompasses a lot more then the cliche work-life balance.

As I approach my one year blogging anniversay (holy crap!) it is time to look back at 2010. I thought the easiest way to do that was jump on the "12 months of.." meme.

I am copying the guidelines from DrugMonkey, since I think that is the actual origin:
The rules for this blog meme are quite simple.
-Post the link and first sentence from the first blog entry for each month of the past year.


Jan (TTJYEL): There are lots of advantages to being a working mom in the biological sciences versus some boring office or retail gig. (Look at that! I was actually a working mom! It seems like a long long time ago.)

Feb ((TTJYEL): So it begins. 31 days until I have a better blog! (I was a brand spankin' new blogger. This was the first post in my 31 DBBB series)

March (TTJYEL): If you have recently joined a new lab, don't constantly start sentances with the phrase "In my old lab..." (Clearly I was having a rough day at work. Fortunately by March I knew I was leaving my lab.)

April (TTJYEL): Oh my! (This was the final day of the 31 DBBB series. Yes, Yes..I know it took me more than 31 days.)

May (TTJYEL): 1. ThePrincess has learned how to ride her bike at break-neck speeds but lacks the ability to stop, or even slow down. (In May I was lamenting about what direction my life was headed.)

June (TTJYEL): I have been avoiding blogging about the move since, well, it has gone so completely disastrously**. (I was midway though a cross country move.)

July (TTJYEL): Life as I know it has evolved. (I am now a stay-at-home-mom. HOLY SHIT!)

August (LabSpaces): Helllllll-ooooo Lab Spaces! (Yep, I moved to LabSpaces in August)

Sept (X-posted): I know I have been a little absent lately. We are in the final stages of closing on the new house. (My blogging gets a little thin here since I am in middle of my three-stage move)

Oct: I didn't blog in October. I was on death's doorstep.

Nov (LabSpaces): Yes.. I am alive. (I recover from Pertussis)

Dec (TTJYEL): So what have I been up to now that I am feeling better? (I begin my series on The Money Pit)


What a year! Highs and lows that is for sure.
Here is looking forward to a 2011. IT already looks like it is going to be just as exciting. yikes.
