Well, here I am, near the end of one of the most beautiful Novembers that has ever happened here in Winnipeg, and I’m slogging away at wind chill statistics.  I’m glad for it though; I’ve been working on this project for a while and it continues to grow and gain momentum.  It’s sounding more and more like our findings so far will be presented at a national conference, which is exciting.  It will likely be published later too.  However, there is still plenty of work to do.

Married life is great.  I probably have the best wife in the world.  We’re super busy with lots of things: getting used to being married and figuring all that out, managing our work schedules and getting involved in several communities.  Being married is great and if we can keep up how things have been so far, we’re going to have a great life together.

We’ve both celebrated birthdays lately, and our bible study group threw us a surprise little wedding shower.  It’s been absolutely fantastic to see the communities we’re a part of show that we’re a part of them and that they care.  After feeling, in ways, that I and we have been very alone in Winnipeg, our friends have done a fantastic job lately at making us feel more included and a part of things.  Thank you guys.

I’m also working with a fellow member of saint benedict’s table on developing a new event for the community that involves movies.  That shows some promise to and could be a lot of fun.
