Final Mixes?

Finally got through a massive mixing session that's taken the better part of 4 days.  Are these mixes the "final-final" mixes?  I don't know.  I'm editing and compiling them right now into a final version of the album and hoping that everything is good to go.  Yes, the CD-R says FINAL MIXES, however I have about 3 others that also say that from 3 to 2 months ago.  With these mixes there were changes done to the songs either vocally, instrumentally or editorially and I've just got to live with them for a few days before they are really "final-final"!  I think I'm pretty much there...especially after taking such a long break since actual recording ended.  Anyway, my ears are pretty much shot!  I tried to include one more song but have been having a hell of a time getting a lead vocal down on it.  It's a short track and was just written and recorded yesterday, but the voice just refuses to cooperate and since the song is fairly sparse in it's instrumentation I wanted to vocal to really stand out.  Who knows, right?  There's still a month or so left so anything can happen!
