Swearing In

...as in "taking an oath" not as in "using foul-language".

Tomorrow - Thursday, October 8th, I will be sworn in as an Officer of the Court! How amazing and cool and rather unreal is that?

Answer: VERY!

Wife, Daughter, Mom and Step-Dad will be attending the ceremony, which is being held in our state capital (the city, not the building) about an hour away from us. I will be wearing a new suit that I've had for about year, but never worn. OK - and actually just had the pants hemmed this week. (Thank you, Wife, for picking them up today!)

It feels great to have reached this milestone. Odd. I'd never really thought about this one....but really, this one makes all the rest official.

Over the last couple of days, I have been feeling especially grateful to all those who helped me to get through law school, the Bar Exam, and the crazy-making wait for the results of the Bar Exam. (My thoughts are with those of you still awaiting results!) Many, many people have helped in both large and small ways. Thank you to you all!

Those whose help I am particularly grateful for know who they are, but hey - a little blog love is always nice!

Thanks to Wife, Boy Wonder, Our Little Princess, my Mom, my Step-Dad, Nikk, and Chris. Thank you for putting up with the craziness, the long-hours, the whining, the desperate phone calls, and not having me around nearly as much as you'd like. You all have my eternal gratitude.

Sworn in is much better than sworn at... That will come later. Congrats on becoming an official officer of the court. I'm so proud of you and your accomplishment. You rock!
