Mistake?

I'm beginning to wonder if agreeing to be on two grant review panels in the same month I have a grant due was one...

Bro....what made think that was a good idea!!!

I had good reasons, honest. One panel I'm doing for career advancement reasons. The second is for a foundation that's having a hard time recruiting panel members and who essentially begged me to do it.

It'll all get done. I'm ahead of schedule on the reviewing and the grant writing is progressing more or less on track.

You'll get there... it may not have been a great idea, but sometimes life doesn't give us the option to choose good ideas.

Yikes! That sounds awful!!!

It's not so bad. I started early on the reviewing and have just uploaded my last review for panel #1 (which is the bigger workload). I wouldn't recommend it though... :-)

I won't pile on. I'll just say you're a very dedicated scientist - a model for the rest of us.

Milo,
I just snorted coffee over one of the grants... Now I have to download it again.
