Culmination

I’m very pleased to announce that as of yesterday, I am no longer married to Kat.  Instead, I am now married to Doctor Kat.  Dr. Kathryn Meyer, if you want to be a little more formal about it.

Yesterday morning, Kat successfully defended her dissertation, “The Temporal Patterns of Interruptions During the First Postpartum Day”, and thus earned the title Doctor of Practical Nursing.

And there was much rejoicing.

    I was sort of surprised and worried with the first sentence. But by the second I was very happy for you already. :)

    Congrats!

    Congratulations Kat!

    Man! With two phrases you made me skip a heartbeat and go up and down an emotional rollercoaster.

    “I”m very pleased to announce…”
    Thought: Oh, cool, he’s going to announce the arrival of a new baby.
    Emotional state: up

    “…that as of yesterday, I am no longer married to Kat.”
    Thought: Ack! He’s getting divorced! How weird that he’s ‘pleased to announce’ it.
    Emotional state: down and slightly confused

    “Instead, I am now married to Doctor Kat.”
    Thought: Oh! Cool! Phewph!
    Emotional state: up and relieved

    sigh

    Congratulations to you and your wife.
    I do hope that the new title means an increase income to the household.
    I say this because Australia has a great many thirty-somethings who hold doctorates and Phd’s – but still work at fast-food eateries and mass-production factories.
    I hope Kat’ is one of the lucky ones who can use this title to her advantage. I am sure she will.
    And like your prior commentors, my heart skipped a beat at the thirteenth word!

    Congratulations to Kat and to you, Eric!

    I’m sure that many of us would be interested in reading at least a summary of the findingd of her dissertation, if she was interested in posting it.

    And her personal page isn’t updated because why? :)

    I was so proud of my wife when she completed her Master’s last year, so I know what a happy event this must be for both of you.

    Congrats, Kat. And I add my vote to wanting to see the dissertation.

    Contrats Kat! As a lactivist and someone who is concerned about my wife’s abilities to have a well handled birthing experience, I’d also like to know more about that dissertation :)

    That first part gave me a coronary. After I got out of the hospital, I read the remaining bit. Congrats to Kat! Well done.
