Today marks four years.
In 2011 it survived the arrival of a baby girl, though I was not sure it would. It also survived the perfect storm of surveys and experimental programs (I think I ran 15, and have the added grey hair to show for it). And it looks like it might even survive the press to tenure in the next two to three years (but we will see what happens if hyperventilation starts to set in).
Thanks to everyone for reading and commenting. And thanks especially to the evil PR people who finally stopped adding me to unwanted mailing lists eighteen times a day, after I made them run through four levels of warnings to get my email address.
