Hey there, Freedom Kickers! It’s been an interesting last week for me—I was serving on a jury! It did leave me a bit out of the loop re: anything else going on in the world because I also had to try to fit in work in the evenings and had various social plans, BUT we have delivered our verdict and I am back to real life.

Also, I feel like I have become an expert in medical malpractice and spinal surgery. Have any of you ever served on a jury? Did you find it interesting? Parts of this were definitely kind of boring but overall I sort of...enjoyed it?

But you didn’t come here for my musings on the justice system. To the soccer!

That’s all from me, folks. I’m off to go to my actual job instead of the court house. Have a great day!
