Procrastination.

So, it has been a busy, busy week. We are filing an opposition to a motion for class certification next week. For those of you lucky enough to not know what a task that is, suffice to say it has basically consumed my week. I have sat on the phone and in interviews with witnesses, and spent the evenings writing declarations and other accompanying papers. Good stuff.

I need to spend the evening and tomorrow morning finishing these declarations (I need to send them to the partner tomorrow by 5 p.m.) so I can have at least half of the weekend celebrate our anniversary with Josh (yeah, I am giving up on aliases...come and find me). What am I doing instead? Well, for one, blogging. Ha. :) Oh, and reading and checking friends' blogs while watching "Flight of the Conchords." Ah, procrastination. I thought I would stop procrastinating after law school. But no, the skill is alive and well....



Other than being busy, the week has been pretty good. One of the highlights was definitely lunch with a friend at Tiara Cafe on Tuesday. She is also a lawyer, but at a different firm and has been practicing a few years longer than I have, and I always really love our chats. They make me feel like I am less crazy. Sometimes it's hard to explain how I feel about my job (or, how my job makes me feel) and it's nice to know someone else gets it, too. Overall, I love my profession, but there are always trying days, to say the least.

Wednesday was a crazy day. Started work at 7 a.m. Finished after 2 a.m. Was back up at 5:30 a.m. for a call at 7 a.m. Thursday and today have been pretty boring, too. Just more work. Hopefully, there will be something good to report after the weekend.

Okay. Back to work.

yeah! BOOO, WORK!!!

you're still a rock star that you can get your work done and still keep track of all of your blogging, reading up on other people's blogs, stalking people on myspace, chatting with knotties, hanging out on theknot, and looking at houses all while smiling at me over the computer screen! you're too cute!

oh yeah, btw,
I love the inspirational "Procrastination" poster you added, it's perfect.

Work is for suckers. Maybe you should go to medical school so you can screw around like I do. Or maybe you could go back and work for Carrs.

Meh, your work schedule sounds poopy. You're pretty amazing for dealing with it. I'd be a raging bitchoholic with that little sleep.

All of that and you still manage to keep that cheery smile on your face. You're a superwoman Jen. Enjoy your anniversary!

Ok, can I just say how ADORABLE your hubby is to comment on your posts? I think Brent has only commented twice in the three years I've had my site. I'm very jealous. :)

Oy. Your week + my week = SUCKTASTIC. (Well, except for my day of wins, which, while lovely, was still terribly tiring.)

Thank goodness we have each other! If you are crazy, well, then I don't know what I am. I invented crazy. You are so well-adjusted and have such a bright future. Don't let the crap get you down. Just bitch to me. ;)
