Thesis Managed

Posted on May 26, 2009. 13 comments

I finished the first draft of my Thesis this weekend. Finally.
We spent the remainder of the holiday weekend relaxing.

This shot was taken at the Nixon Library in Yorba Linda.

My only wish is that it was possible to capture the aroma of the flowers all around us.
In other news I got a wild hair and signed up for the Sock Summit this morning. I explained it to the Husband the following way: it was like buying tickets to a Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd show. Only replace Zeppelin with Meg Swansen and Pink Floyd with Judith Mackenzie McCuin.
A suitable reward for thesis finishing, don't you think?

    Congrats and way to go!! I’d say you definitely deserve Sock Summit- lucky girl- I’ll have to live vicariously through you then.

    You are so funny! LOL about the explanation to the hubby. I just wouldn’t be able to justify it to my hubby. East to West coast? He would want to come along and we just don’t have the vacation time. I would LOVE to have a class with Judith Mackenzie McCuin. Have a great time!

    Congratulations on all counts! That’s wonderful!
    I tried to explain to my hubby what it was like talking to Barbara Walker on the phone once: it was like calling the White House and being connected straight through to the President.

    Congratulations!! Finishing the first draft of your thesis is like seeing the finish line of a marathon. Keep up the good work, and yeehaw.
    I think the Sock Summit is very suitable as a reward and I’m still boggling over who all they got to teach. Unbelievable.
