Jury Duty

It's funny, but in the last ten years we've lived in Colorado, this is the third time I've been summoned for Jury Duty. Tia hasn't been called once. So I'm off tomorrow to Kiowa to take my place and see if I get picked to serve. I got a notice a few weeks ago, called today, and my lucky number came up.

So I'll be heading down there tomorrow early to see if I'm chosen to serve. It's annoying and it means that I've got to jam a bit tonight to ensure that I get enough work done. Tia says she wishes she had it because she would get out of work, but not me. I need to still get things done so that the site runs without me.

I'm torn because I need to get work done, and this impacts the family time as well as Steve time. However it's a citizen's duty, and I wouldn't think of trying to get out of it. I talked to the kids a bit about it and tried to explain why I'm going and what I have to do.

Hopefully it means something to them.
