The Verdict

This week has been unlike any other for me. Truthfully, I'm glad it's almost over because I've never needed down time so badly. My jury duty started Monday and ended last night. I had no idea it would be so exhausting. Even after leaving the courthouse each day, I felt the weight of the situation. I woke up most nights with bad dreams about the trial. I had no idea it would be so haunting. 


It's over now, but it's still all I can think about. I'm sure that will pass with a little down time, but for now, I'm shaken and exhausted.

So that's where you've been... I was wondering.

Yes, locked in a beige room on the second floor of the Caddo Courthouse. BUT ... I will see you tonight, which should be a treat!

Kate said...

I'm hoping you got the memo about the locale change...

(And FYI my word verification word was Tramp)

Stephanie Netherton said...

yes, I got the memo.

Tramp? Really?

Hey Stephanie,

Just wanted to tell you that I loved your SB article on "Outstanding Singles!" Great job! I bought one for Neil's mom b/c she loves Joan Grafton!

I'm glad you liked it, Lindsey. Joan is such a great person! I should probably see her tonight at bunco!
