I have a reply brief due on Monday. I thought I was done with it, and then at 5:15 this evening, Partner sends another section that he wants me to add. Which put me over my page limits. Argggghhhh! This is the same partner who gave me his revisions at 6:30 Friday night--including those for the client's supporting affidavit. Grumble.
I like Partner, but he is a major procrastinator. I HATE working under a deadline like this. Yes, I may be the only lawyer on the planet who gets stuff out ahead of time. Now I will be scrambling tomorrow to create my appendix and finalize my cites to the sequentially-numbered appendix. Double grumble. I guess the bright (or not) side is that the fed courts have a midnight filing deadline, unlike the 5:00 state court deadline.
P.S. In case you were wondering, SS's cardiologist appointment went great. We saw the father of TT's cardiologist, and I swear he was 90 years old, but still sharp as a tack. He said that TT has an "innocent murmur" and that her heart is perfectly normal. Apparently they just pop up sometimes in toddlers and adolescents, hang around for a year or two, and then disappear. She does not have the same condition as her twin.
