How I Spend 100% of My Time: Feb 2012

Earlier this month I had this conversation with my husband:

Husband:  Today I spent most of the workday making graphs for my paper.

Me:  I’m thinking of making a graph. It will be called “How I Spend 100% of My Time.”

Husband:  But you’re a mother...you have to spend 110% of your time.

Me: Are you kidding?! I think I spent 120% of my time already, and I am not spending any more.



I first saw this graph theme (is it a meme?  Or maybe since it’s a graph, a greme?) at the Suburban Matron’s blogHer charts are better than mine because she has a PhD.  Go there and check out her ‘charts and graphs’ label. 

Here’s my February 2012 edition:



Maybe sometime I will make a graph that shows what percent of time a scientist spends making graphs.

So, what are you up to? How are you spending your time?


Update: apparently it DOES take a PhD to put a graph onto a blog.  Once I saw my failure at putting the graph on here, I had to ask my husband for help.  He has a PhD.
