I'm coming up for air just for a minute.  wanted to post and say hi.  I'm glad Luci's home, was lurking a little and keeping tabs.  Glad the new sisters are getting the attention they need.  I got a nice message from Denise, I'm glad she's on the computer.  I'll be back after the 24th for real.  I'm at the computer for like ten to twelve hours a day, ignoring my family, or trying to, writing and correcting this thing.  try to ignore a 4-year old!  It's breaking my heart!  He's really feeling it, but I can't help it.  My deadline is so so so fast approaching and it has to be PERFECT.  I need to move the computer out of his sight, into DH's office, to be out of mind a little, and not in front of him ignoring him but haven't yet.  I keep thinking I can take little breaks and cuddle, so far it's ok, but I may have to in the next week, because if I'm interupted, it takes time to get back into it.  It's the wire of wires!  I kept extending that wire but now, get this, if I don't defend by the 26th, I can't get the PH.D and all of my credits are wasted.  My defense is scheduled for, the 24th.  Nothing like a deadline.
Well, it's back to work.  Later Ladies.  Always praying for you, you know!

Keep on going, Ellen, we are here cheering you on. Too bad one of us can't help with the little guy. One day he will appreciate what you were going through. Hugs for both of you, MK

Hang in there, Dr. Ellen. It will be over before you know it, and the rewards will be all yours. We're so proud of you.

Hang in there, the finish line is in sight and you are sprinting that last stretch!! Your 4-yr old will recuperate with lots of mommy-hugs very soon... thats nothing a good cuddle and some puzzles or games together for a whole afternoon can't cure in the short term. good luck !!

Glad to see you can lurk once in a while. Hang in there, it will all be over soon. Work hard, but sneak in a few four year old hugs. They can be the best teachers!!!! Stay calm and do your best. You are a smart lady and all of this will end in calling you Dr. Ellen.

Love and hugs,


Many Blessings for the New Year

You GO GIRL! I am so hoping that this will be a "piece of cake" for you. Just don't forget all your friends when you are Dr Ellen.
Love You, Jo-Ann
