The thesis, she is done

I finished writing shortly before 7 pm tonight. I took much time away from writing today (including an hour and a half nap after lunch), so it technically could have been done much sooner. I don't care. It's done. It was burned to cd, saved to a jump drive, e-mailed to me, Mr. W and Mr. W's work account, just in case. We went to Kinko's and printed it (because apparently 60 pages coming out of my laser printer today was just too much to ask and I ran out of toner after about 10 pages), had it bound, packaged it up and it's on the first Fed Ex flight out of here tomorrow morning. It is scheduled to land on my advisor's doorstep on Monday morning.

I called her to let her know this and she said, "Congratulations on finishing your Master's degree! You must be so relieved! Now, go home, lay down, get those feet up, and take care of yourself and that baby!" Please note that she did not say "Congratulations on finishing your paper. You'll know if you have earned your degree in x days." I'm taking this to mean she wasn't kidding when she said I was passing. As for her extreme concern about the baby...well, last year while in the first class she taught at the university, I had to miss several classes due to my first miscarriage. I had her for another class this past spring and she saw me cry more than once as I sat beside a friend who was blissfully pregnant with no problems of any kind; so she asked me about it. She knew a lot of the details of the past year and was extremely worried about me from the start. For all that she's a bit of a flake...she's a good person. And, you know, she's making sure that I have my degree without another revision. So yay!!!!

Congrats! I'd buy you a "drink" if I could. I think we're only a three hour drive apart so maybe I will someday.
