Spent a long hard morning sitting on wooden benches while they picked jurors and I was NOT one! Now I have time to get my medical release from Jury duty as that is too hard for me physically. So I say thank you Lord for no one wanting me….hahahahah.
And they called and want to have son come out and work next week instead of this week, so the week has slowed down some in that respect, which is nice.
All that is left is the hearing on Friday and my lawyer just called to see if I had gotten my coverage back and I said not for July. So, that will be the last big thing this week…I hope.
But the headband is still on…:) and I need to lay here and relax some.
Wow, woke up with horrible muscle spasms in my legs. This is when I sound like one of the horror movies as I try to walk with crutches and one leg just won’t work. Son says I do the “thump” ”thump” “drag” sound. Once the spasms let go, I can laugh about it. But until then, is no laughing matter.
I kept dreaming a dream of jury duty, Casey Anthony and other trials. Now, I know this trial is a civil case and not a long trial but it sure was a crazy dream time. I was probably as shocked as everyone else with the Casey Anthony outcome but trials of late have me worried about our jury system. I see Juries trying to “make a statement” when their job is to uphold the law and carry out the judicial system. I see Juries who convict because they didn’t like the person got off the time before, even if there were not enough evidence. So, my faith in this system is really low. Perhaps this is why I feel obligated to go down there for jury selection.
Is nice to wake up with a cool house. We got our electric bill from the month of the 5000 BTU air condition and swamp cooler running. It was 250.00. I was not surprised for that little AC would not even shut the compressor off as it could not cool the house. Next month will tell us a lot. But meanwhile, I am where my eyes are clear and I can breathe without struggling so.
I hear Jack over there snoring. He raised his head up once as if to say “Mom, what are you doing” as I thump thump dragged around the room and out into the LR and Kitchen. Waking to such severe pain on the inner thighs is like waking up in hell and you can’t get your brain cleared enough to think. Thank God, I have reflex that helps propel me from the bed and onto the crutches for that is all that will get that part of my spine to release the pressure on those nerves.
I love the quietness of this house. I have learned through the years that there are certain things that accelerate my pain and noise is one. Bright lights and crowds are others. So, the peace in this house as we get it set up is so nice. I actually sat in the recliner in the living room last nite and son and I just talked. A long time coming that was. It is a joy to use all of the house for the first time in years.
And the red headband is still on and I am still in fight to survive mode. Is how I keep rocking and rolling. How I keep from giving up and just quitting. I am too stubborn to just lay back and do nothing. And besides that…there are dreams to work. So, back down for hopefully a couple more hours sleep before that trip to the courthouse and that ride on that magical metal lift up those courthouse steps as they sure are a climb. I know..I did it yesterday..probably the reason for the spasms tonite. And as son says, my guardian angel was right behind me to keep me from falling up or down those brick steps. And they were not even yellow bricks like in the Oz.
