Oh, those things aren’t related, they’re just now both true about me.
I guess technically I won’t be Mama, PhD until I graduate in May, but for all intents and purposes, I now have a doctorate.
Everyone keeps asking me how it feels, and to be honest, right now I feel nothing. It’s just another day at the office. There’s grading to do and lessons to plan, and there’s definitely some paperwork to do. Including a lot paperwork to make sure I actually graduate in May.
The real celebrations will come in May, when classes are done, I have a break from the daily grind, and can take a real vacation. What am I going to do with my summer without a brand new baby and a dissertation to write?
I’m sure I’ll think of something. My house needs some spiffier curtains, that’s for sure. And there’s pools to swim in and parks to run in, as I’m sure Bubus will be itching to go explore a bit.
Actually, I can’t wait for a summer with “nothing” to do!!!
