Having it All Part 757

If you’ve been here a while, you know I’m divorced. You also probably know I’m a lawyer. And a mom. What you may or may not know is that my closest family is my ex-husband’s parents and they live almost two hours away. I have no live-in nanny. I have no live-in anything except two […]

Why Georgia Workers’ Compensation is Flawed

Allow me to use this space to vent for a moment… because it’s mine, and because I can do that quite freely and you can click away and not read. I am an attorney. You know that… it’s in my name. I’m a workers’ compensation attorney, and I represent people who get injured on the […]

Depositions are a lot like parenting…

From almost day one as an attorney, I’ve spent a ton of time in depositions. Some of them I take, some of them I sit through as this or that attorney peppers my client with questions, but all of them have created in me this internal script of how to depose a client. I remember […]

The Best of Both Worlds

I have no idea what it’s like to be a stay at home mom.  I have no idea and honestly, I don’t think I could handle the stress and constant, CONSTANT attention from a four year old.  But what I do know is what it’s like to be a work outside the home mom. And […]

Vacation, All I Ever Wanted…

I can’t remember the last time I felt this rested and relaxed. I haven’t been “forcing” myself to write on this blog, I haven’t been pushing myself to do more and be more at work, I haven’t been burning the candle at both ends in any realm of my life and MY GOD it feels […]

Kid-Free and Loathing It

Know what I hate about “kid-free” weekends? The fact that I inevitably end up right where I am 75% of my week anyway… at the office.  If I’m being honest, I kind of appreciate having J around to keep me from being here all the time because I know if I were just a single […]

On Blogging (and stuff)

It feels like it’s been ages since I sat down and stared at the black and gray world of WordPress and my little slice of the Internet… even though it’s only been about a week.  Funny that seven days can feel like an eternity… guess that’s how the whole creation story makes the most sense? […]

Framing Properly

My office is littered with frames. I have a framed legal fraternity initiation seal, a framed law school diploma, a framed Order of the Barristers certificate and a framed admission to practice law in the State of Georgia.  There’s a framed award from my time in Moot Court, a framed “Who’s Who” certificate, a framed […]

Discontent Lives Here

I worked a long day yesterday. It was a hard day, full of disappointments and set backs, and I left the office in a really lousy mood.  I got to daycare only to be handed two bags of dirty clothes and a conversation with his teacher about what we needed to do to work on […]

Defense Work Means Never Having to Say You’re Sorry

**This is a rant.  It should not be taken to mean that all defense lawyers are heartless, soulless people.  I have the privilege of working with some truly awesome WC defense attorneys… I also bear the burden of having to work with some who flat out suck and refuse to play by the rules.  So […]

  • I'm a divorced, single mom to a pre-schooler, a full-time attorney, and a semi-reluctant vegetarian. I work hard and when given the chance, I play hard... but I'm almost never given the chance.

    It's possible that I never outgrew 7th grade mentality, as I still laugh when anyone says anything that can be remotely construed as sexual. Let's face it, if you're not down with "That's what s/he said" at the end of almost any sentence, we're probably not going to get along all that well.

    I drink more than I should, I run more than I should, and I laugh as much as I can. So I'm pretty much winning at life.
