July Currently

I can't believe it's Currently time again! I love Farley's Currently linky, but it just reminds me of how fast time flies. Although this is a pleasant first of the month, it is also my first full week of vacation. And of course I use the term vacation very lightly, because I am still working this month; August will be my real vacation. 

I think things are pretty self-explanatory this time around. I had jury duty for the very first time today - I am 29 years old and this was my first one! Luckily I was at one of the smaller courts in my area and we were all dismissed by 10:15. Yay! I am also very lucky that my amazing summer boss told me to enjoy the rest of my day when I called to tell her I was on my way to work! :o)

As for Toby Keith, one of our local country stations posted a link on Facebook yesterday to a 4th of July ticket sale. It said that lawn tickets were on sale, but when I tried to Toby Keith link I actually found some mid-pavillion tickets for $20 each! So exciting!! 

Finally, I claimed an old, rather disheveled looking bookcase from school a couple of weeks ago. I was planning on purchasing one, so when I was this one looking for a new home I simply couldn't resist. Aside from being in dire need of a new paint job, it is in great shape. I also plan to bring home an old rocking chair from my gram's house that I will paint to match my bookcase. 

Thanks for reading! :o)

Congratulations on the tickets and jury duty! Win Win! I got jury duty one month after turning 18. How does that happen?!!!

I've never served on a jury, but I did recently get a questionnaire about my availability for such things. I think it's because I had to change my address on my license, darn it! I said June was my best month, and now that it's over, I hope I don't have to worry about it for another year! :)

I have jury duty next week and I'm hoping I can get dismissed early too!! I am 27 and this is my THIRD time for jury duty, while most of my friends have never been picked!

Just saw Toby last month! It was a great show! I saw him once before a few years ago. Enjoy your holiday weekend!
