My husband recently graduated with his Ph.D. - a day we've been waiting for for almost 5 years. We got married after undergrad and then I started working while he started grad school. This last year has been particularly busy with thesis writing, interviewing, and moving to a new house, so our life has been anything but normal or relaxing. He finished up his thesis in May, defended in June, and finally started work last week!!! So far we're still as busy and stressed as ever and I'm wondering if this "normal" life I've been dreaming of (the one that magically starts the day he graduates, the one I've been calling "the first day of the rest of our lives") is just a dream . . .
