Hello all, sorry to be so out of touch. I am in the middle of taking my Ph.D. comprehensive exams. But I’ll be back to posting regularly soon.

In the meantime, Rob is doing great. He is still at job #4, where he is a shift leader, and still in school at the community college. He is spending his spare time mainly in working out, and in sports like Kendo.  He is saving up money hoping to go to Asia this summer for a month in a structured, language learning program. I’m worried about that one, but more on that later! IN the meantime, on to finishing my exams. I just have to pass the oral exam in a few days…..
