My brain feels like oatmeal: I just finished a 10-day trip to my husband's homeland for various family things, that just so unfortunately happened to coincide with the week before one of my grants was due and all the paperwork for the Concept Award is due (the date for both is tomorrow). Of course I could only get superficial work done while I was over there, both because of internet access problems and the demands of family and friends who only get to see us about once a year/every two years. We got back about four hours ago from about 17 h total of traveling and I just spent that whole four hours hammering through first some more intense science writing revision on one grant and then i-dotting and t-crossing on paperwork for the other. So much thinking, so much detail, soooooooooooooooooooo tiiiiiiiiiiirrrrreeeeeeeeeedddddd.

Whaa f'in' whaaa, right? And I couldn't even find any salt and vinegar Squares in the airport, so no snacky favorites to help me (I guess I did eat like 20 packets while I was there, so it's probably a good thing I can't get at them anymore).
