Why Howdy There!!

Suffice it to say, this is fitting to be posting on Administrative Professionals Day! For the last month I have been busy beyond belief at work and in life. To catch you up a little bit, I'm a paralegal for a family law firm. Our other paralegal left due to health issues about 6 weeks ago so that means for the last 6 weeks I have been the only paralegal at work juggling ALL of our made the time go by really fast but I have been working my butt off!! Last week our new paralegal started and it is a paralegal that has worked for us before so that meant NO training, NO newbie stuff, NO getting them up to speed which has been AMAZING!! PHEW!! Today we were spoiled by our boss with a fancy schmancy lunch and gift cards for all of us.

Additionally, I've been hard at work with Boy Scout commitments - staffing at the current Wood Badge course which started last week and our annual Blue and Gold banquet. Blue and Gold was last nice and it's so nice to have that crossed off my list for another year. Next week is the second half of the Wood Badge course and then that can be crossed off my To Do list also!! My poor husband and daughter have hardly seen me the last month, well at least it feels like that. But those who know me know that I really do like to be busy but this has been a little TOO busy.

We also fit in a quick trip to Golden CO for my brother Ian's Un-Army party. After 3,456 days in the Army he is now a civilian!! WOOHOO!!! Golden was AMAZING and we packed a lot of fun into the 48 hours that we were there.

Mixed in among all these I have fallen madly, deeply and obsessively in love with The Walking Dead. I'm on my third watching of Seasons 1 and 2 and am chomping at the bit for Season 3 to come out on DVD. I tell you guys - I'm obsessed. And Daryl Dixon is my new heartthrob. Eeehhhhh gads I love him!
