Today was my birthday! It was a pretty uneventful day. I had a brief that I HAD to finish yesterday, so I went into the office for about 7 hours, and promised myself I'd finish it last night after dinner (at a friend's house). But then I came home and laid down with Sammie B to get her to sleep (promising myself I'd just "nap" for an hour) and ended up sleeping all night. . . I woke up often (kept re-setting my cell phone telling myself "one more hour and I'll really get up and write") but then kept saying "It's almost my birthday! I should sleep!" So, today I had to scramble on the brief, and still am . . . it's a doozy. Brian asked what I wanted to do tonight, and I said, "NOTHING." So, we ordered pizza, and then I said, "I want a birthday nap!" I ended up sleeping all evening (delicious) but am now finishing the brief. I will likely be up all night, but the flourless chocolate cake + lots of diet coke are making it better . . . and besides, my birthday is almost over (less than an hour left)!
I did have a VERY special visitor for lunch at the office today, which was fabulous. If only she could write summary judgment briefs . . .
