I think the band shoot went pretty well, except for the last few shots where the light didn't exactly cooperate with me - but there's always another time for the other pictures I want. I had several interesting experiences in the process of learning/photographing these guys, not the least of which was being flashed by photol, but that is really neither here nor there is it now. I accomplished what I set out to do, and am satisfied that the images I have will later represent some fairly decent work. They seemed really excited and impressed with the composites, and I showed them the logos I'd designed. Later on after I've finished my coffee and had a shower, I'll get started on my editing.
Maggie is about to leave the house, she has to drive up to Charleston for her court hearing in the morning. I really hope she wins this one, we've been going over the lady's medical records and Maggie has talked to her several times on the phone about her case. This whole case got shot down a really short pipe in order for it to be Maggie's, and she's very nervous about the hearing. Actually, "terrified" was her exact word. She wants so desperately to save each and every one of her clients and win benefits for them, but I'm trying to help her accept that it isn't her decision, it is a judge's decision and she has to accept that sometimes they will not rule in her client's favor. This being her first solo hearing, she wants to prove to herself that she can do this and she also needs her percentage. Everything in it's own time, I always say. I just want her to get it over with and get there and back home safely. I really want her to win, but even if she doesn't I want her to still feel undefeated. I spent the better part of the last week prepping her for this hearing and going over records with her, and trying to drill into her head that she's going to have to accept a no-win case once in a while and still be undefeated in that event.
I slept pretty decent for the first night in aweek almost, and was able to breathe without waking up and having to sit up in order for it to be easier. Sleeping propped at an angle to breathe is quite uncomfortable, especially since I normally sleep on my side or flat on my back.
Cole and Avery are at Grandmommy's today until the later afternoon, Nathan is working on finishing the backyard fence (has it been a year already? ::shakes head in disgust::) and I'll be here sitting in front of this thing or getting the house cleaned.
Oh - almost forgot. The office is finally set up completely, the new desk and cabinets were put in here last night. Now we have desk space going around half of the room, and all that's left to do is get the new wall put up to close this office off from the rest of the house. Then it will finally be finished completely.
