It has been a good week, professionally. I finally got a long-awaited decision in my favor on a complex multi-state procedural issue that I briefed back in December. Woot!
On the same day, I mediated a 3-year-old case with my very first client (that I brought in myself and whose 7-figure case I handled completely by myself) and got a great result. But the best part is that the mediator, one of the other attorneys, and another party's insurance adjuster were very complimentary of me. The mediator said, in front of the other parties and their lawyers, "she is the only attorney who showed up today." Double woot!
In other news, work is very busy right now. I have some kind of major event to prepare for every week for the rest of this month, plus a bunch of smaller fires that are turning out to be huge time sucks. I'm not sure how I'm going to fit it all in.
And then, even with everything else on my plate, I left early on Friday because I have a cold and was feeling pretty crappy. I went to take a nap at 3:00 and didn't budge until 6:15 when the twins awakened me to take them to Girl Scouts. I never sleep like that!
Feeling a bit better today. I have a lot to do, but at least I can do it in my PJ's from my sofa.
And in case you are wondering about the robotics competition, they performed much better on Saturday and made it to the finals. Unfortunately, the drew the #1 team in both rounds of the semi-finals and got knocked out. (That team was so good, there was no chance of beating it.) They've got another shot in a couple of weeks, so hopefully they will have all the kinks worked out by then and will make it to nationals.
