Updates galore

Two quick updates on what's been going on in the last few months since we last saw each other:

  • In late March (last entry) I had a very bad case of the flu. What I didn't tell you was that I was severely limited on (a) the type and amount of medicine I could take to make me feel better (b) the way my body responded (taking ages to recover) because, well, I was in the early stages of pregnancy. So a belated "be sha'ah tova"/enhorabuena to me.
  • Remember ResearchTrail? Well, it shut down, unfortunately. As you may recall, I called it quits late last year (before the first funding round) and was no longer a partner, but it is still disappointing to hear. Good luck to Dudu & Judy in their new ventures in the future...
And some minor tidbits that might shed light on my mood swings of the past few months (compounded by pregnancy hormones, of course).
Here they are, in ascending order of stress level:
  • My sister-in-law and three nephews stayed with us for a visit. 13 days and 13 nights.
  • Did some renovations to the house (dust, dust, everywhere, and no toys to be found)
  • Have not yet completed (ehem, effectively started) handover to my recently hired replacement during the planned maternity leave
  • I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up
  • Bad news: Olmert is still PM. Worse news: Looks like Netanyahu is coming back. Or Barak.
  • How the heck will I juggle three little monsters when I only have two hands? (No, I'm not expecting triplets, just baby #3)
  • My wonderful friends and neighbors A & J just went back to Mexico for "a couple of years". (Yea right. I've heard that one before.) Still crying.
  • It's terribly hot outside. And inside. Everywhere.
  • How the heck will I handle three little monsters (and maternity leave) without A & J?
Ideas, suggestions and support all welcome.
