I'm baaaaaaaacccck! And the Universe has spoken.

Wow, I can't believe I haven't posted since February.  Apparently I've been busy.  I have a list of blog subjects but I just haven't felt inspired, and since I write so much for a living, I have to feel inspired to sit down and write for fun.

Project Pound Loss Week 25: I suck it!  Two steps forward then one step back.  Down, then up.  I've clearly lost focus but I haven't given up!  My Weight Watchers buddy is doing amazingly well, but I am not.  I had an epiphany: Weight Watchers doesn't work if you don't work the program.  Duh.

It's T minus 20 days until another big career move.  After 2 years practicing on my own, after 6 months of not really working, I'm going back to employee status starting July 1.  The Universe kept tossing life preservers to me and they all brought me back to the same place: I want and need the security (however fleeting) that full-time employment brings.  My clients that were coming out of the woodwork don't pay. I hardly made any money last year, but I made enough to get drilled by self-employment taxes.  Another law firm in my town closed, once again flooding the legal community with smart, qualified lawyers.  So I took the risk and asked for what I wanted: a full-time position with the firm where I've been contracting part-time for the past two years.  And they said yes.  As a result, my calendar has exploded and I am a very busy woman.

I hope to get back to regular blogging ... it's a sweet release for me.  Plus, I have some great stories to share.
