I hope you are having a wonderful day! I'm done with fruit and veggies and now I'm giving my attention to a nearly destroyed toy! It will never be said that I do not complete a job!heheheheheh
Mom doesn't have to go to court today but she spent the entire day there yesterday. She did not have enough time to get any sleep before work so she took last night off. Her company pays for jury duty anyway.
It was another really boring time there. Mom finished her book in 2 hours so every time they said they were just waiting for the court to call, mom went and checked out the courthouse. Lots of interesting stuff there. They have a big electronic board with all the cases for the day. This court is the county court so it does all kinds of cases. Divorce, estates, traffic, civil and criminal. So far mom figures every case she has been assigned to was criminal. She knows this because of the 4 panels she has been on, they all took plea deals! Perhaps she just has that magic touch and they put her on the panel because they want the defendant to take the plea deal! She still has Friday and all of next week to serve. The hard part is that since mom works nights she has to get up early to see if they need her the next day. If they do and it's at 8am, she has to go to work half an hour early in order to get there on time.
Still lots of excitement out on the streets in front of the courthouse. The Tacoma Mission is just down the street so a lot of the people who spend their nights there spend their days down by the courthouse. Mom never ignores anyone even if some of them do look a bit scary. She shared her Mentos with a guy on the street and he told mom she was the nicest person he had talked to all week. That is very sad.
When mom walked up to the McDonalds to wait for dad to pick her up a lady by the bus stop said hello so mom turned around and said hello back to her. Mom then realized that the lady was not saying hello to mom, she was talking to a bush. Mom went in to McDonalds and got her self a big diet coke and when she came back out to the parking lot to wait for dad, the lady was standing in the middle of one of the driveways and yelling at people to go on ahead. Well, no one could go since she was in the middle of the driveway and eventually she threw her hands up and walked back to the bus stop to continue her conversation with the bush. Mom said a prayer for the lady and hoped that she would be alright.
I'm sorry to hear what your mom had to go through to get off jury duty for the wedding. They must know that the wedding is much more important! It's awful that she had to be in the same room with the scumbag too! That's just not right. It should have just been the judge!!
Enjoy the day and I hope it's a fabulous one!!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar
