Jury Duty. . . .Good Wednesday Sparkfam! Today, I had jury duty. They always seem to get me. I have served twice & been accosted by the judicial system like every 2 years since I became legible for jury duty. I mean, I know our system is built on this but if only . . .they could provide coffee & snacks & then pay you more than the $17.20 especially when "I" had to drive over 40miles to get there. Then we had a 2 hour lunch break only to come back for an hour & a half to be told we could leave. Why couldn't we left when we had lunch? Well its over & I can go back to my life. Being a juror is such a huge responsibility. You have to listen & not zone out & be very alert. Some times I daydream when people are talking to me. Some time I daydream while I am texting or writing blogs so I normally have to delete what I have & start again. I start typing my random thoughts, kinda like now.
Today I did over 8000+ steps walking from parking lot to court house & back. Got lost going to lunch but I'm so used to the city & surrounding suburbs. Mcdonalds every 5 blocks not like where I was today I drove 10mins before running into one. Now its on to step aerobics burning almost 800 calories.
God bless & enjoy everyday!
