Its that time of year again

We got back from Nicaragua last night. I kept a pen and paper journal while we were there and took lots of pictures, so over the next couple of days I’ll be posting about our trip.

While we were gone, it seems like it became autumn overnight. The weather was cool and rainy today and campus was flooded with some 30,000 students moving in. My tomatoes are finally red, and the mums in the front yard are budding. Plus, when I went to the grocery store, they had a big display of Harvest Moon Pumpkin Ale for sale. So you know its that time of year again. It just seems like its come so soon.

Bear with me as try to get the trip journal and photos posted. I’m also trying to get a couple of abstracts together for this year’s meetings and work up the nerve to present an actual talk instead of a poster like I’ve always done before. When the abstract submission dates were far away, this wasn’t quite so nerve-wracking to think about. But now that the time draws near, I’ve got this terrible feeling in the pit of my stomach. Well, its either nerves about the meetings or lingering effects of the Managua tap water I insisted on drinking, I guess we’ll never know. At any rate, thanks for reading, and there will be more soon.
