So now I’ve started the paperwork to do the electronic submission of the thesis and wrap this thing! but unfortunately my supervisor informed me that a committee member has suddenly come to her and wants changes. She is withholding her signature on paperwork until she sees proof of changes. Its a last power play on her part, Im not surprised, but Im disappointed b/c I would have wanted our relationship to end on a higher note. I will keep going and the goal is to have it truly done by Christmas.

How I did it: I got on a plane headed south. I opened my mind to the possibilities. I was prepared for the worst but open to the rest. I was amazed by the capacity of love to overcome 11 years and many miles. I spoke my own language and dreamed in it. I returned home sad. Read how I did it…
Dedication – Working away on my forms for thesis submission. Trying to get through all the paperwork before Christmas. Going to the gym but still taking it easy on the knee. Its still very sore and i’m considering getting it checked out…not sure whether to wait or act on it.
Celebration -Had friends over for our first xmas party in the new home. Lots of cheese, wine, and a rousing game of taboo (guys vs girls).
-Relaxing sunday with a movie and trying a new tea (honey pistachio tea) at a new tea shop :)
In thankful for new flavours of tea, the thoughtful thesis defense gift form Mr. Diosa, christmas shopping, salted caramel lattes.
-Took it easy yesterday but struggled with guilt around that. Felt very inert, my brain was tired. I did manage to do some work and get my butt to the gym at the end of the day and the stretching made a big difference to my sore knee!
-Managed to get to sleep on time but forgot to pick up my new vitamins
-Made a tasty asparagus risotto. Yum yum.
-Im thankful for having at least 1 day to slow down, that our furnace is working again, and that we can afford gym passes.
