My Week So Far

... more court appearances than humans should be allowed to have.

... Judges who think, "I'll encourage these folks to settle, I'll schedule a trial for ALL DAY ON GOOD FRIDAY. That'll show them." (not the lawyers, of course. no)

... a punk-ass lawyer from the big city to the North threatening me with sanctions because my clients won't agree to visitation with his psycho-abusive clients, who have been formally declared psycho-abusive by a court appointed psychologist.

.. clients who cry in open court, cursing the system for mistakes they've made and for which they take no responsibility.

... clients cursing at me because I cannot get them out of their aforesaid mistakes.

... Judges who think, "I'll encourage these folks to settle, I'll schedule their cases for 9 A.M. THE MONDAY AFTER EASTER." (repeat above comment)

... a disgruntled ex-husband of a client threatening my partner in our parking lot, causing the police to be called.

The only positives I can think of are that my hockey boys won the top slot in the Eastern Conference (now if only Dominik Hasek pulls a groin muscle like he did when he was in Buffalo, we might win the League),

and, I'm successfully into the lace repeats on the Wool Peddler's Shawl.

Is it time for chocolate yet?

I'd say a double dose of chocolate.

YAY for the first spot in the Eastern Conference. I have a pre-existing loyalty to Detroit so I can't really root for you guys over them -- unless the pay off is right.

WE MADE IT IN! Nothing like waiting until our next to the last game to clinch a play off spot.

Ha ha! I have an arbitration scheduled for 9:30 (instead of the usual 10:00) on the Monday after Easter. And I have a friend whose fiance has been *enjoying* family court with his ex-wife this week, as she instigated some new custody issues. I swear, Easter is just bringing out the crazies this year. I've never noticed it before, but I tell you that on Fat Tuesday next year, I will start 40 days of dreading Easter! ;-) Hope everything calms down, and yes, you may have chocolate now.

Damn....and I thought my weeks have been tough. Congrats on your team. Can you send some good luck to MFB's Leafs and my Av's?

Yeah that's what I thought!!! Snort

Looks like you had a terrific time in Philly and I heard from someone else that yarn store you found was a nice one.

Have a great weekend.
