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 […]

Generation X-actly.

At my last job, every time I got in the car with my boss, he made a point to tell me how lazy my generation is.  He hemmed and hawed about how we wanted everything handed to us, about how we wanted the shiny silver cup full of Dom Peringnon but we didn’t want to […]

Semi-Navigating The Doldrums

In high school, college and even in law school, we had a Spring Break.  It fell during the period between Christmas/New Year’s Eve and Easter … a welcome breather to break up the loooooong stretch of time between, well… breaks. Now that I’m out in “the real world” I crave a Spring Break. This long […]

The Practice of Law

When I started working for a law firm in the fall of 2007, I hated my job. Let me clarify that I love love love the firm I worked for and loved the people I worked with… but I hated my job.  I felt stupid and underprepared.  I couldn’t fathom how I would ever learn […]

Two Crazy Weeks…

Over the course of the past two weeks, I have been in the office for approximately two full days.  The rest of my time has been spent in the car, in Atlanta, conducting hearings, attending mediations, meeting with clients or sitting through countless depositions.  As a result of my veritable absence from the office, the […]

Choices

Yesterday was a long day.  I got to work at 7:30 and worked straight through lunch.  I have two clients in particular who keep me up at night and both of them got bad news yesterday.  I do not like giving my clients bad news. Around 5:30 I left the office and drove straight to […]

Duty Called!

Sorry about yesterday… I really meant to write, honest! J kept me up all night and at 6 am I took him into Husband and begged for mercy. Husband took him so I could score a full hour of sleep (WOO!) before I had to head out to my first full workers’ compensation hearing. You […]

A Day in the Life

Back in 1953 when I said “Ask me anything” someone asked me what a typical day was like for me. And I know that I sort of talk about typical day stuff, well, ALL the time, but I thought it might be nice for me to put it all down so I can see where […]

Delayed Posting

Sorry this post is so late in the day. All I have to say about that is ARRRRRRRGH. It has been SUCH a day today I can’t even tell you. First, J didn’t sleep last night. At all. Well, that’s not true, but he did cry from about 6 until he passed out around 9:30. […]

Trials and Tribulations

Oh boy. April is shaping up to be one hell of a month. (What?! Lent is totally over. I can cuss if I want to!) First, this week I will be having my first Workers’ Comp hearing. It’s tomorrow morning so forgive me if I don’t have anything exciting to say until mid-day… and then […]
