Day 47-50: Paletter

Okay! It’s a Thursday evening. Solo parenting is over. My partner is back in town. The kids are in bed. Tina Turner is playing over the wireless. I’m the last one awake. Time for an R post, because that’s just the kind of girl I am. As usual, my inspiration is the wonderful #rstats twitter community, and today’s discovery was prompted by this very fun tweet by Natalie Pilakouta: It's conference season!

Day 39-46: On error bars and other simple data summaries

This series of posts has been on hold for the last few days because I’ve been solo parenting and had a few deadlines at work. I have no idea how single parents cope. It’s not like this is my first time at the rodeo, of course - probably the roughest solo parenting exercise was living out of the back of a RAV4 with two kids while trying to sell a house and move across the country (that one was tricky) - but every time my partner is gone for more than a few days I start to notice the extra workload, and all the optional things like writing blog posts or taking a shower tend to get put on hold.
