Five out of five chapter summaries have been sent to the advisor. Step next: wait for feedback. Step after that: fill in the [bits that look like this] that were my notes to myself or to my advisor about what still needs to be done. Step third: string 'em all together into a whole proposal!
I want to complete these three steps by Monday night, as that will be one month before my defense. Can I do it? Possibly.
After that, I embark on the perhaps-Quixotic task of dashing off my very last seminar paper from last spring's incomplete before returning to editing the proposal. Can I do it? Probably not, but I'll try.
Before I do any of that, I am hoping that I can finally clean my wardrobe of the various mouse-related detritus. That particular task has been on hold until I determined that it would not immediately renew itself, and as the last two nights have been mouse-free, I think I can actually scrub the darn thing and put my clothes back in it! No more getting all my clothes out of a duffel bag! Huzzah!
Of course, since I posted this on the public interwebs, the mice will read it and come back. Damn.
