Going to Practice a New Type of Law

It looks like I am going to be practicing back in district court and a new type of law. I enjoy my current job. I like the clients, the work, the workplace and my boss. It’s too bad that the money does not go up – the whole place is near perfect otherwise.

Hello O’Conner’s Civil Trial Rules and a new set of deadline. I am looking forward to a new set of challenge. One of the perks of my new job – I can walk to there. It is 0.3 miles from my home. Or drive it in 5 minutes…and better yet, my income is proportional to my talents and efforts. Now, I get to see just how much I can go. Though my husband said it is not about the money. But it kind of is and kind of isn’t.

Here are my front door roses. They bloom making me very happy and sort of guilty. I haven’t taken care of it as I should. But now that I won’t be driving 2 hours to work daily – those 10 hours I freed up…I will try to water my flowers.

Forty-Four Consonants and Thirty-Two Vowels

I was sleep deprived today. I stayed up til 5:30 A.M. to read Eloisa’s A Duke Of Her Own. I have been lost in K-drama land for over two years. Then I grabbed a book and I remember how much I love to read. I finished 2 books over Saturday.

On my sleep deprived day, I decided to start learning Thai. I made it to 16 consonants and 12 vowels. I know the word for –

สิง แระ แมว (monkey and cat)

I was supposed to learn more Spanish beyond “Yo no recuerdo del telefono de…”

I can read the alphabet of Hangul, Ibrit, and partial Thai.

I would add picture, but my App in iPad pro is pretending that all my pictures are “not loaded.”

Time Keeps Marching On


I took my children to Six Flags one Sunday afternoon. But I ended up with one nephew and one child and my sister, Happy, and my brother, Winston. Happy took this picture of me as I was looking at a little girl who siddled next to me. The little girl amused me.

As of today, I just finished 23 weeks in my new job. It almost never have a down time in this type of law. Not a single moment to be bored or yawn my way through the day. It’s always going and always hopping. I am wondering why I haven’t screamed “Uncle” and quit. I am enjoying it quite a bit. I have a few hiccups here and there, but puting it into perspective, it is a small ripple in the lake of my work.

Last Sunday, Yoash and I went to Kroger to grab a birthday cake for my little sister, Number 1, who turned 40 the following day – March 12. Yoash thought it was a great idea to give daffodils along with the cake too. And then he got himself those white tulips because he likes tulip and white in particular. I have to say, Kroger makes great cakes lately. Not too sweet. Bad for my waistline because I can eat a lot because it is not too sweet.

Last Sunday, we stopped by White Rock Creek trail. A part of it. It was fun just hanging out there and flirting with the cliff that drops into the waters edge. A good 8-9 feet drop. Ops. I think I will take my daughter to skate there.

New Type of Law Tomorrow

My baby as we crossed over LBJ bridge to go to McDonalds. It was a nice and sunny day.

I have been practicing criminal defense for the past two years. Some of the time, I also practice civil prosecution in consumer law. Tomorrow, I am going to learn worker’s compensation. I will have normal day time hours and I will have nights and weekends off plus all of the standard holidays. I am looking forward to that. I miss spending normal time with my children.

Last Monday, I walked to school to pick up my baby and we walked to McDonalds. I will miss having irregular hours but on the other hand, I also won’t miss it.

Right now, I am watching HOSPITAL SHIP with my mother. It is a Korean drama who’s only up to 22 episodes right now. It has Ha Ji Won and Kang Min Hyuk plus Lee Seo Hyun in it. I love watching Korean drama with my mother. We are sort of addicted to it. Korean Dramas.
