I See the Light

I took my Criminal Law exam tonight. I have no idea how I did. I've stopped trying to figure it out: When I think I did well, I don't. When I think I failed, I don't. The exam was very complicated and complex. That's all I know.

I also know I came home to my three kids and husband, who were waiting for me, and who love me. That's what I do know. I've learned, recently, that in life we should focus on what we know and what we know right now (the other stuff will literally make you crazy). Right now, I know that I came home to three healthy and beautiful kiddos (and Scott) who are the joy of my life. Whether I pass, fail, get an A or a C, those kiddos will continue to be the joy of my life. That is what I know.

My Motion for Summary Judgment is due Thursday by 6 p.m. It is a 15-page paper worth 25 % of my total grade. I have about 75% completed. (Yes, I have made sure I am to write in favor of the Plaintiff, SEVERAL times). On Friday I give my oral argument...and...then ...I ...am DONE...with my first year of law school! WOOOOOHOOOO!

Here are some pictures of those lovely people who were waiting for me tonight:


  1. You are so so so so right about that. Focus on what you know, don't sweat the small stuff, and don't try to make the small stuff into something it is not...Family comes first before anything else...enjoy those little ones while you can...before you know it they are all grown up and living across the country from you.

  2. Grown up! Living across country! Bd, I can't even think about that... Haha. You mean they don't stay 6, 3, and 1 forever?!?!

  3. Unfortunately they do not stay little for long...while we miss them a TON, we are very proud of them for all their accomplishments and being independent enough to go away to college and now live in Tucson and Chicago on their own...hence the "big" house...plenty of room for them to come back and visit!!!

  4. @ Megan I agree with BD! As long as you have tried your best, then you should not fret, because your best is all you can give. Look on the bright side, at least you have 3 amazing kids to come home too! :)

    @ BD, you are hilarious!
