Here's how it actually went: 25 minute presentation, half a dozen questions, 15 minutes alone with the board. Then they left, discussed for a few minutes, and came back to tell him: "You pass." Period. NO EDITS.
NO ONE DOES THAT!!!
Most of the professors on his board have never passed someone with no edits. Even his favorite professor. A few have done it once. Which means: 1-My husband is completely awesome, and 2-WE'RE DONE!!! After 7 years of being married to a student, living on student loans, driving my laundry around, being one of the oldest couples in the neighborhood (how weird is that?!) depending on his school for everything... We're Done. The relief is unimaginable. *Sigh* We are so blessed, so grateful... I'm still reeling. In a good way!!
Tying up loose ends today, packing and loading tomorrow, driving away Saturday! Denver, here we come!! Now, I've been thinking lots about blogging+move, and I was going to keep posting backup recipes... but to be honest, I kinda want to hang on to those. So tomorrow I will post my last recipe until after we get marginally settled. Just for fun, I'm going to blog the move!! I won't disappear completely :) Stick around!
Oh, and fun thing for the day:
I came home from dropping Stephen off at school, to a very, very perky dog. She met me at the door, all ears up and briskly twitching tail, then bolted for my room. When I didn't immediately follow, she bounced back out to get me, so I followed to see what was so important...
I had left the window open... and our neighbors came by for breakfast!
