End of 2013

Just like last year,  here is my year of blogging: the first sentence of the first post of every month. 2013 was a year in which a lot happened: my PI decided to move (but we could stay), my husband got a fellowship which enables us to move back to the homecountry, where I found a job too, and we welcomed a new addition to our family! Right now that new addition to our family is napping, while I am purchasing our plane tickets to return to the homecountry, which means our adventure as post-docs in the US will soon come to an end. It's nice to go home, but there will be a TON of things I will miss about living here - something for a different post some other time. Not to mention the hassle of moving an entire family + acquired stuff across the Atlantic...

JanuaryNothing says back to work after a good nice vacation like a good spell of the post-holiday blues.

FebruaryI was tied to my electrophysiology rig for the past three days and completely missed the #postdocalypse hashtag on twitter.

MarchThe other day I talked to another post-doc who is in hir fifth year and about to leave the lab. 

AprilThere's a bunch of things going on that I would LOVE to blog about, but for several reasons I have decided not to.

MayBefore BlueEyes was born I knew I wanted to give breastfeeding a try, but I didn’t have any particular goals in mind.

JuneThis morning I got the dreaded email telling me that I'm not invited for an interview for the important home country grant I applied to.

JulyWhenever we go back to the homecountry, I’m excited about all the things I can eat therethat are hard to find here in the US. 

AugustI really appreciate that my parents tried to raise us with gender-neutral toys.

SeptemberA while back I wrote about pumping milk at work and the other day I got an email from a reader asking me the following:

OctoberMy homecountry is getting ready for Sinterklaas, which means lots of people need to buy toys and the large toy stores send these big books full of ads to people.

NovemberThis weekend, I read an article entitled: ”Rebels rise against science gone crazy” (my translation) in one of my homecountry’s newspapers.

DecemberSo you know those lists that help you identify whether you're in true labor or not

Thanks everyone, for reading and commenting!!
