In court every morning, the judge calls the “docket” or the calendar for that day. Here on the blog, “The Docket” is my weekly post that gives you a little peek into the life of the Attorney in an Apron, and what kinds of fun things are happening in my life this week! SO in case you don’t follow me on Instagram (hi Mom and Dad, I’m talking to you!), I’ll bring you up to speed on how this week went down, how I still managed to get work done and saw my honey and four friends!
I’m not sure if I’ve talked about it on the blog or not, but my husband (still getting used to that!) is getting his LLM in tax at NYU. That’s basically a post-law degree in a specialized area. So yes…two lawyers. He’s about to finish up and will be job hunting in the near future, so hopefully we can return to being DINKs any day now
So since finals are looming for him, he decided to stay in NYC a little longer than usual and was going to be gone for over a week. Normally (pre-matrimony), this would be what I would classify as “not fun” but certainly nothing to get worked up over. But when we had only been married for two weeks, it just seemed so much harder to be away for that long. So, I went on Orbitz and decided to do something about it! I found a cheap flight and booked a last-minute 3-day trip to NYC!
Since I generally work from home, working in NYC was really no different. Since Matt had to study most of the day anyway, we would have lunch together and then he would go to the library and I would set myself up in a nice cafe and get some good work in. Then if I felt antsy, I’d walk around the City and find another cool cafe to enjoy (or Bryant Park outdoors!)I was able to meet up with two friends at a cafe to do work and two friends for dinner, since Matt was tied up with classes/studying. Then he and I would get to enjoy each other’s company in the evenings when he had called it quits for the day.
So even though we didn’t spend every waking second together on our “mini-moon”, it was 100% worth the trip just to have the mornings and lunches and evenings together, and I still had the added benefit of getting to see my friends, the City, and still get work done. All in all it was a fabulous trip and a great way to spend some extra time together in a new place. Now we are back home with our precious pup (who my mom so graciously watched for us!) and are still doing our “morning, lunch, evening” hangout routine with intense work/study in between. Today we celebrate 3 weeks of marriage (I’m using celebrate loosely since we aren’t actually doing anything lol) and tomorrow we have another big event coming up (hint: I’m getting older…)
So what did you guys do this week?
