Short update

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

I don't really have a lot to say today.

I weighed in officially today and had lost 7 pounds since last week. I know it is all water weight but it is still exciting. I will be traveling this weekend so I will have to be diligent to stick to my diet, and when I can't be perfect to at least make smart choices. And then I have to attend a cookout on Sunday. It is work related and I am NOT excited about it. It is a "deacons and spouses" cookout. One of our deacons is moving so this is the send off. Being both single and 30 to 50 years younger than all of our deacons, I always feel out of place, and awkward at these sort of things. After the traveling of the weekend I am hoping I can just drop in, make the rounds, and then say "well I am really tired," and skedaddle.

It rained here almost all weekend, which is awesome, because we have had almost no rain in over a year. But it kept me from doing any yard work.

I have jury duty tomorrow. And so I am just really hoping not to get selected for a jury. I was on the grand jury last fall so I am hoping that will disqualify me from all of the cases.

The trip this weekend is to go clear out some things from my grandmother's house. There is a chance that this will be the last time I am ever there. So the goals of the week are to get my house clean and ready for moving stuff in. And to just survive the week. If I can just maintain what I've got going then I will be satisfied.

    I live on the western edge of the Texas Panhandle. We are in the worst drought in a century. Being an Agricultural area it has made for a rough year. Lately there had been rain in the area but it all missed us, so this weekend was great for us.

I didn't like grand jury. With is being such a small town, you just don't want to hear that much stuff about your neighbors. Plus you know all the other people on the jury so if a disagreement arises it is uncomfortable. And the grand jury is very skewed to the prosecution which bothered at times.

    7 lbs is AMAZING!!! That's so awesome!!! Where do you live that you haven't had rain in almost a year?? I live in B.C., we get a lot of rain. Good thing I love the rain. What was it like to sit on a grand jury? I've never been asked. I guess it would be a pain, but maybe also interesting. I'm very interested in criminology.
