I expect the Labor Day weekend will be getting an early start in the next couple of hours.
No big plans for the weekend – still taking things day by day as I try and get over this respiratory thing. Probably won’t even make it to the Triton Invitational water polo tournament over at UCSD. It might be fun to watch, but with only five teams the tournament itself is just a shadow of it’s former self.
Been doing some cleaning up of my pending projects this week. Maybe pruning would be a better word there, or maybe purging. I love practicing law, but have made no secret here of my disdain for the business of law. For a couple of projects lately it’s been seeming like I spend more time working on getting paid than I actually spend on the projects themselves. Life’s too short to deal with that nonsense, even if it means a few less billables until some new projects materialize.
So on that note, I’m celebrating Labor Day for the next 84 hours or so, and while my shop might not be organized in any way, shape or form, I can celebrate the trips we’ve taken courtesy of Spinner’s organized labor entity (San Francisco, Palm Springs, San Jose, Irvine), their efforts to give him a better work environment, and by extension, the union benefits that give us a better life together.
