I wish I were kidding, but I'm not.
This morning I woke up to a text message from my mom telling me to call home. My grandpa died last night. Today, April Fool's Day, would be his 66th wedding anniversary with my grandma. My grandpa went in the hospital last week shortly after I had my appendectomy and he's been unresponsive since Saturday, so yesterday I knew he didn't have much longer, but this is still terribly sad. The funeral is this weekend so today I've been making arrangements for how to get there.
In between travel planning I checked the GRFP page on a whim and to my surprise it says that the 2008 award list is up, although I haven't received an email yet. As you can probably guess now, I'm not one of the 913 lucky people on the list.
I'll have to wait for the email to get feedback on my application because there are no score sheets posted to my account when I login. I wonder what I @#(*@ed up. This really sucks. Especially today of all days.
Good luck to all my new readers who are also waiting to hear from NSF. I hope your day is better than mine.
