Jury Duty & Other Things

First, I want to start out with sympathy to all the families that were unjustly hurt by yesterday's shooting. The congresswoman is doing much better today, thank goodness. And I am sick and tired of the 'CIA terminology' that the gunman was a loner. There is no such thing in today's society, so quit printing that BS. We don't buy it anymore, we are not the sheep you think we are. And that is all I'm saying on that subject.

Next, we are looking for a new house. We have found an area we like here in the springs. The houses are bigger and the lots make it where your neighbor is a little further away. But, the prices are higher then we want to pay. So, we will keep looking in that area till a home comes up with a better price. We would just like to have more room and be in a neighborhood that's more our speed.

It is snowing here today and the boys are really bummed. They look like they just lost their best friend and I feel that to them, the sun is their best friend :)

My husband has jury duty this Tuesday, his stress level has hit an all time high because of it. He has had 2 hypoglycemic attacks since Thursday. He almost passed out at the store on Thursday, I was able to get him to the car and have him eat some cheese and crackers with a soda. He needs to eat at least 5 times a day (small snacks in between meals) to keep from an attack. You can't do that in a courthouse. I don't know what I'm going to do. I will be going with him, I'll be taking a banana with me to give to him at 10:00 (I hope they let me bring it in), then we'll get lunch and I'll buy something to give to him at 2:00. I am hoping with all my heart that we will not be there that long but you never know. My stress is raising and I'm trying to keep it in check so I can help him. Today, I'm having him rest. Thank goodness there is football on :)

So, thats it for my little corner of the world. Hope all of you are doing well

Hello, Sweet Girl! I'm so sorry I haven't been in touch--it has been a very busy season for me, especially since I started watching my three-year old great niece and niece! There isn't enough time in the day to do everything I must do.

I'm envious of your snow. Tch tch tch--your boys would not like it here in Oregon, where the sun is so scarce during the winter...though just now, as I'm typing this, I see sunlight! lol

Thank you so much for your comment about my artwork--to be someone's favorite artist is inspiring! ((hugs))

You are a darling, you know. ((hugs))

Beth, never worry, I always know that you are a busy bee and I feel honored when you squeeze in a few minutes to say hello :)

You are welcome, I love your work :)

I had always heard Oregon & Washington get a lot of rain. But, thats why its soooo green & beautiful there!

I am sending a hug back at ya :)

Did your husband try to get a letter from his doctor? He should be excused from Jury duty for medical reasons. I am always excused after my audiologist wrote that I have a hearing loss.

Personally, I don't think jury duty is necessarily for everyone. I someone doesn't want to be a part of it--no matter what the reason--they should be excused.

Darlene, No, he doesn't have a letter from a doctor. He's had this since he was a child but I'm thinking we should go to our doc & get one.

Lee, you're right not everyone can do jury duty. I think they should make it a job, have professional jurors and pay them enough where they can't be bribe. But, that's a thought I have taken all the way down the road. Most likley there are drawbacks to that.
