6-word meme

Mad Hatter tagged me for the 6-word meme! These are the rules:

Write your own six word memoir.
Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like.
Link to the person that tagged you in your post and to this original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere.
Tag five more blogs with links.
And don’t forget to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play.

Summing up my life in six words? Or the title of my as yet unwritten memoir in six words? Either way, this one’s harder than the weekly haiku challenge Sciencemama and I used to have (which has apparently fallen by the wayside for us both).

I like CAE’s approach of breaking this down into the various areas of one's life.

My career:

Science Ph.D: Now what the heck?

Family:

(At the risk of sounding both cliched and corny)
I am blessed. I am blessed.

Summing up my life right now:

Lucky gal—trying to remember it.

Making it up as I go.

Summing up my thoughts at this very instant:
My kids are napping—pure bliss.

It seems most people I know have already been tagged for this. . . but if you haven't, consider yourself tagged!

Blessed two times over - very apt!

Breaking it down definitely helped with this one.

This is a great one. I might consider myself tagged, just so I can do it! :)

"Lucky gal--trying to remember it."

That pretty much sums up my week.

And you and CAE make me feel lazy for only having come up with two of them! :-)
