It has been a long time since I posted. But I passed my exams on May 7 and am now ABD.  Now I get to write my dissertation! Finally!

The exams were grueling and I did not do as well as I would have liked, but since I passed I’m trying to put that behind me.

Since then, I have been resting, relaxing, and planning. We went to Boston a few weeks ago for a friend’s wedding, and while I was there I broke my foot. So I completed my vacation in a wheelchair, came home, had surgery, and am now on the mend. I am starting to be able to put  little weight on the foot, and I can walk with crutches.
