Day One Done. - Blather. Rants. Repeat.
A Møøse once bit my sister ...
Day One Done.
After a simply beautiful-weathery holiday weekend, my Helluva Workweek began first thing this morning with some pretty massive rain and a return to the Muggies that had marked most of the last half of June. Our weekend work on the front gutter proved to have worked, as there was mere dripping from the front of the house rather than the outright waterfall of recent months (okay, years); and I dodged the rain for my two early stops for court and client, but not the humidity that followed me home.

Tomorrow will be the longest and worst of this week's run: I have two court hearings at 9 and 10, the earlier requiring me to be at our office on the other side of Rochester by close to 8; then follow two important client meetings at 1 and 2. Then I have to be back there the next day, while still finding time before the end of the day to file and serve papers in the case here involving tomorrow's 2:00 appointment.

At least it looks like I've gotten out of a third straight Rochester trip on Thursday, assuming nobody files opposition to my motion in the next three hours. I've seen dumber things happen than that.

One dumb thing we didn't see was the Guardians of the Galaxy sneak preview; they overbooked the auditorium, and it was sold out by the time we showed up slightly late to avoid the half hour of trailers.  We're on a list for a second screening, though, so we'll see if we see.

We instead re-watched the Orphan Black pilot. Amazing how much Sarah has been through since then, and we still don't know the half of her story for her missing almost-year before she jumped in to the plot.

Calling it a Muggy night. To be followed, no doubt, by Tuggy, Wiggy, Thuggy and Friggy.

Long day coming... ick. Mine was today.

Yes, it will be a muggy week.

You are in court so often, have to do the usual lawyer work, family stuff, fixing the house, and you also post a lot - usually lengthy posts too! Do you ever sleep?!

Got a good eight hours in last night. Granted, in installments of roughly 3, 2, 2 and 1 hours, but it adds up:)

Are you getting up due to frequent urination or because you find that you just have to DO something like post or paint or fiddle with the wife?

Frequent urination, indeed, but not mine. The dog's getting older and I can now count on at least one Gotta Go Out in the wee (so to speak) hours, sometimes more, especially if she's on one med or another. This was the drill with the even older dog we had to put down last year, but Ebony is just more pleasant about the business; she comes in quicker, doesn't bark as much outside, and settles back to sleep pretty quickly whereas Tasha took her wakies as an excuse to beg for breakfast sooner.

I had a dog that went through that too. What I did was get him a doggie urination and poop pad. It took me a bit to train him to use it, but I eventually did. He used it until near the end of his life.
