So yesterday we got a bundle of mail, Saturday’s through Thursday’s. In that mail was a summons to appear for jury duty… right smack in the middle of one of the fall retreats!
I’ve sent a letter along with my “form” begging to be let off. It’s not like I can cancel the retreat now, it’s past the cancellation date. I included with my letter a copy of the hotel contract and their cancellation policy. Surely the court won’t make me lose several thousand dollars already spent, and spoil the retreat for the 24 ladies who are signed up for it… watch for updates and hope they are good ones.Today I went to see the vampires again. This time it was fasting, which meant no food or more importantly no coffee. And because I am such a hard stick, I knew to drink lots of water and to wait until later in the morning to go get it done. I didn’t realize how long I had waited until my stomach growled at the receptionist when I checked in…almost 1:00. The nurse still had a hard time finding a good vein, but she finally did. Now I hope it doesn’t bruise, I don’t want a purple hand for the wedding.
