Checklist for a cruddy day...

  • You go out to your car to go to work to find it's been egged over night
  • 22 month old eats leftover egg shell while you survey the damage
  • Use last $5 for car wash
  • Accidently open door (not thinking) while man sprays down car
  • Go home for lunch, find 3 spots on car where paint is damaged
  • Eat frozen burrito for lunch that comes back to haunt you later
  • Husband calls to say you are being subpoenaed to court
  • Husband re-reads letter to say no, it's just jury duty summons
  • Jury duty is in downtown Detroit
  • Sitter lined up to watch Peanut tomorrow calls to say they now can't

Yeah...that's it. I give up and I'm going home.

When I got home, I opened the summons and found this on the list of items not allowed in the Courthouse:

  • Weapons, laptops, cellphones, knives, knitting needles or crochet hooks

Yeah..I just can't win.

Some days are just not fun!

No fun. I got summoned for jury duty in downtown Detroit too- the knitting thing made me sad, but luckily when I had to call the night before I found out I didn't have to go after all. Maybe you'll luck out too.

Sorry to hear that you had such a crummy day. I hope that your weekend is better! Give peanut a hug for me!
