A bunch of debt?  A big drought?  A boring discussion? Anxious bout dogs?

There are so many things that ABD could actually stand for, but here, in this household it means All But Done!  In truth, it is like purgatory, the dreaded pit stop on the way to heaven that can linger for years and years depending on how quickly your advisor (God) forgives.  Thankfully, Kim’s advisor isn’t a hell and brimstone kind of gal.

Kim is plugging along – Kim’s proposal defense was this week – which she passed of course.  I’m told it was exemplary!  All this means that the timeline is going according to plan.  Another week and a half and I take the LSAT.  Someday things may calm down.  I’m thinking it might not be until May 7th, 2010.

Yep!  May 7th.  It is when ABD Kim becomes PhD Kim
