this is hard..
This was the week for jury duty. On Monday, I called the jury office and found out my group number did not have to show up until today, November 20th, 2014.
All week earpiece said I did not have to go. So, last night when I called the jury office and found out my group did have to show up by 8:00 this morning, I was upset.
I curled my hair and put it on rollers last night. I was in bed by 9:30 pm but did not fall asleep until 10:00 or so. Then I was awakened at 12:52 am and again at 2:30 am. I never fell asleep again.
By 4:00 am I was up. By 6:10 am I left the house. 6:30 am in Annapolis. Road around for 30 minutes until I found the garage the court would pay [think it was a reduced rate] for– then decided on a garage closer.
It was 7:30 am when I arrived at Church Circle– after [about] a quarter mile walk from the garage– and when the court house sheriffs told me to put everything on the belt and walk through– [without incident] all I could do was cry after I went into the bathroom.
I was tired and overwrought. I sat in the jury room from 7:30 am until about 10:30 am when they told the 5 jurors who had asked to be exempted from service- they could leave. I arrived home just after 11:00 am.
I do not have to return for another 3 years if my name is pulled from the pool.
Earpiece saying i was probably right about the bag– but everything went without incident…
I came home took a 5 minute nap.. and up again.. I was so tired this morning- all I could do was ask everyone to leave me alone.. many were up this morning. Earpiece and console visitors.
by the time I reached the courthouse and sat down in my seat– I could barely keep my eyes open.. but its over.. for now.
Earpiece saying one group in particular not letting go… That said, Police on the job and everything came out okay… I am tired.. this is hard..
