I leave tomorrow night ...

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
... to head up to the university I am finishing my degree at. I like 3.5 hours away now. Tuesday afternoon I have an hour long talk to give followed by a 45 minute oral examination with my committee and then my dissertation defense will be over. Unlike Turnipmama, in my department we still have a week to ten days where we finish our edits and then submit the final dissertation, so I will not be done on Tuesday, but the most stressful part will be over

It is physically a huge challenge to get through it, even when i am just practicing and alone. I am a bit worries about how stressful and hard it will be on my so-very-pg body. So, please think good thoughts for me. It would mean a lot.

sending happy dissertation fairy dust your way!
I was worried too, but its amazing what your body can do when it has too! I got a little out of breath but other than that it wasn't bad at all. I am sure you will be fine. (you could always hide a water balloon under you shirt just in case )

Aw, thanks! If things keep going this way, I'm going to end up in your DDC! But I'll be thinking nice calm non-labory thoughts for you! You won't be near Williamsport will you?

We drive on 380 and 80 so by that W-B town, can't remember the name, and then up through Scranton and to Binghamton. I don't really know where Williamsport is! Not so good on my PA geography.

Probably out of your way. But if it ends up being near you and you need a pit stop, make sure you give us a call! The house is actually clean, thanks to me super sonic nesting.

I don't think we will make it this time (thanks for the offer though!) but Melissa and I have talked about torturing you with a trip out there. Can you image all the kids togehter we would have 7 (although two babies thankfully!) Poor Chip would be very ready for us to go
