Jury Duty

Daddy has been called to have Jury Duty about three times. This time he had to go in.
  • On top of that it snowed. 
  • On top of that my parents had to watch Isaak more.
  • On top of that Mica has to go to before, and possibly after school care.
  • On top of that I had to drive all over this morning. Now I know what it's like to be a single mom.
  • On top of that their were a few main street lights out.
  • On top of that I wish I knew when Daddy would be done for the day and for the case he's assigned. I hate the unknown! 
Poor Mica thought Daddy would have to sleep in the court house. He thought he wouldn't see him for a long time. I reassured him that Daddy would not be sleeping in the court house.

With all that I'm lucky.
  • Neither of us has ever had Jury Duty.
  • I didn't get into an accident this morning.
  • I have parents that help out. I don't know what I'd do without them!
  • Mica's school is great about before and after care. The kids don't have to go consistently. He seems happy when I pick him up. 
  • I'm thankful we have cars now a days that can get around in this stuff.
  • I'm thankful for preschool; that will keep Isaak occupied for part of the time.
  • I'm thankful we live in a small enough city, where it only takes me an hour of driving around town versus in a big city where it would take hours.
As Forest Gump would say, "My Mama always said, 'Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're going to get.'"

I had Jury Duty last spring and was surprised how much I enjoyed it, but yeah definitely an inconvenience!

I feel very lucky never have been called to jury duty.

Getting called for jury duty is pretty much my worst nightmare. There are people that actually want to do it, so why bother us people that could care less? I had to go in once, but didn't get called to be on the jury. I made it a point to make sure they saw me reading my book and would know I had ZERO interest in anything they had to say.

We get the summons' but have never had to follow through.

You are lucky your parents are there, we don't have that luxury at all.

Also, the before/after school not having to be consistent is AWESOME!

I have always wanted to do jury duty and have never been called... My Hubs would do anything NOT to do it.

So glad that, despite the inconvenience associated with jury duty, you have parents nearby who help as well as having so many options available to you.
