Strep and inspiration

Seriously?  A strep infection?

I don’t have time for this.

See what I’ve been up to lately over at the Women in Planetary Science blog:  interviews with women who search for planets around other stars, who are studying Mercury — close up, and who actually made the material that collected pieces of the sun’s wind a couple years ago.  Almost as interesting?  They did all this while being mothers, wives, and, in one case, a daughter caring for an elderly parent.  Through this research, I am learning that scientists aren’t always holed up in the laboratory — they have to deal with work-life balance just like all of us.  On days like today, I find that not only fascinating, but reassuring.  Check out the interviews and offer them words of support if you’re so moved, over at Women in Planetary Science.

    Hope you feel better soon! Oddly enough, our family is also battling some kind of throat infection. So weird, especially since it’s summer and we live 350 miles apart!

    Thanks for the links to your current activities. 🙂 I enjoyed catching up over there.

    Again, hope you feel better soon and can focus your energy on healing and regaining your strength.

    Big gentle hugs.
