I don't know what it is, but I've been near deliriously happy recently. Maybe it's all the sunshine. I love spring!
My day started off with some review of documents and then a telephonic hearing. I love telephonic hearings. There's nothing like sitting with all your papers in front of you and being prepared for just about anything. It's like an open-book test! Complainant was in pro per. Sometimes I feel bad going against unrepresented folks. It's just not a fair fight.
[Note to readers: Never represent yourself!]
The hearing was uneventful. Complainant was ill-prepared (again), and we didn't discuss anything substantive (again). When that was through, I hopped right onto a conference call. What a snoozer!
By the time all my telephoning was done, I was ready for lunch. Giggles and I went off-campus to Bollini's Pizzeria Napolitana. Small, unassuming, and located in a run-down strip mall, I didn't expect much.
We shared an arugula salad (arugula, fresh corn, smoked bacon, sauteed mushrooms, teardrop tomatoes, goat cheese, and red wine vinaigrette) and the Steak Special Pizza (horseradish sauce, onions, gorgonzola, mozzarella, herbs, marinated steak, arugula, and black pepper). The bacon is on the side because Giggles doesn't eat bacon, but I sure do! Crunch, crunch, mmm!
The rest of the day flew by. I love when days don't drag.
I rode my elliptical for 30 minutes when I got home. I did 3.75 miles. It's not running by any means, but it's a start. I just need to get into the habit of exercising again.
