Summons!

Yeah, that's right. I've been summoned.

Its like I never thought that this day would come. It happens to everyone though, right? To be completely honest, I totally have mixed feelings and am (do I dare say) a little excited about it. When I got my summons in the mail I instinctively thought "Awe crap!" Then I realized that I only thought that because that is what you are "supposed" to think when you get called for jury duty. You are NOT supposed to be excited or even anticipate it. It is supposed to be a major inconvenience, a waste of a day, and a major pain all around. Is that true though?


Is it really that bad?

I hope you actually get to DO jury duty. I was pretty stoked - hoping for a good drug or murder trial or something. But, no. I spent all day waiting to get chosen, and never did. Oh, well....got a good book read....and it was a nice day away from the kids.

i got summoned in december right before christmas and it WAS a pain because nora had pink eye and i couldn't find a babysitter and her pediatrician wouldn't give me a note to get out of it, and then eric took the day off of work to watch her... and then i didn't even get picked after all, I just sat in the courtroom and answered questions with a bunch of other people!! BUT i was excited about it and curious to see how the process worked. (and I got $18.50 for my troubles)

good luck!!

i wouldnt know. but i had a friend (who actually blogged about it) do it in vegas a few months back. wasnt so good for her. she was (and still is nursing) and i guess the judge and other jurors laughed when she told them she needed to pump. she was pretty much humiliated by their lack of sensitivity. i think she hated the case too. sorry, i dont have anything good to say. although the previous comments make it sound like you can get some reading in, and i never could oppose to anything that encouraged reading!

first of all i love the hair!! you look so good in those pictures!
next, i think i'd be excited about it. but only $18 for all the trouble... not sure if it's worth it.

I've been called 6 times. can you believe it??? The crazy part is, I've never actually had to do it. whoever "they" are, they haven't caught up with my new address.

I received a summons while I was still working and was hoping I'd have to go since I'd still get paid. Didn't happen. I'm sure I won't have to actually go until it's on my dime.
