I'm currently at the Orange County Research Center for a medical research study, from the 2nd to the 13th of January. Great food, better TV, wifi, a real bed, showers that work like they're supposed to, with no time limits...but I digress. Oh, not to mention peace and quiet. And I'm getting $3025 after the end of it. Wish I could do a few more of these high-paying studies--they're closing the Courtyards (shelter where I live) in October, moving us to a new facility. The former bus depot will be torn down to make a parking structure for the event center that's being built across the street. I wish I had my own place.

Ours were a bit surreal. We spent them aboard a cruise ship off the coast of South Africa. :cruise:

The food was worse than normal, the champagne and caviar more available, and the loud entertainment louder and more obnoxious.

Other than that, and bad weather that caused us to skip two countries (out of three), we had a great cruise.

The week in Cape Town was less enjoyable due to bad planning and a travel service that either no-showed or took us to the wrong places. We are having words!

On the plus side, we had zero grief from our families! :thumbsup:

Did Christmas Eve with my fiancee's family and it was great, his parents gave us a 2 piece luggage set in preparation for our honeymoon. Then we did Christmas with my family and my parents gave us money for the standard dolphin swim package at Discovery Cove that we're doing as part of our honeymoon. Christmas actually works out really well for us because his family has always focused on Christmas Eve and mine does Christmas Day.

We were invited to a couple of New Years parties, but decided to just stay in and watch youtube videos.

Now we're just under 4 months out from the wedding, really getting into crunch time. We mostly just need to get our guest list done...
