Back to Normal

Excuse me a moment of non-dog-related rambling.

Today I defended my Master's thesis in Holstein coat colour genetics. It's been a long time coming, 2.5 years of research and endless hours in the lab. But it's all over now, it's official! I'm slowly collecting as many titles as the dogs have ... though I highly doubt I will ever catch up!

These past couple of weeks have really been difficult. Lots of studying and preparing for the "big day". I'm absolutely exhausted and feel as if I could sleep for a week. But I'm excited to get back to a normal life, and I'm sure the boys will be happy to get their routine back to normal as well. We are off to rally-o practice tonight ... I feel as if I want to just stay home and veg with a bowl of popcorn and a stiff drink. But I need to make it up to the boys, they've been somewhat neglected for the past while. So I will postpone the popcorn and booze night until this weekend.

I think this is all over just in time ... It feels as if I am being closely pursued by a scratchy cough situation. My throat has been scratchy all day, but it could be all the hours of talking this morning. Nothing that a swig of Buckley's and a glass of Ginger Ale can't cure.

Hope you did well on that defense. Dog dad did one of those many many moons ago.
