The Times, They Are A-Changin'

This week I have been training my replacement at work and slowly transitioning into my Advocacy Supervisor role.  I have switched places in the office, attended my first training and soon I will have cases assigned to me.  It's a big week!  I am thrilled to be starting a new chapter in my career and to truly make an impact in the lives of foster children.  What more could I ask for, really?

Outside of my work world, Prop 8 was declared unconstitutional yesterday (yipee!) and now it goes to the Supreme Court.  I am crossing my fingers that marriage equality returns to California.  It was an exciting day, but as always, it's a waiting game.  Angela and I so badly want to get married and to celebrate our love in the presence of our family and friends.  We don't just want to have a ceremony for a union that is not recognized by the state of California.  We want, and deserve, the real thing.   I hope that day comes soon. 

On top of my transition at work I have been training as always.  I ran on Monday, which is typically my day off and woke up Tuesday morning before work to squeeze in a run.  Tonight I work on my speed and I plan to watch some Glee to get me moving.  This Sunday is the San Dieguito Half Marathon and I'm crazy nervous for those hills still (no matter what anybody says).  I have Monday off of work for some court holiday and I'm going to brunch with girlfriends and shopping for some new suits since I'll be in court pretty frequently now.  I love having an extra day off on the weekend!  It makes the next week that much brighter. 

Who else has Monday off?  What will you be doing?


  1. The awesome new position comes with an excuse to go shopping, too???? BONUS! :)

    I don't have this Monday off, but I get off the next Monday for President's Day. Wahoo!

  2. I have all of next week off- I'm a teacher!

    I was listening to something on the radio about gay marriage this morning that I thought was really interesting. There are so many heterosexual people, like myself, who have absolutely no issues with gay marriage at all, yet we do nothing! Sure, I post links on Facebook occasionally and am willing to talk it up, but I don't DO anything. It really made me think. I need to go write a congressman or something!

  3. Your pictures from your last run are awesome, you seriously run in the best places!

    And that is awesome about Prop 8 being repealed! I hope the Supreme Court upholds the ruling! Rest assured that I voted no on that proposition when we voted, can't believe that Prop passed in CA.

  4. I cannot vote because I am not a citizen but in the last election I so wanted to vote just for prop 8. to vote NO on 8. I got into a couple of arguments in my town with people standing on street corners with signs "vote yes on 8" I would get soooo mad. yesterday was a good day for equality, let's hope it continues and the Supreme Court makes the good decision for all of us. And I cannot wait to see wedding picture on THIS blog.

  5. Congrats on the new job! I am glad that the transition is going so well.

    I was above the moon when I heard that Prop 8 was declared unconstitutional. The one thing in this world I want the most is for be to have true equality. And nothing gets my goat more than not allowing gay marriages! I hope the Supreme Court makes the correct decision!

    Have fun shopping!

  6. Congrats on the new job and YAY for an excuse to HAVE to go shopping. Show us what you bought!

    And as for the whole prop 8 thing - I am totally with you and hope true equality will succeed.

  7. monday off...I wish! my company has only recently even started giving us like the 4th of July because enough people complained.

    hope you are navigating the changes with joy! sounds like it

  8. Good luck in the half tomorrow.
    I hope California changes it's laws. Beaming good thoughts to you and Angela!

  9. OMIGOSH! Thinking of you and hoping CA allows 2 beautiful women to marry!

    How did your half go this weekend?!!
