Finals are Done!!!

What a huge relief! Although I would say that I was not particularly stressed out about finals now that I am a big, bad 2L (humor, folks), I have to say I was incredibly happy last night when I turned in my last final. *Whew* It is nice to be able to have the free brain space to think about other things and now, focus on Christmas. I realized today that I have not even considered shopping for Christmas brunch or my part of Christmas dinner. What did I ask my mom to bring for breakfast? Muffins? Guess that means I'm doing the Swiss Egg Scramble! I wonder if scrambled eggs freeze well? Could I cook a double batch and freeze it? for Christmas food, including eggnog, pick up an ultrasonic mouse deterence gadget (half the world seems to say they work and the other half says no), wrap presents, buy last few remaining gifts (nothing for Dad, yet) and look for movies to record so we can watch at night after kids go to bed.

Speaking of watch movies.....which is much like watching TV.....The L Word, Season 4 starts on January 7th. Guess who will be ordering Showtime very soon? Maybe I should see if there is anything worth ordering it by this weekend for......Nope, nothing that looks particularly intriguing. Anyway, yes, a whole new season of The L Word, coming right up! Doesn't 12 episodes seem embarassinginly skimpy? Just 12 short weeks of TV that is meaningful and speaks to my life....we need MORE! That's what I should be doing with my life, creating "mainstream" entertainment for lesbians. The world has more than enough lawyers. What we need is more lesbian TV. Well, maybe I'll do both......

Random jump back to finals.......I have discoverd that I actually kind of like doing essay finals. Is that weird, or what? My Civ Pro professor was right last year. It is kind of fun to have the opportunity to show what I know. It makes me realize that I learned a lot. Enough to continuously write for almost 3 1/2 hours on Intellectual Property topics and still not feel like I said everything I could have. I don't know what I left out, but if I'd had more time, I might have found more possible claims, defenses, whatever. That's OK, though. I feel good about all my finals and just hope I did at least as good as average, and hopefully even a little better. It's a tough curve in law school. We all probably walk out of finals feeling preety good about how we did. We all probably did do quite well....but if everyone does a good job, it makes it really hard to stand out and to do exceptionally well. That's OK, in the end, as long as we pass, we'll still get to be called "doctor." Oh, wait.....that's med school.....Damn.

Happy Holidays everyone!

To keep up on our family happenings, be sure to check out my partner's blog (link to the right). She's much better at updating than I.

Ah finally. An update. Now that you are going to be around for the next three weeks, maybe you'll be ablt o post a bit of family life. You know, now that you'll actually be here to experience it. :)

Congrats on being done. Three semesters done. Five more to go. At least we are down to counting on one hand. That's progress. :)

Finally an update indeed. I have been checking in every day. You sound confident and happy. Good for you.

I keep reminding myself that I just need to pass. Everything else is gravy. But the waiting is murder isn't it?!!!

Have a relaxing holiday! I just got up from a two hour nap with my big boy. Is there really anything better than that?
