This is me.
Work is going well. Really well, actually. Chief Judge telling me “You’re already better than half the attorneys on staff and I think you should think seriously about becoming a Judge in a few years” kind of well.
The windows are open, the weather is gorgeous. I hope it holds. Finn and I splurged on some patio furniture for our deck, which should be arriving this week or next, and I am pumped. I have this dream of waking up Saturday mornings, taking my tea onto the deck, and whiling away the day reading. Also, we’re planning on lots of outdoor dinners, and it’ll be great when we have friends or family over. We’ve been here for 7 months, but we’re finally getting into gear and making this place feel more like a home.
Finn’s brother and sister-in-law and the baby (who I should probably start referring to as “the toddler,” because (a) she walks and talks and (b) she’s SO TALL for her age) are coming in a few weeks. I think one of my brothers and his girlfriend and her son (also young-but-not-a-baby) are coming in June. July is my birthday. We’ve got a wedding in late July, and another in early August to attend. (What about our wedding, you ask? Excellent question; no answers forthcoming. We’ll get to it eventually, we’re in no rush.) Anyway, what I mean to say is: there is a lot to look forward to. Things are good. I am happy.
Sometimes it’s hard to post when you’re happy – and busy – but I’m still here, alive and well. Hoping the same for you, wherever you are!
