As the more destitute of you already know, new bankruptcy legislation goes into effect October 17th. The partners think it sounds neat to work all the paralegals to death trying to file as many cases as possible before then. I dig myself out of a monstrous pile of work, only to look in my inbox or check my voicemails and find myself buried yet again. I cannot handle this level of stress very well. If it wouldn't mean I was a dreadful human being, I would quit tomorrow. Unfortunately, that would leave my very nice boss (not a partner) in the lurch, so I slave away. As happy notes, the partners okayed overtime (which the bookkeeper would never pay otherwise - yeah that's ILLEGAL) and yesterday one partner walked around the paralegals' offices handing out $50 bills. That helps me not want to curl up under my desk and cry.

The point, darlings, is that this is probably the last you will hear from me until October 17 or 18. When I don't plan on being at work.

Quick updates:
  • My brother-in-law married his brother's ex-girlfriend earlier this month. Work your head around that one. Brother is on his mission & unhappy with developments. The newlyweds dated for 2 whole months. And she has two kids. I would just like to remind everyone that this is my family ONLY through marriage. I'm being mean...trying to care...it's not working. I think the whole situation is retarded and I feel bad for Elder, who is serving as he ought to and this a crappy thing to dump on him.
  • Olallie Lake is one of the most beautiful places in the entire world.
  • Dh is working day shift and I LOOOOOVE it.
