As luck would have it.....

I get to discover first hand (and in a long month, no less) what Grand Jury duty is like!!!! I was one of the 18 "winners" to win this lottery. *rolling eyes* It WAS interesting, today, and funny, and pathetic, and I can't say more than that obviously, but I'm wanting to. DANG am I wanting to.

And we have to buy or bring our own lunches, which means that for 9 days this month I'm going to have to shell out $$ for something to eat (above and beyond my lunches on my usual work-days). I had a sandwich (a good one, I might add) from The Fudge Pot today. And yes I got a small sliver of fudge to go with it. I don't know where else I might eat tomorrow. There are other resteraunts & eatteries in the area, but a lot of them are rather touristy, as the courthouse is down along the river on 1st avenue and that's our most touristy part of town. Go freaking figure.

I was up at 6:25 this morning to be sure that I got there on time, but I had a sleepless night last night. Between my nerves (it was something new, of course I was nervous over how it'd go) and Dh's sleeping I was up at 1:30, at 2:30, at 3:30, again at 5:30, then my alarm clock went off. Thank goodness I got to bed by 10:30 last night, or I'd be even less coherant than I am now. But, again tomorrow I'm going to have to be up by 7 am so I can be to the courthouse by 8:15 for more cases. *another sigh*

Whim, I know how imporant juries are. I don't mean to diminsh them at all. I'm just grumpy from having to wake up so early, and being worried about DD getting out the door on time (she made it, but all she decided to have for breakfast was a banana, so she didn't eat well before she went) and now I'm grumpy about the expense this is going to be on our checking account.

And besides Jury Duty, seeing as I get off each day around 4:30, I'm being told by my employer that I've still got to go into work after jury duty and finish up my work-day. That means I'm there till 6 before I can even come home and find something for us for dinner, go over DD's spelling words with her, make sure she's getting her teeth brushed & gets her shower, do anything else I may want to do, or even take a shower and drag my tired ass to bed. *grumble*

Anyway, yesterday was beautiful, though I didn't do anything special what-so-ever for May Day. Today was beautiful till about 2:30, then it started clouding over and we started getting some sprinkles. We're hoping it actually rains, as the ground & the trees could use it. And I think that about covers it...... Yep. That's it! Now, I'm gonna see if I can get to a couple of blogs before I have to get off and get dinner made. If I don't get to stop by your place, I'm sorry. I'll make doubly sure to do so this weekend.

Have a Blessed Day!

I know you didn't mean to slam juries. I was just trying to provide some inspiration (and failing miserably).

BTW, if I have to get up that early I am beyond grumpy; I am a snarling, drooling zombie.
