Halfway Done!

I'm halfway done with my PhD program! Yay!  
A week ago I deposited my qualifying papers. Now, I just have to defend my papers next semester, and if I pass, I get 
a Master's degree in Linguistics. Whew. 
I just graded my last HW set, so I'm completely done with the semester.

I'm going to Lexington, Kentucky, where I will spend Christmas with my girl Rachel and my Dad's side of the family. We stay at my Uncle Norb's, who with my Aunt Tammie are great hosts to Rachel and me. I love staying there.  

I'm also going to visit Nana and Aunt Debra in the Fort Lauderdale, Florida area, for the New Year's time.  I'm looking forward to being in a tropical climate in the winter.
