1. I have officially been sick for the entirety of March and now one full week into April. This cold is relentless.
2. Someone hit my car the other day, with the kids in it, and ran. I got his plate and they caught him but now he's lying about what happened. The kids and I are fine -- my back is tweaked, but I am not aware of anything worse (I am almost afraid to write that, for fear something will rear its head). The idiot hit my left rear bumper and essentially drove along my driver's side. I was scared to death for CAM, but she seems fine. And WHM was, luckily, on the other side of the car. So my car is trashed and Lord knows how we'll deal with it ... but we are okay!
3. I just submitted my first-ever assignment as a practicing attorney! I'm quite sure it's awful -- but I still feel pretty great. I never thought this day would come, and I wasn't sure I'd like it if it ever did. But I did enjoy the project and am grateful for the opportunity. Finding someone to not only take a chance on five-years-out-of-law-school-with-no-legal-experience me, who additionally is willing to work around my teaching schedule, is a gift. With all our struggles lately, I'm pretty thankful for this opportunity and hopeful that it's a sign of things changing for the positive.
I'm going to go have a happy afternoon! I hope you do, too!
