Counting Down the Days...

Counting down is serious business in my house these days. My children are 6 and 8 years old, and they are keeping careful count of the days until Christmas. The advent calendar pictured here is just one of four advent calendars in the house. Addison and Joshua dutifully update each one within a few minutes of waking up every day.

They're not the only ones counting down. Oh, yes, I am absolutely counting down until Christmas! But that's not why I'm writing this post. The fact is that pretty soon, I could use a standard advent calendar to count down the days until I get to start reading your URCA abstract submissions. As of today, only 28 days remain until the submission due date. Wow! To borrow a few words from the Grinch, "It's practically here!"

I am so excited to get to the very important work of reading your abstracts. As a friendly reminder, abstracts are due at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, January 16th.

(Oh, and in case you are wondering... there are 110 days until the Symposium.)

Merry Christmas and best wishes for a wonderful new year!
