    I'm going to tempt you!

    Let's see, I wake up, put on coffee, eat a bowl of cereal, put on my bathing suit, go sit by the pool and read and drink coffee. Then I lay in the sun a bit, swim, repeat, come in, put on a t-shirt, take a nap, then back to the pool, then dinner, then read or watch tv, then bed. And REPEAT!!!!

    I could have come here without a suitcase. So far, I've only worn PJ's, swimsuit and t-shirt.

    I'm so glad you're relaxing and rejuvenating mrd! Your daily routine sounds heavenly!

    My good news: after five long years, I can see the end of my PhD degree!! My defense date has been set for June 8th, so it'll officially be over in about a month! I won't actually convocate until the fall, but my raise kicks in on the defense date, so it can't come fast enough. Five years seems like forever, but I worked full time for two of them. Next task: find a tenure track professor position in my area of expertise and I'll be on my way!

    Now, now. No one likes a bragger. Sounds like that's exactly what you need. Enjoy!

    Congrats, Spoose! That's great news!
