Amen.

It is finished. My thesis, that is. All I have to do is pull together a portfolio and the requirements for my master's degree will be complete.

A year ago, I considered quitting. There were a lot of factors contributing to that almost-decision (a few of which had to do with the overwhelming amount of pregnancy hormones raging through my body), but I'm glad I stuck with it. I had a few people tell me that if I waited to finish it after I had Jack, that I probably wouldn't. And to be quite honest, I wondered if they would be right. But they weren't, and I'm proud of myself for getting the job done.

With staff training approaching, I've been gathering supplies that I need that I've lent out throughout the year. I stopped by Maria's house to pick up some of my videos that I let her use. She also gave me a nice little container of cupcakes to celebrate the completion of my paper with this little note attached:

Seriously, what will I do with my time? Well, I have a lot of catch-up at camp. I've been taking care of all of the "urgent" things for the last month or two and have regrettably neglected many of the "important" things. I'm also hoping to get my house back in order at some point. Maybe I'll even be able to catch one of Kyle's team's baseball games this week! Somehow, I don't think having my thesis done will allow me to feel like I have more time until we hit the fall . . . but I still feel as if a huge burden has been lifted.

My favorite part of Maria's cupcakes was the cream filling in the center! Who doesn't love cream filling? She mentioned that she was trying a new recipe . . . which I took to mean that I'm getting a full serving of veggies when I eat one. It was probably the best cupcake I've ever had, so I don't care if there were pureed anchovies in it!


We've had a week full of highs and lows around here . . . but more about that later.
