AM: Busy morning at church with my youngest singing, my wife hosting the coffee hour and then talking to the confirmands about baptism. After all that decided there was no way to pass up 55F weather and the whole family went for a run to and around SugarHouse. The girls really like to run some now as well so I bring the double stroller and they take a few blocks in the stroller and then a block running. My youngest even ran the whole hill near the Rose Gardens. Finished off with a stop for ice cream before running home.

Decided to sleep in to stick with 7 hr total. Then did a longer Memory Grove commute into work. I had a busy day planned and it got much busier. I received a call from the NIH and they increased the pay line for my grant. Works like golf; 10 is perfect. In 2010 they paid 40 and below, in 2011 they paid 30 and below, for 2012 they had announced 19 and below but yesterday increased it up to 25. I scored a 24 so I just made the cut... For those of you who knew I was looking for jobs this does change things and means I will be in UT for most likely another year. Still had to come back into work after dinner until 10pm but the effort is paying off.

No that isn't a typo. With the good news on Tuesday a bunch of stuff was shifted around and I had to work extra late last night. Unfortunately I also had to be in extra early today... Commute run in and then 10 hr of solid work without a break.
