Day of Rest- March 1, 2008


Marathon kid!

My kiddo after the LR Kids Marathon!


This past week was so exhausting. I had federal jury duty and was really excited about it.

I am 37 and this was the first time I’ve ever been called for jury duty of any kind.

It was a crazy, horrible case, and I was sort of hoping (after they had briefed us) that I wasn’t picked, and actually I wasn’t in the original 14. They picked 32 of us from the 68 or so, then picked 14 from there, and then the attorneys picked a few new ones and got rid of some they didn’t like.

Anyway, it ended up being a four day trial with more nicknames, hit men, orange jumpsuits, and the like. I even learned how crack cocaine was made... what fun. There is so much that goes on that we don’t realize (or try not to I guess.) All in all though it was a very interesting experience, almost enough to write a book on. I was really lucky and the jury was a wonderful group of people that I can honestly say I’m glad I met. I just rested today.

Scott took Emily down to the capitol this morning. She was in the LR KidRocker Marathon and finished in 30 minutes. (They walk/run all miles but the last one ahead of time and only ran one mile today.)

Maradee, Mom, and Popie came over and we had a hamburger cook out. Then after they left we finished our “camp out” on the trampoline. I promised Max we would today. We roasted marshmallows in the chimenea and rested on the trampoline in the sleeping bags looking at the stars. The kids thought it was pretty neat. They caved in though and are upstairs watching Star Wars.

(What city kids I have!)
