2L week 2

Posted by newlawmom on September 1, 2009

Is that all? Just two weeks? It feels like I’ve been back a lot longer than that. So far, things are going very well. This week I am working on my moot court entry and next week I will be preparing for mock trial. It seems like a lot to undertake all at once, but I have decided the short term stress is well worth it. The overall sense of calmness I feel this year is a welcome change from last year at this time. I am, however, still crunched for time, especially on Tuesday. I need to get off this computer and get some serious reading done tonight. Tomorrow is a nice day for me, with six solid hours of unscheduled time. I hope to devote at least half of that to the moot court memo. Whatever I do with the time, I am happy to have it available.

The kids are doing well. I don’t have a “college freshman” anymore. I had her home all summer and seem to be having a harder time letting her go this year. She was just such a pleasure to be with. All that attitude and stress that preceeded freshman year was gone. I miss her alot, and find it hard to believe she is already a sophomore in college. The boys are also doing well. The difference between 8 and 9 is a big one and it seems the difference between 12 and 13 is equally so. They are both so mature compared to a year ago. That makes life at home much easier as well. The combination of factors should help me out this year. So…I hope everyone is off to a great start. I look forward to blogging my way through 2L life and hope you will continue reading. Have a great day. (BTW – I promise to update my blogroll before the holiday weekend is out…)
