Christmas Break

Posted by on December 7, 2013

marilynRight now Sam and I are inside for the day, hiding from the -45 windchill outside. Classes are all done and I’m just waiting for examphoto-6s to start. Then it’s off to Alberta for Christmas with my family, and BC for New Years with Sam’s! If everything goes smoothly with my exams, I will be done all of my program requirements for my undergrad. It’s been a very long time coming – four and a half years (although it’s felt more like thirty). I’ll return to school in January as a graduate student!

Sam has finished her dissertation proposal, after months of waiting for approval followed by two weeks of frantic writing. We celebrated with a tiny¬†¬† bottle of champagne (thanks Marcy!). It’s amazing how close she is photo 2to being done. After the dissertation proposal is done she will start collecting data, which will take a couple years but is the “fun part” of the process.

A couple of weeks ago, we put up the Christmas tree. I think Marilyn has been sitting under it ever since. She likes to sleep there, and then wake up and pretend that the sheets monster is under the tree skirt. We have some presents under it now, so hopefully she won’t be able to mess it up as much. We have her booked into her kitty hotel for Christmas break. It’s at the clinic where her vet works. For some unexplainable reason, the vet is Marilyn’s favourite person.

Looking forward to seeing all of you in the coming weeks!
