One of my goals this year has been to document every holiday. I missed 4th of July, but otherwise I have been consistent.
I woke up at 6:30 and completely forgot I was documenting today. I got out of bed, made myself coffee, read TIFU on reddit, and then got this text message from my boyfriend which for some reason reminded me I had planned to document today. My first felony jury trial starts today, so he was wishing me luck!
I pick out my clothes and get my face done.
As the finishing touches are coming together (really, figuring out which blazer to wear with my dress,) I decide I had what I have on, so I switch to this pink floral lularoe dress.
At about 7:45 I'm ready to go. I go outside, get in my car, and take my short drive to work.
I get to my office within 10 minutes and get settled for the morning.
I get my trial binder nice and organized.
I have some time to kill before going into court, so I do some mod stuff on the community.
While everyone is in court, I sneak into Dale's office and take a picture of my outfit for this week's challenge in his full length mirror.
At some point I get called into the courtroom. The judge tells us to come back at 11. I decide to have a cup of coffee in the meantime.
While we were in court, the judge gave us our schedule for the next few weeks. Basically, we're in trial just for a few hours today, all day Tuesday, all day Thursday, and then Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday next week. We'll see where it goes from there.
Much to my disappointment, I forgot to take a picture of lunch. I had made homemade black squid ink noodles the night before, so I had the leftovers for lunch. It was super Halloweeny. All you get to see is my garbage.
After lunch I was in court for an hour where we did just the very preliminary stages of jury selection. The judge had to leave at 2 though, so we went into recess very early.
I worked on some more jury questions and my opening statement for the trial.
I sneak out of work about an hour early.
Before going home, I decide to do a drive by of the crime scene for my trial.
And also before I head home, I stop at Castenada's and get two burritos: one for dinner tonight and one for lunch for the next two days. I don't really cook when I'm in trial.
I check my mail and then proceed to toss the junk and bills.
When I get inside, Isabelle is quite happy to see me!
I change into the quickly thought out Halloween costume, so I'm not like some scrooge when trick-or-treaters come to my door.
And I even get my Halloween candy all ready to go.
I watch Halloween on Hulu and eat my burrito.
At this point it's getting dark out and there have been zero trick-or-treaters. So I jump in the shower.
After the shower, I organize my drawers. Justin's moving in with me after Christmas and I need to make space for him. I make space for him in the drawers tonight, though it does involve me saying goodbye to a pile of stuff I don't wear anymore.
I sit down and watch more Halloween on Hulu, this time with a glass of wine.
After I've finished my wine, I load the dishwasher.
It feels like time to get into bed. So I curl up with my new book.
Someone else comes and curls up with me too.
And then I decide bedtime is more fun with ice cream.
I update my poshmark page.
And just before 9:30 I decide it's time to get some sleep and rest up for trial tomorrow!
