It happened!

I am finally no longer a graduate student or doctoral candidate. I am now a full-fledged PhD! 

It has been a long road and I am glad to see it draw to a close. I successfully defended my dissertation in March and participated in the graduation ceremony at the beginning of May, where I was hooded. My final dissertation edits are awaiting approval and then I will be able to close the book on my time as a grad student (for now at least. Who knows what will happen in the future?).

A week of snow days

Things have been very busy around here since I last posted for me and my schooling goals -- dissertation finishing and preparing for the defense. This past week, we had a combination of snow and cold temperatures that resulted in cancelled classes for the boys' preschool AND the two universities were my husband and I work, respectively.

Chaos is ruling, but it's a good kind of chaos.
