Jury Duty

I got my first ever jury duty summons yesterday. I'm kind of sad to have to try to get out of it. My employer would be lost with out me for a week (his words not mine) and I can't afford to only get paid $10 a day for a week. It's too bad they didn't request me for the week my office is closed anyways. I think it would be interesting to serve on a jury. I also truly believe that being able to have a trial by jury is one of the most important rights this country offers and if everyone always found ways out of it then we wouldn't have that right.

Funny Stuff

Me: We could see you Tuesday, the 24th at 11:30

Patient: Tuesday, the 24th. What day is that?

Me: Tuesday, the 24th.

Patient: yes, but what day is that?

Me: The day of the week is Tuesday. The date is the 24th.

Patient: oh, so it's a Tuesday?

Me: Yes, Tuesday the 24th is a Tuesday.

I'm So Over This Buying A House Thing

So we found out Thursday night that the house was appraised at about $15,000 less than we offered on it which means we can't get approved for a loan for the full amount. Now we have to go back and renegotiate the price with the builder and there is a chance the whole thing could fall through. So lame! Supposedly we should know more about what's going on by Tuesday.

The house is supposed to be done in a few weeks but given all the hullabaloo it looks like we won't be closing until well into October now (if the whole thing doesn't fall through that is). Oh the drama of it all. I'm so over it and can't wait to not be in limbo anymore whatever the outcome may be.
