Happy New Year!

Just a quick entry to let everyone know that we are leaving this morning for our vacation in Dauphin Island, AL. Click here for a link to the great "cottage" that we rented right on the beach! There id wi-fi but I am not bringing my laptop with me. I think Jim is bringing his, though, so I will try and upload some pictures if I can. Stella gets to go with us on this vacation (I love pet-friendly rentals!) and she loves car trips -- so we are about to have a very excited dog on our hands!

I am excited that it's 2011. I am hoping that this year is so much better than 2010! But there were good things that happened this year -- I had a great bunch of students who survived me being sick a lot in class, I have colleagues who were so supportive of me, and I met some great new friends (Laurie and Rachel!). I guess I just hope that 2011 is less eventful on the health front and that this is the year that I get most (if not all) of my dissertation completed (I am bringing a stack of books and articles to the beach with me!).

The open wound is still pretty gross but seems to be getting better. I am hoping that in another week that it won't be so noticeable. The surgeon said I could start walking now and in another week or so I could start with the stationary bike. Running is still maybe 3 weeks or so away.

Happy new year to everyone! I appreciate the well wishes that I received this whole last year! I don't have words to express my gratitude! Many thanks!
