Jury Duty

January 13, 2009

Today is my day off, and I spent a portion of it going to jury duty. This is my first time that I couldn’t claim an exemption from going, and although I know I could have just skipped it and probably wouldn’t have ever seen the consequences, that’s just not the type of person I am. Also, I thought it would be an experience. My father-in-law sat on a murder trial once – not that I would want to have THAT kind of experience, but still. Anyway, I was very impressed with the whole process. I arrived and sat in a comfortable assembly hall and read for a short while before they began announcing the panels. I was in the…

Twilight on Opening Night

November 22, 2008

I have to say that my husband is awesome for taking me to see Twilight on opening night, and he only complained a little bit. I did very much enjoy the movie, although I will say it was a little cheesy. I don’t think the hundreds of teenage girls who were there with us thought that, though. They would burst out in squeals at the tiniest thing. David would rub his head, shift in his seat, and say to me, “I just don’t get it! Nothing happened, why are they cheering?” And I would say to him things like, “It’s because Edward is wearing sunglasses now.” Admittedly, it wasn’t the circumstances I prefer to see a movie in either, but…

Sleeping Habits

November 2, 2008

You never really know much about how you sleep until you start sleeping in the same bed with someone for a period of time. Take me, for example. I’ve never been told that I snore, talk in my sleep, sleepwalk, or anything like that. I assumed that I curl up on my side, eventually roll over onto my back, and stay like that without moving for pretty much the whole night. I go to sleep much earlier than David does, so he tucks me in at night and then comes to join me a few hours later. Most of the time I don’t even notice when he gets in bed. But the other night I vaguely remember rousing to him shaking me and…

Friday Night

September 19, 2008

This time last week I was sitting at a table in Methodist’s cafeteria, talking to some co-workers and getting ready to head to my hospital room for bed. A hurricane was making a straight shot for us. At this time in two weeks I will be married, soon to head to a hotel room at the airport, and then to Kauai from there (with stops in Dallas, LA, and Honolulu). But tonight I am lounging on the couch, exhausted after a busy day at work and hours of traffic, wasting the time I should be wedding planning on and getting ready to head to my twin bed in my parents’ house to cuddle up with my dog, preparing for…

I Don’t Like Ike

September 11, 2008

Not only did I have to cancel my bridal shower for Saturday morning along with other appointments regarding wedding planning (which is kind of a big deal when it’s only three weeks away and I work next weekend), but I will also probably be stuck up at work on Friday night by the looks of it. I’m on the “ride out” team at work, so I have to pack some clothes when I come tomorrow and, if things are bad outside, stay here until someone can come relieve me. The ONLY good thing about this is that I will get paid overtime. Totally NOT WORTH IT. Here’s hoping that Ike leaves us alone.
