I was going to post this morning and didn't have time.

All week, I have been oncall for jury duty. That means I had to call in every evening and listen to the message to see if I needed to report the next day. I did this faithfully from Sunday on.

Until last night. I was absorbed in finishing the rough draft of my Invisible Man story, and the whole idea somehow slipped my mind.

Also, I've been waking up at the ridiculous hour of 5:30 am, most of the week.

So of course, on the one day that I'd forgotten to call, I sleep through my alarm and don't get up till 7:30am. And realize that I didn't call.

I dial frantically, log in, listen: "You should have reported for duty at 7:30am June 10th...you will need to speak with a supervisor to reschedule...."

Cue weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth.

I think it's neat that we get to be on juries; that part of our payment for having a fair trial (should we someday need one) is to give that right to others. Also, I detest failing on my responsibilities.

Nice way to start my morning.

However, I called their office right after 8am, and the supervisor helped me reschedule for the week after next. This could be a blessing in disguise--if I had gone in today, and gotten stuck in a trial, I might have ended up being in court most of next week instead of being with my family while they are here.

So I'm trying to see it in a positive light!

Awww, hon. Yes I think it probably is a blessing in disguise. You have to not be so hard on yourself
