You totally made my day, WIP :) Thanks for asking about how it went. I actually posted a response yesterday (or thought I did) but it seems to have disappeared into the ether.

First of all, I passed my defense! I was sent out of the room while my committee "deliberated." My advisor came out afterward, gave me a big hug, and told me, "Congratulations, Dr. Onceupon!" which had a decidedly nice ring to it :)

I called my T and left a message shortly after I finished and had a moment to myself. She sent me a congratulatory e-card later in the evening, which was really sweet. I had a fleeting wish that she would have returned my call instead, as it would have been nice to hear her voice, but I was still really appreciative of her thoughtfulness. All in all, I was caught off guard by how much this whole defense process (and finishing grad school) has been bringing up for me. Lots to talk about with T next week.

I also ended up going out to dinner with my husband and son to celebrate briefly, which was nice. And then after my son went to bed, met up with a few friends, which was nice and low-key. It was a wonderful day :)
