Hi. I'm here, just not using the computer much. First, this cough and cold bug has been courting me for the past few days and I've been doing my best to ward it off. It's pretty hard though with the weather being the way it is, and unfortunately, I've had to go out for one thing or another lately. Second, well, I've been following the Casey Anthony trial, which means that I'm mostly in front of the TV and dozing off at intervals. I wonder how the judge and the jury could stay awake. Then again, they get to listen to everything in the morning while I get to watch things late at night if I want to get them as fresh as possible. Also, they're not pregnant (how nice to have a semi-valid excuse for being a sloth and a sleepyhead). So the thing is, closing arguments in real life aren't like closing arguments in the movies or on TV. First, lawyers seem to be less bombastic in real life, and second, they take HOURS to finish talking. I mean, if Bobby Donnell had taken that long with his closings, then The Practice would have been all about closing arguments, and with no room for commercials at all. Then, of course, after the closing arguments themselves, I have to listen to expert panels weigh in on the proceedings and evaluate the performance of the lawyers.
So, my point is that I really try not to be in front of the computer except for work. My days are mostly about homeschooling, walking, Kegels, and sorting through our stuff. Btw, Marguerite saw my linea nigra and said, "Mommy, your tummy is cracked." Not just the tummy, the other cracked thing in my anatomy issued in rejoinder.
