Feeling low? This should help . . .

I finished my thesis this afternoon.  Yay. (Monty Python cheer).  Just a day (and two years) later than planned, not too bad.  I sent it to my advisor about 6:00 . . . and by 6:15, I could feel the adrenaline subsiding and holy crap, I was TIRED!  As I’ve been working these 12-hour days for the last couple of weeks, I thought I was doing okay: eating healthier than usual and getting 8 to 9 hours of sleep per night (although I’m always better off with 9 to 10 hours).  But I had to be at the lab A LOT because I don’t have all the analysis software at home and it’s entirely clear that I was not made for spending full-time hours out of bed.  I woke up about 3:00 am just sick.  Sick.sick.sick.

I’m definitely not in much of a blogging mood (but don’t worry, the requests for pictures or videos of Addison have been duly noted), but I had to pass along this video that definitely made this middle-of-the-night illness more bearable:

Now that’s just good for the soul.



  1. Yay!!! Double Yay!!!

  4. Maybe it’s the pregnancy hormones. Maybe it’s cuz Beth split her lip open on the coffee table AND knocked herself over backwards in the high chair today so we were doing lots of hugging, but it made it just about cry. It’s been one of those days… Thanks for the cute video. And, I hope you get feeling better soon! 🙂
