Mommy Brain Doozie

Like a bolt of lightning, a thought entered my head a few minutes ago that I had never turned in my "please excuse me from jury duty" letter. I frantically searched for the jury duty notice, found it in 30 seconds (WOW!!!) and noticed that I was supposed to report this morning. Good grief. So, I wrote my note begging off jury duty for the next 18, er, 17 years (just changed the date and added two more kids from last year's summons). I'll mail it in tomorrow. I guess they won't charge me for being in contempt of court quite yet. OY! Glad the thought entered my head just now. Todah, Hashem!

Like all good parents, we do have a back-up plan: If she can't be excused, Kerith will bring all four children when she reports, and make it a learning experience. Although I'm not quite sure whether most of the learning will be done by our children or for the Multnomah county court personnel....

LOL!!! I was summoned last year and when I got there, realized the judge was someone I used to baby sit for, they quickly excused me. I may not be so lucky next time...But I think I'll steal Hoosbin's idea and just take all four kids to the courthouse w/ me! =)
