life is bigger

So, I’ve been AWOL a bit recently. Part of it is paralysis; there’s actually a tremendous amount of material I could be blogging about, but since I’m not usually a fan of the linkdump, I don’t know where to start. But the main issue at present is that we have a six week baby in the house who hasn’t figured out the function of that giant yellow object in the sky, not to mention the fact that we are moving our household from Texas to Wisconsin for my wife’s residency, in less than three weeks. Related to this is the postdoc position I am trying to wind down and make sure I leave here with all i’s dotted and t’s crossed. So, things are a bit hectic to say the least.

That said, though, I intend to take some time today and fire off a few posts. Please bear with me πŸ™‚ I haven’t abandoned this property!

UPDATE: I wrote this post without even realizing that my site was down. Its funny that while I personally am too CPU-limited to blog, my blog is being disabled by Dreamhost for consuming too many server resources. I am trying to resolve the issue with DH…

UPDATE: thanks, Astro, for noticing. I feel loved πŸ™‚ OK I switched to the simplest theme I could find and deactivated all my plugins. Even my beloved Textile (though Akismet stays). And voila, we are back. Now I have to debug the site and figure out which plugin was causing the resource hogging.

  1. I figured you were busy with the new kid. Good to see you back, and good luck with your move.

  2. Welcome back! I figured you hit some kind of limit with your host, and I’m not surprised that it was a CPU limit.

    I look forward to more posts!

  3. Wisconsin is away from one set of grandparents. Is it closer to the other than Houston?

    (Somehow I had gotten the impression that Houston was your wife’s residency. I must be out of phase.)

  4. actually you’re right, Steven – my wife did her first year of residency (internal medicine) last year in Galveston at UTMB. Then we had a one year interlude, which ends now. Just enough time for a baby πŸ™‚ Now we are headed to WI for her residency years 2-4, in dermatology. I’ll keep busy during year 1 taking care of the baby and working on some manuscripts in collaboration with my present employer, a continuation of my postdoc work. That will also give me time to find something more substantial for years 2 and 3.

    My parents are in Chicago, which is nearby but not as close as my inlaws were to us in Houston. So we will be more isolated, but not completely alone. As you might imagine, my inlaws are depressed… and my parents are ecstatic πŸ™‚
