Jury Duty, Part 1

Monday, August 27, 2007
In the past, jury duty has consisted of sitting in a big room with a TV feeling bored all day long. My name has never been called in the past, so jury duty has always been one to two days of boredom. This time, however, my name was called right away, and I was selected to be on a jury in a civil case. When I was selected, I debated on whether or not to claim this would be a hardship for me, as I knew Landon was due to be out of town this week on business, and I had no idea if I would be able to line anyone up for childcare. Most of my family is on an Alaskan cruise this week, so I don't even have the option of calling one of them. I took my chances, however, and fortunately was able to line up a friend to watch Samuel tomorrow & possibly Wednesday if the trial runs that long. It was a long day of listening to emotionally draining testimony. I was so tired by the time I had picked up Samuel and made dinner, that I fell asleep when I put Samuel to bed, and never woke up until the alarm went off at 6:15am for another day of jury duty. This is going to be a good experience for me, and a nice diversion from the day-to-day activities of being a stay-at-home mom.
