That’s really what they say when you pass the defense. Yes, it’s all done.
Actually too tired to feel elated, right this minute…but I’m getting ready to meet Pete and the kids at a restaurant for a really huge celebratory dinner, and once the blood sugar is up, I’ll run in circles whooping (and do another blog post).

Congratulations! That is not an easy task when one doesn’t have a job, husband, and children!
There should be a Doctorate Plus for those who accomplish it as you did.
Congratulations, Susan!!!!!!! (or should I say Dr. Bauer?) I actually thought of you (and even prayed for you) a couple of times today. 🙂

Nice, job, Dr. Bauer. What a huge relief. Another friend of mine made it through hers as well yesterday and so we’re two for two.
Enjoy the weekend.
So happy for you! Maybe this will encourage my dh to get *his* done! What are you doing to celebrate??
Aside from the inherent joy and relief, it must be wonderful to have one less category on your to-do lists – unless you’re planning to go for *another* doctorate in the foreseeable future!
Way to go Susan! Does writing a major book and defending a dissertation give one IV?: Intellectual Vertigo.
Dr. Bauer!! Awesome!!
You are someone that I hold in high esteem and I send my most sincere congratulations.

Congratulations Dr. Wise Bauer (that just sounds so intellectual!) :^D
I’m going to go out on a limb and, despite your busy writing schedule, invite you to join the list of contributors on a new blog (with a name eerily familiar to you I’m sure. :^D ) that I started about surviving homeschooling while maintaining a healthy sense of self still. I know the readers and other contributors would be more than thrilled if you ocassionally dropped a few pearls of knowledge now and then on how you manage to press on in your own pursuit of education while continuing to school your children as well.

You are an amazing woman.
