As fantastic as my Friday night was, I stayed up too late to get up (four hours later) for a full day with my mom at Disneyland (getting in bed about midnight.) Sunday was quiet, restful puttering with the watering and laundry.
Monday I had jury duty. I was confident I would not be chosen. In 2009 I did a 99-day Criminal Grand Jury and one of the lawyers said that one benefit of that service was that no defense attorney would ever let us on a criminal jury.
He was wrong.
Jury selection was finished about 3:30 Monday and we spend the next 1.5 hours hearing testimony - complete with video - of a very violent arrest. Tuesday was more testimony. Yesterday was deliberation and we came to a verdict finally about 3:30. It was intense and exhausting.
Then today I got to school - after a three-day absence - to a day of lectures. Tomorrow will be the same. And then there was a one-hour meeting after school.
I could barely put one foot in front of the other to get into the house. I gave up trying to get anything done (not even dinner) and stretched out on the bed. Only to be roused up again by the dog wanting dinner, and then a lengthy visit outside to toilet.
And then I scrolled into this.
Spirit restored. I nearly peed myself. Had to watch it twice.
THEN a friend sent me to the original.
