Dear Juror #04241 (that's me...my own unique numeral. I feel oh so special.),
Your request to be excused from jury service has been approved. Please do not bring you or your grimy little hooligans into our courtroom. Congratulations, you have just figured out a great way to get out of your civic duties.
Turns out that being the sole source of nourishment for a wee someone has benefits other that brain development and bonding experience. Though I can't help but think that me getting out of jury duty had something to do with the mastitis episode. It's a conspiracy theory. The government's way of punishing me for skipping out on them.
This electric, hurt-your-eyes shade of blue would happen to be the new coat of paint on our neighbor's house. Let's just say that Emma running out to greet the UPS man in only her underwear is no longer the topic of choice among our neighborhood gossipers. On the bright blue side of things, it does make a cool backdrop for pictures...and it makes me feel like we're livin' the high life in Key West.Finally, I have to give a shout out to the talented Nancy Masterson from our church. She made this super cool blanket for Nathan that showcases all of the colleges that we have been a part of over the past 10 years or so. How cool is this? I just love it! (The picture below would be so much cooler if I had realized that the blanket was upside down.)
