Oh the plight of a law school wife.
Sometimes you lose out to the work at hand. You try makeup + drying your hair for once, 2 varieties of baked goods within the same 24-hour period, and the piece d'resistance, sweetly offering up a Lord of the Rings marathon night, to no avail. Like today, a perfectly beautiful January Saturday in Virginia and cute husband has taken off for Washington D.C. to learn about election law...
But, the man IS published, so can I really complain?
Oh you know you just want to read it so bad!
Okay, yes, I've been trying to find a way to brag about this for about 3 weeks now, so sue me....(But remember my husband will be a lawyer in 8 months, so double-check that subpoena!)
More real than the plight of a law school wife is the plight of an army wife, and I just read an excellent collection of short stories that floored me. It's called You Know When the Men Are Gone by Siobhan Fallon and I can't recommend it highly enough. It's well-written and meaty--a bit more realistic than the Lifetime show Army Wives, which makes life on a military base seem vaguely glamorous--and I read it in about 2 days, you could probably read it faster.
And now I will return to watching The Office on DVD and drinking coffee. Saturday chores can wait till, let's say, Wednesday. Life is hard.
