The first week back in the office after the holidays was not typical this year. Our office was open Monday when most of our customers were not in the office which made for a nice catch up day. Unfortunately, I came back from vacation with a bad cold so wasn’t as productive as usual and then threw in the towel Tuesday so I could recover.
Wednesday was jury duty day. Usually, I am not called for a jury so just spend 4-6 hours enjoying the free WiFi and catching up on reading or correspondence. This time I was sworn in on a jury that is still in progress. I’ll write more about this in the future but it’s been interesting.
