for a jury trial… should take place the week after thanksgiving. I actually knew something (several things) of one of the four cases and didn’t think I could be impartial. Lesson learned? Reading the paper can excuse you from a jury panel. One guy got selected for three jury panels! Glad I only got the one.
Someplace I have some lovely blue glass heart buttons that I got when the LYS closed. Or maybe the white shell hearts… will see when the sweater is dry.
It’s official! I start the new job on Monday. Information Manager for the program. One of the (many) things I’ve been doing is writing our new maine.gov website… hoping it will be up and going by Jan 1, because the one we have is woefully out of date.
Thank you all for your thoughts. His mom and mine are still friends. As a parent, I can think of no worse thing.
These things seem rather trivial in comparison, but the next three phone calls I received were these:
- problems with my niece’s ears and discord in her parent’s marriage,
- another niece (14 and hanging with the ‘wrong’ crowd) ran away from home… they know where she is but didn’t for a day or so, and
- my intern is in the hospital… she had surgery for a badly burst appendix. It’s five days since the surgery and she is still there
Seems that was the end of suprises. For which I am glad. Hope your surprises are of the happy variety!
