Not really. But beginning next week, I'm going to have my hands full, setting up a new office, painting, rearranging newly-acquired office furniture, setting everything up and finally, getting down to work. I'm going into business with someone whom I worked with in the past. He's already gotten his law practice off to a great start and is slowly but surely building momentum. I'm going to help in any way I can, including research, general counsel when he needs it, and managing non-legal affairs. He's rented an awesome office on the southside of town (Highland Avenue) which is centrally located and rich in greenery, with a park across the street. I love that area of town. The flexibility of this job couldn't be better - I call my own hours, wear what I want (unless I appear with him in court) and can leave if the spawnlette needs me. I'm very excited about this, and hope the stress of it doesn't kill us.

So this past week, I've been gathering furniture, arranging meetings, and even doing a bit of research for (GREAAAAAAAAAAT) his first murder trial.

Didn't say it was gonna be purdy. It's work, after all.

And like /all/ my jobs, I'm not going to be at liberty to discuss any of the clients or situations as much as I'd probably like. I'll have to ask him about that when we talk next. The sweetest thing about this deal for him is that a girl who HE used to work with in California, just came into some serious estate money; and since he was so nice to her, she's offered to pay one year's rent, up front, so he won't have to worry about it.

Go figure. It pays to be nice.

We already have keys to the property, and I'm anxious to get in there and figure out how much painting I'll have to do. The ceilings are 12 feet, so it's going to be a major chore. I love to paint - but hate using white, which is precisely the color we're using. Or non-color. Anyyyyyway, the whole situation has been building and finally reached this point. I'm so excited :D :D

My hair is at a weird point right now. For the first time since grammar school, I don't have real bangs. My hair is all about the same length. I feel I need to feather some around my face on one side, but keep chickening out, because I like how it falls in my face. It's not growing out as fast as I'd like, but it's now right below my shoulders.

Got the fingernails under control, as they'd grown WAY TOO long. Now they're nice and purdy, so I have a week before I have to worry about them again.

Great. So the spawnlette and I decided to take up the tanning salon on their free week special. Right now, the areas of my body which never get sun are so burnt the skin is cool but the flesh is bright red. THE PAIN. THE ITCHING. THE HORROR. The little bug bites? I have these little dots that make me feel like I have bug bites. Ewwwwwww. What bit me whilst I was tanning? Or is this cancer waiting to happen. I've decided I've tanned enough for all of us, and won't be returning. After all - staying out of dangerous UV rays is what's kept my skin wrinkle free. I need to stick with what works, right?

Wardrobe from hell
I've GOT TO GET RID of half my wardrobe. Every time I try, I find another reason to keep the items I want to rid myself of. I figure I'll eventually fit into both the smaller and larger stuff in the future, and don't want to have to go back and buy it all again. Yeahhh that's it.

Same thing. Gads.

We're going camping the weekend of the 25th and are gonna rough it out by the lake. I can't wait! I haven't been camping in YEARS and this is the perfect time of year to do it. Campfires, and outdoor meals will be wunderbar, so I'm getting more excited the closer we get to the date. :D Already packing up equipment to take, and buying other necessities. *this is where I throw in a gratuitous /squee/*

I've been up since 2 a.m., so guess what I'll be doing most of this morning? That'ssssss right. Or at least I'll try to be napping.

The best way to build your self-esteem
So lately, I've been participating in Yahoo's Questions. I'm at a level three now, with more than 3,000 points for having so many of my answers chosen as "best". There's nothing like that feeling of "best" when you get that mail :D I have a bunch of people (they're called fans) who've jumped on my profile, which means every time I answer a question, they get mail. Poor things! I answer at least 55 questions a day now. They've gotta be crazy to read all that. Everything from beauty to relationships, I jump in the fray, sleeves rolled up and ready to go. Somehow, I just end up being right about these things. Who'd a thunk it?

And this is where I end, because anything else I say can be held against me in some way, or I'd just rather not share all the deep stuff. :X

I love you, too :D

"I figure I'll eventually fit into both the smaller and larger stuff in the future"

I'm totally in that boat since joining the fitness camp last year! We've got clothes of mine under the bed, in storage, etc "just in case"...

What lake do you camp by?

The new job sounds like a winner!

I think your hair will look fab down longer like that...

We have several lakes and a rivers (I think we're going to Warrior River, but am not sure).

The new job will be a winner, simply because I've worked with him for a few years, and know how he is. Plus, I get to pretty much call it when it comes to what/when/where/why/how. :D

My hair needs to be down longer, but only grows 1/4 inch a month. My bangs are now officially past my chin. Ack!

It pays to be nice. ~ Yep...sometimes. And sometimes I wonder why I bother. For me, I think it depends on whom, and maybe I just tried too hard.

I figure I'll eventually fit into both the smaller and larger stuff in the future, and don't want to have to go back and buy it all again. ~ Suggestion: I have no idea how much space you have, but is there a storage area? Maybe sort out the clothes that are either too big/too small right now and pack them away in weather/rodent-proof plastic storage containers. Then you'd at least *feel* like you have less, without the frustration of buying again -- just swap them out for what you won't be wearing awhile! :-)

You can never try too hard to be nice.

I have NO storage. My clothes are housed in every closet in this condo (including the spawnlette's). Argh. I need to get rid of them, but I can think of a time when I've worn them at least one in the past couple of years.

Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
