A 5-month old puppy has finished her first week here. The 10+ yo dogs are accepting, if not enthusiastic, about her thus far. I like my kingdom peaceable.

(dunno if the Merkins do that - Brits will know what I mean)
But yes, I am pleased with it.

I just finished my fall semester's work ... submitted my last two big papers at 6:15 pm. The most challenging semester of my educational career is done. Didn't know if it would actually come together ... very happy in spite of persistent blurry vision. Tears aren't helping the vision. Oh well. They tell me it's a chemo side effect.

Congrats, ortho! Time to rest and recharge now.

Emotherapy. Make your cancer cut itself out.

:lol: haha emotherapy, I love it.
Thanks everyone. It was a little emotional to finish up; there were times I really didn't think it would all come together. But it's done.

Great news Ortho! Here's hoping you can find time for a little holiday-style R&R now.

DanaC 12-19-2012 04:56 AM

Congrats Ortho! Well done m'dear. I remember a few months ago when you were at the start of all this heavy heavy shit, and the work you still had ahead of you to get through the semester seemed a mountain to climb.

So proud of you. You are an inspiration. I know you probably don't feel like that sometimes, but it's true.

DanaC 12-19-2012 04:58 AM

Oh and:

@ Sweetwater: puppeh pics? Pretty please?

@ Sundae: Haircut! Haircut!

Great job, Ortho!

Fabulous O! :)

Thanks so much, guys. You have all made a huge difference in how things went this fall, more than you know. You encouraged and cheered and sometimes stayed up late when I was struggling ... sent wishes and thoughts, gifts and strength, and each thing came at just the right time. I was terrified because I thought I'd be doing this alone, and I wasn't alone. Thank you.

Tomorrow is session #4. Two-thirds done with emotherapy!
