A day off every now and then is NICE. - Walking on the Edge
I don't really have a plan...

A day off every now and then is NICE.
You know what I like the best about this day off? Is that my workplace is LOCKED, i.e. I couldn't go in and do my hours even if I wanted to! Therefore, I don't have to feel bad about not getting my overtime hours in yet. WHEE. (I've been working a lot of hours the last few weeks to get the permitted overtime in. But let me tell you, the paycheck is WORTH IT.)

In other, much more fun/interesting news, here's an interview on blogcritics.org with one of my favorite people, cleolinda Jones. Check it out!

And now, I'm going to find some early dinner.

Thanks! How are things going for you in that dept?

I'm a fulltime paralegal, but! I passed the bar of the state that I'm currently working in (because I didn't yet have reciprocity) so I'm eligible to be promoted to an attorney's position. They told me last week that the boss needed to sit down with the proper person to keep the process moving forward this week (she was off last week), but I haven't heard anything more about it at the moment (that's not surprising though, it's a large school system and subject to weird hiring rules/bureaucratic nightmares).

So fulltime is good, promise of promotion -- also good, and the hardest part would have been to actually get *in* the place in the first instance. So life is behaving itself in the work department.

(And being a school system, we get some of the school holidays... including the last week of the year off, paid! Of course, I have to wait six months to accrue even one day of vacation, so it kind of evens out at the beginning. ;) )

The only random thought in it is that if the lead counsel leaves, there's the possibility that the newcomer would want to get rid of everyone in the office and start fresh. But then again, I was looking for a job when I found this one and there's not much sense in worrying about things until they actually look imminent. I'll just keep my ears open in case something else does seem like it would be a better fit too.

This all sounds like very good news! I am wishing you mega-luck over here! And yeah, try not to worry too much about being ousted unless it looks likely. :)
