I've been working hard, so I haven't had time to post my great news. I heard from the graduate school Thursday. They have approved my extension request, and I will be able to graduate in May. What a relief! Now, I'm in the final stages of putting together the dissertation, and I hope to defend February 1st. It is amazing to me that the end is in sight. I'm surprised at my perserverance. I wanted to give up so many times, but I never did.
I hope y'all have a great Saturday. I'm at work, but there isn't an ounce of resentment about that.
