Life Lately

So it's just come to my attention that I really haven't posted much of anything so far this year. I'm going to try to change that, because I've loved having this blog and I hate to see myself neglect it. With that being said, I figured I'd give you guys a quick update on my life lately.
I'm still dating that great guy I mentioned earlier, Will. We spent last Saturday hiking at Umstead and then came back to my house and snuggled up to watch t.v. all day. Later that night we (he) cooked some steaks for dinner before he headed home (to Fayetteville, which is about an hour away). On Wednesday he drove up again and took me to the N.C. State v. UNC basketball game (a big game in these neck of the woods) and I was introduced to a couple of his golfing buddies. Tomorrow I'm going to drive down to Fayetteville for the first time to see his condo and to grab lunch at his Country Club. So far I'm having a great time with him, and he's super easy to talk to. If things keep going as well as they're going now, well.. I don't want to get ahead of myself just yet, but let's just say that this guy is looking like a keeper.
Luckily for me, my work has slowed down quite a bit this week, as two of my supervising attorneys are in Boston for a trial. In the months leading up to this trial, it's pretty obvious to say that we've been busy -- I've been stressed to the max with everything on my plate. Now that the trial is underway, I'm able to relax quite a bit more and enjoy the silence around the office until the Boston crew returns on Monday. I'll never again take for granted any "downtime" I have in this line of work.
I'm headed up to D.C. next Thursday to visit my friend Lauren from Ole Miss and to go see Pat Green play live. After all these years of being such a Pat Green fan, it's a little shocking that I'm just now seeing him in concert. Nonetheless, I'm really looking forward to seeing him at long last, and to spend some quality time with one of my best friends.
On a sad note, my grandmother Foxie has recently been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. She's always been larger to life in my eyes, and she's never been sick a day in her life, so it came as a somewhat great shock to me that she won't be around forever. Needless to say I haven't been handling the news all that well, so it's taken some time to get used to. Thankfully, this cancer seems to be relatively painless for her, and she's going about her days as though nothing is wrong. It's such a strange thing to me, to see my grandmother sick. She's been such a powerful all-consuming force throughout my life that I guess I just sort of assumed she'd always be around. Now I have to come to terms with the fact that her time here on earth has its limits. I'm just praying that her last days are free of pain and are filled with visits from the people Foxie loves the most. I've been spending a lot of time with her at her house in Henderson lately, and my dogs have grown to love their Gran. Beau is especially fond of the ice she feeds him from her drinks, and Scout just loves the hour-long car ride where she can act as co-pilot. 

Well, y'all, I guess that's it for now. I'll keep you guys updated in the future and hopefully will manage to carve out some time to start posting on here a little more regularly than I have been. I hope everything is going well with you guys! Happy Friday!
