ABD.... Finally!!!

Yesterday was a HUGE day for me!! After 7 months of blood, sweat, and tears, and 4 very long papers later, I completed my qualifying exams!!! It was a grueling 2 hours of talking about my papers and answering questions, but I survived!! I am now officially ABD (all but dissertation)!! One step left!! Go Mean Green!

The first thing my sweet Abby said to me yesterday when she woke up was "I hope you do good on your papers today mommy." Poor girl. All she hears about is mommy's papers!!

Thanks everyone for all of your kind words. Yes, Erica, I am going to UNT in Denton. It was a little bit of a drive throughout my course work, but now I do not have to go to campus very often so it is not too bad.
