Well, it has been a most eventful week at our household. Drumroll please>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> I am no longer employed as a prosecutor. I gave my notice back in July and stayed until last Friday. As of September 2nd, I am a solo lawyer with my own law firm. Still working on the website- not a gift of mine by the way. Also, I turned the big 4-0 yesterday. Lots of changes for me.
Why do it? I have 2 reasons. Boy 1 and Boy 2. You know I stopped practing law 11 years ago when my first son was born. I was a gifted trial attorney, but I knew I could not leave him. I did not go back for 8.5 years and another son later. I have enjoyed my latest position very much. I have tried 16 or so cases. I have gotten lock a few folks up who needed it. However, that oldest boy started middle school. The crazy schedule here is that school starts at 9:15am. I couldn't leave him alone for that long and expect him to get himself and his stuff to school on time in my job. It was also a bit much to ask of our primary wage earner- my husband. So, I made a change. I have a great office in spitting distance of the courthouse, a new computer, a great guy to split the space with me and some time to kill right now. I am currently desk shopping on the cheap.
So, how about the 4-0. It was great. Hubby, much to my chagrin, pulled off a way cool surprise party for me. I would have never expected him to pull that off. He did an Evite people!~
So, current weight is 143. Well below Dr. Smith's goal of 159 for me. Below my original goal of 150. I would love to hover at 135, but it is going to take more effort from me. PERFECT labs finally and no more iron issues. One of my other hopes by changing my employment is that I will be able to run more. I want to get my mileage up.
Lots of changes and lots of stress, but I am okay with it. I like new challenges, so stay tuned more new ahead. I may get someone to take some pics too.
