I was going to do a thoughtful post today about our weekend. But then I wasted all my internet energy on Facebook defending the Supreme Court decision in the Hobby Lobby case.
(Can I please just say that I'm sick of people telling me I'm "waging a war on women" because I don't agree with them. I'm a woman. Why would I wage a war on myself? Maybe instead of "waging a war" I actually have a thoughtful and logical explanation for my beliefs -- and before you say it, no they are not based on religious dogma. I feel like people label me so they don't have to engage. They can dismiss me as being the "enemy" without having to consider my point of view and dwell on the fact that it does not "jive" with their world view and carefully guarded intellectual reality. If my opinions differ than yours, it must be because: (1) I'm actually evil, (2) no really, I'm evil and am trying to singlehandedly destroy the world and women, or (3) I've been brainwashed. It can't possibly be that there is a valid disagreement or counter to your position.)
I try not to engage because it's Facebook and stupid and full of drama (and adults acting like children). But I'm a lawyer. Arguing is what I do. I get paid to look for and craft opposing positions. And, I enjoy it. And sometimes I just can't turn it off, especially when I feel strongly about something and my news feed blows up with one-sided comments.
Anyway. This is why I don't have a real post today. Not that anyone is particularly disappointed.
To end on a happy note, I just won a huge summary judgment motion in federal court. Like huge. And it feels amazing. Oh and my knee is finally starting to feel better so I'm going to run my first pregnant 5K on the Fourth of July. My goal is to run an 8:00 mile pace, which isn't too shabby but still disappointing to me because before I got injured I was set to run a 7:00 mile pace.
