News at Home: The one with jury duty
This week was mostly uneventful. Which tells you that we really have gotten into a good rhythm. I’ve been at my job for 2 months now, which means Dante has been at daycare for 2 months. Hard to believe, time is just flying by.
The only real disruption to my normal week this week was jury duty on Thursday. I didn’t have to report until 12:30, but my boss told me to just take the day. (I’m still blown away by little things like that… teaching it would have been awful for me to take just a half day!). It was just city court, so had I served, it would have been a simple case like a city ordinance violation. But I sat around for a couple hours and then they released us. So Thursday was mostly me relaxing. I spent the morning with Dante and we went by the office for a bit. Then I took him to daycare, ran some errands, and then went to a coffee shop by the court house to sit and make some phone calls I needed to take care of. Then I went to the courthouse – read for a couple hours – and when I was released, I decided to go to half price books and read some more, until picking Dante up at his regular time. It was a super relaxing day.
And since I get paid for 8 hours from jury duty and had worked through 2 lunches that week, I still got off work on Friday at 3! Which meant I got to go to book club! So yeah, great easy work week.
Saturday I saw my doula for the first time since Dante was a couple weeks old. She needed to get some of the books I had borrowed to give to a client with a baby due beginning of March. It was great to see her and fun to show her how big Dante’s gotten. Then Kiko, Dante, and I ran some errands and went to IHOP for breakfast. Dante does so well at restaurants – he’s just such a good baby. Then we stopped by Franky’s and hung out with the family for a few hours.
Today I plan to clean (I always clean on Sundays), get groceries delivered and meal prep. My brother is also planning on coming over to help me with Adobe Illustrator – I need to get semi-proficient with it super fast for work. Oh – speaking of my brother – he started a new job this week… and got a job offer that he REALLY wanted. So he’s giving 2 weeks lol! Months of searching and BAM 3 job offers in 2 weeks. That’s how it always goes, I guess. I’m super happy for him, though.
I keep having a lot more going on than expected, so I keep not getting as much blogging done midweek as I would like. But I did manage to do some visiting and to write a few posts this week, so not too bad.
COYER is going super well for me, still. As of writing this, I’m almost done with a buddy read with Brandee (I’m hoping to finish it tonight… Saturday) to round out the Buddy Reading Read-a-thon. I feel like I’m doing better this COYER than I’ve done in a long time.
