Tuesday afternoon

Yep, I should be in trial. Especially since i was set for trial on Monday. That would require the state's attornies to be ready. So after working on the trial saturday and sunday i didn't goto trial yesterday. I'm not bitter. My best friend will be flying in tomorrow so i'm excited about that so i've told my candidate i'm out of it for a week and someone else will have to pick up the slack. Jack will be campaigning pretty hard here on out so i'm the only one holding down the fort at the good ole pd's office. Chrissy is leaving the office and if Jack wins the election I guess three's company will be down to one. Hopefully Jack will still make guest appearances.

i'm still alive

Haven't checked in for a while. I've been working on three trials at once trying to get ready and not jeapordize the clients in the process. Hopefully in the next two weeks at least two out of the four will be resolved and then things can calm down

Crack Campaign

Talking to people on the campaign trail is by far the most rewarding thing about running for office.
It's a lot like what I'd expect going on a bender would be like. Fun while it lasts, but then you have to come back to all the other crap - fitting 36 hour's work into 24, laundry, auto repair, herding volunteers, phone calls, media coordination, home and campaign, finances, trying to convince loved ones that you love them for more than their ability to campaign, recordkeeping the day's work and planning the next, and Oh, yeah - Do your job.
Then after you're done playing catch up after the bender, you do it again. Becasue you can't stop.
November 7th is waaay too close, AND it can't come fast enough.
