Been working like mad on the last phase of my dissertation, but I think I'm finally getting close. My advisor wants me to finish by the end of the (calendar) year, so I'm really pushing it. I spent most of the weekend neglecting my wife, buried away in my office writing, and I expect much of this week will be spent likewise. It's kinda sad, but my first thought upon having a three-day work week (due to Thanksgiving) is that it'll give me more time to work on my dissertation. Sigh. I can't wait to be done with the thing.
