Re: What Do You Do All Day?

I already posted my day for a non-working day. Hard to say I have a typical work day anymore, but yesterday:

--got up at 5:45 with the dogs. Took shower and let them out. Ate my figs and milk breakfast.
--got DH up at 6:15 and made him take me the two miles to work--too humid out to walk yesterday
--6:20 A fax was sitting on my desk. A client got a nastygram from someone. Looked at what else was waiting for me to do and got to work on client emergency. Checked this board. Checked my email.
--8:00 said hi to secretary and told her would be some rush matters to type but I hadn't started on them yet. She rolled her eyes.
--8:05 talked to client about nastygram, litigation issues and strategy.
--8:30-12:00 investigated backround facts for client emergency and worked on memo to client with recommendations. Provided dictation to secretary to type.
--8:30-12:00 also answered numerous unrelated telephone calls. Tell visitors to my office to go away, I'm busy.
--12:00 lunch meeting with fatty food
-- 1:00-5:15 pm work on misc. matters. BS'd with DH a little on the phone. Caught up with co-workers I had blown off in the morning. Reviewed draft materials from secretary. Edited and returned for revisions. Dictated some letters. Checked out some law. Confered with some clients. Thought about recumbent bicycles.
--5:15 called DH to pick me up--way too hot to walk in a suit.
-- 5:20 ditched the clone clothes and went for a short walk in the heat. Watered yard and pulled a few weeds.
--6:00 ate beans and read new consumer reports and WSJ. Fed and teased the dogs.
--7:00pm -8:00 Complained about the heat. Putzed in the yard. Talked to DH about 5 figure drop in net worth in one day due to volitility. Listened to him talk about how the stock market is going to drop--any day now!!! Or maybe not!!! (sorry Greg).
--8:30 plus NOYDB



No more lawyer stuff, no more political stuff, so no more CYA
