So what have I been up to?
- I went to a fun GTG at JD 2 B's place. It was less than a year ago that I headed over there all nervous for my first-ever GTG. This time I was just excited to see everyone. No more GTG trepidation. :-)
- Eddie and I have both had many Deltasig events and meetings to attend related to our positions as advisors. I am fortunate that "my kids" are good to me and don't cause much trouble. I just wish they weren't such night owls; I can't keep up anymore!
- They say that when the economy goes down, crime goes up. Based on the steady influx of cases getting assigned to me, I have to say that this saying just might be true. It is making for some very long days in court. Especially when you have to cover for a flaky p.o.s. co-worker. Grr.
- I had a great lunch on Wednesday with the people I consider my Core Co-workers. These are the people I've known since my first few months on the job; they are the ones I know I can always count on and trust. Over the past year a tag-a-long that shall be known as the Jellyfish (If you have read Bridget Jones' Diary then you know what I'm talking about. If you haven't then you are probably pretty confused.) has been joining us at our weekly lunches and it just isn't the same with her around. But this week she was far, far away on vacation and it was just the five of us again. It was wonderful.
- Also on Wednesday, I saw my brother for the first time since my wedding! Even though he's been living on the East Coast 10+ years, we usually see each other at least once a year. He happened to be in San Diego this week on a business trip, so I drove down to meet him for dinner. We had a great meal at the C-Level bistro within the Island Prime restaurant, but more importantly we had a great time catching up with each other. Our parents' 44th wedding anniversary was the same day, so we called them after dinner. I like to think that they were happy my big bro and I were hanging out together, even though they would have preferred it if we were all having dinner approximately 500 miles north of where we were.
And to end on a note of cuteness:
- According to Eddie, the night that I was really late coming home (from SD), Jack had been at the windowsill whimpering the entire evening. When Eddie is super-late, Jack just peers out the window. It has now been decided once and for all that Jack is indeed a mama's dog. And a big baby. ;-)
