Uncertainty

Posted by newlawmom on May 23, 2011

I have no idea how I’m actually going to spend my summer. I really want that job I interviewed for last week. But my phone did not ring today and that is not encouraging. Tomorrow I go to volunteer. That’s my back up plan. Eh. I guess I should be patient. In the meantime, I had a beautiful weekend. My favorite summer project is going to be a garden. Actually I have turned an old horseshoe court into two miniature gardens. One pit will have zucchini and yellow sqaush. The package says compact bush. I hope so. The other pit will have peppers and tomatos. That is, after the soil dries out enough to plant.

I’m spending more time with my boys. I am enjoying it. They have mixed feelings. The video game habit got totally out of hand over the past year, especially with my 11 year old. I have put the system away for a two week break and nobody is very happy about that. Except me. I figure if I’m going to compete with a video game, I’d rather have one big short battle than a little battle every day for weeks. So I took the game out. When I give it back it will be with strict limits. They will never be allowed to put it in their bedroom again. They have a few weeks of school left. A large part of me wants to just take the summer off to spend with them. The beach, barbeques, bikes, hikes, and trips to the city. How awesome would that be? The video games would be far from their memory before the summer was over. And I would be the happiest mother on earth. I guess that isn’t such a bad back up plan.

Bar exam preparation is underway. This week is Con Law. PMBR flashcards, Sum and Subtance Quick Review, Emanuel’s Crunchtime and Inside: What Matters and Why. Creating my own long outline and answering sample questions. I also have access to Gilbert’s Law Summaries on audio cassette which I play in my car far too often. And that’s it. I hope everyone has a great day.
