Monday Moments: Jury Duty

So after surviving two long weeks of finals, I was all geared up to relax, enjoy my family, and take a much needed vacation.

Then the dreaded Jury Duty notice arrived in my mailbox.

Are. You. Kidding. Me???

Now I'm all for civic duties here, but as a SAHM/Student who just finished finals, let her babysitters off the hook, and was looking forward to a week at a dude ranch, this is just so not convenient.

So now I'm calling in every night like a good citizen, hoping my plane tickets won't go to waste, and praying no one did anything so stupid that will actually land me on a jury.

Sheesh. Can't us moms ever get a break?

Oh, I hope you don't have any problems! I'm thinking you could probably get out of it since you have plane tickets, but hopefully you just don't have to deal with it! It would really stink to miss out on visiting HCR!!

I had to go in for Jury duty but they settled right before anything exciting happened. If you do go in make sure you bring a book. We sat for 3 hours staring at nothing and only 2 people had brought something to read.
