All Work...A Little Play

I haven't blogged in a while because work has been so incredibly crazy.  Attorneys shoot for 2000 billable hours in a given year...that's pretty much the "good" year mark.  That equates to roughly 167 hours per month.  I billed 250 hours in September, so I was incredibly busy.  As a result, everything else fell by the wayside.  This case I'm currently working on has been a great experience though, and I'm glad for that.  Things have finally slowed down, and I've been able to get some much needed rest and relaxation.

Even though I have been so crazy, Michael and I did manage to squeeze in a couple of Aggie football games.  We went down to College Station for the UAB game, which was a ton of fun.

We also went to the Arkansas game at the new Cowboy Stadium, aka "Jerry World."  We had a ton of fun tailgating before hand with Burgess,' although the game didn't turn out so well for the Ags.

I had lunch with an old friend from high school on Friday and it was great to catch up with her.  She's having a baby in April!!  So many of my girlfriends are preggers right now.  It is very exciting.

We have a busy week ahead, starting with U2 on Monday, Mary Poppins on Wednesday and a happy hour for some coworkers on Thursday.  Should be fun and I'm glad my schedule has eased up enough to give me some free time!
