On busy days in Jefferson County District Court, I was fond of saying, "I shoulda been a librarian." Yeah, well, perhaps I was right. Perhaps not, though, it remains to be seen.
I've been a lawyer for nearly ten years, and had not been unemployed a single day of those ten years until the afternoon of December 15, 2010. I can't go much into my firing, mostly because I wasn't given a reason for it. I think I was a good prosecutor. No, scratch that -- I KNOW I was a good prosecutor. Regardless, I'm not a prosecutor anymore. So what am I?
Well, I'm a wife and a daughter and a sister and a niece. I'm a cook and a knitter and a (bad) sewer and a jewelry designer. I love vampire novels, bad TV and playing the violin. I belong to a great church and the YMCA. And no matter what the Powers That Be at the Jefferson County Attorney's Office say, I'm STILL a dag-blamed good lawyer. And if that's not enough to fill up a life, I don't know what is.
Anyway, this being unemployed thing is a new experience, and one that will hopefully only happen once in my life. I thought I'd document it. So here we go!
