And We'll Have Fun, Fun, Fun!!!

Usually on the first full day of summer we plan to have fun.

Zoo trip? Sure!

Downtown? You bet!

Head to the pool? Absolutely!

Jury duty? Ah, . . . no.

My kids have been trickling out of school this year. One finished two weeks ago. One finished last week. One finished yesterday. So today is the first day that we could sleep in, have fun, do whatever we want.

Except for me. Because I'm a productive citizen, and I've been called to do my duty.

I wanted to spend some time writing this week, but since laptops and cell phones are not permitted, I guess I'll have to bring a notepad and do it the old fashioned way. Maybe I'll get more done without the distraction of blogs and Facebook.

Hopefully I'll be back from time to time this week. I'll try to check in as I can.

But in the meantime, I'd love to hear YOUR stories from jury duty since I've never done this before. What am I in for??

  1. I have had to serve once, and actually was called in for two trials. The first time I drove to the courthouse, sat there for two hours, the attorneys came out and told us they had settled. Second time I actually got picked to serve in a domestic dispute. It was horrible. Made me realize what a blessed life I have. It certainly wasn't fun, but I did feel like I had done my part in a small way. You will be fine. Maybe you'll get lucky and won't actually have to serve.

  2. You would certainly have a LOT of time to write. We spent HOURS just sitting in that room waiting for things to happen and you can't talk about the case.

  4. I haven't had to serve yet, but I think it will be super interesting.

    Thank you in advance for reading and reviewing Life in Defiance for the blog tour this week. I really appreciate it! I'm going to be out of town for a few days, so I thought I would say thank you early!

    With joy and thanks,
