After 10 months of re-analyzing, re-writing, revising, and coping with life in general, I turned in the very final version of my dissertation to the graduate school a week ago today. I am officially Dr. Senora H-B! (If you do know my real full name, please don't share it here.)
OMG! OMG! OMG!
I'd forgotten just how good I can feel. I have taken several guilt-free naps, cleaned our kitchen, made real food (no more Hot Pockets for Mr. H-B!), and gone on walks with my canine children. This is amazing!
