Hello everyone!  Although you may find it hard to believe, we have NOT fallen off the face of the earth (thank goodness!).  We are alive and well.  A variety of things are keeping us super busy.  We’ll be posting more regularly soon.  In the meantime, I leave you a list of things that we’ve been up to in no particular order.

  1. Dissertationing — I’ve been working on my dissertation a lot.  I recently sent my advisor a draft of my Study 1 results.  I can’t start data collection for Study 2 until the Study 1 results have been approved.  My advisor lived in Germany for a year and just recently moved back to the U.S.  Needless to say, he’s understandably swamped.  So I’m patiently waiting to hear from him.  For a few weeks I was very hopeful that I would graduate in December but I have now accepted that May is more likely.  My goal is to defend in January or February so I’ll be officially “done” by then and will officially receive my Ph.D.  in May.
  2. Board Gaming — Ben is working to create his own board game that he is very excited about.  He has been working really hard to get a prototype together to test with some of our gamer friends.  Also, since our last post, Troy, Jason, and Ben (a different Ben) came for a visit.  Ben enjoyed a gaming filled weekend.
  3. Home Ownershiping — We have been working on a few home projects whenever we get the chance.  Ben did a lot of shoveling this weekend.  He leveled out the mounds in the yard that were left from having several trees removed.  We are prepping the yard to have it re-seeded soon.  I’ve worked on a couple of photo projects recently which I may share on the blog soon.  We are also anticipating having our yard fenced in sometime in the January to February time frame (woohoo!).
  4. Family / Friend Supporting — We’ve been loudly observing from the sidelines as some of our friends accomplish amazing things.  Congrats to Kenna for completing her first 10K recently!  Congrats to Jenna and Gary for completing another international triathlon!  And congrats to Jenna for recently defending her thesis!  Congrats to Donna for recently starting law school!  Congrats to Robert and Effie for going back to school!  Those are just a few of the awesome accomplishments by just a few of our awesome friends and family members.  We are proud to have such amazing, inspirational people in our lives.
  5. Working — Does this really need an explanation?  LOL

As you can see, we’ve been busy.  Those are just a few of the things that have been happening in our lives.  What’s happening in yours?
