Jury Duty

I am on jury duty this month....ugh. This is the 1st time in my life that I have ever been summoned, so I shouldn't feel too bummed...but it is such a pain! I have been on for the month of August, and luckilly this morning was the first a.m. that we actually had to report. I was only there for a couple of hours. We went through the orientation, and then they released half of us and I was one of the lucky ones that got to go for the day! I have to call in again this afternoon after 4:30 to see about tomorrow a.m. though! That is the big pain...rememebring to call in, and waiting until after 4:30 to make plans for the next day.

It is just such a pain with the babies. Poor Ryan still cannot lift anything over 10 pounds because of his surgery...so he can't be much help right now. My mom usually babysits the kids on Tuesdays, but she is on juyy duty TOO....what are the odd's!? At least we get to sit there together...but it makes for a major pain working out all of the logistics!!

That stinks! I got some sort of survey in the mail about jury duty? It wasn't a summons but a survey of some sort. Weird.

I always wanted to be on a jury but have yet to be summoned! Of course, that would be a lot harder to do with kids!
