I don't want to be excused, I want to serve. I'm a curious person. I like to see how the sausage is made. lol

Thank-you! I am going to fall asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow tonight.

I got my informed digest from the post office this morning, the only thing I had coming, was a letter from USPS about our change of address that says "Open immediately, do not discard." It didn't come.

I was thinking more along the lines of Barry Manilow's It's a Miracle, but what the he'll, we'll play both.

I hope you get the chance; it is indeed very interesting. Not at all like TV or the movies but interesting none the less.

I finally got to serve the 3rd time I got called up. Got excused the first time I got called up --I was six months pregnant. Second time I was there for 1/2 a day & got put in a pool of potential jurors for a domestic violence case. Didn't get chosen. But it happened to be juror appreciation week so I got some great snacks for my time.

Third time though I got chosen for a murder trial. It lasted five weeks, much to the annoyance of my new boss! (I'd just switched departments with the same employer).

Deliberations were intense. But I would definitely do it all over again.

I've been called more than a few times, but I was traumatised in a courtroom years ago and I have flashbacks every time a jury summons. I just throw them all away, out of sight out of mind.

I am pondering how blessed I am to have some wonderful friends. I'm going on vacation to Vegas next week and my friend and next door neighbor has offered to drive me to the airport at 5:15 AM and another friend who lives in Vegas has offered to pick me up. So now I will only have to pay for one cab ride (home from the airport here) because I can get the hotel shuttle to the airport (wasn't able to get it from the airport due to time constraints).



Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

What a hard hard day. I haven't been this tired in a long time, and tomorrow should be just as bad. Friends asked me to post a pic on FB, here it is, about half hour after moving in.

FedEx brought the ladder today, so we should be able to paint the top tomorrow and second coat tomorrow night.

That's just one room.
