Some time early last spring I was summoned for jury duty, but being a teacher (or full-time student) I was allowed to push my service out to the next school break. I postponed my service until the Monday after I'd get back from Europe--two days ago. Sure enough, right before leaving for Europe I received a summons for July 13th.
I didn't have to go in on Monday. Per the instructions I called back on Monday night and was instructed to go in yesterday. I was there by the 8:00 report-in time. By 11:30 I still hadn't been called in to sit on a panel, so I was released for lunch until 1:30. At 3:00 they started sending us home, and I was in the first group to go home.
I'm still not used to being back in the Pacific time zone. I got less than 3 hrs of sleep Tuesday night, which made sitting around the (uncomfortable) jury room even more difficult. When I got home I went straight to bed. My part-time boarder came in some time in the early evening, so I was up for an hour or so for brief conversation, and then back to bed until a reasonable time this morning. I finally feel alive.
And that is why there was no blogging yesterday!
