I'm in the phase of my life where young'uns have taken to calling me ma'am. It's strange. I don't feel any older than when I was in college. Yeah, I know, I look older, but not much. :) But then I look at my 15 yr old step-son and I remember how I saw people my age when I was his age. 30 was o.l.d. Yes, I know, I'm 31. Still.

I've been called to jury duty. I have to show up at the courthouse next Monday morning. I'm not sure if I'm looking forward to it or not. Kind of exciting. I don't want to be assigned to a trial that lasts more a few days though.

I read a blog (can't remember which one) where the author talked about uncluttering her life by first uncluttering her surroundings. That's exactly what I need to do!

Shelly -- I think that most of us has some clutter we need to get rid of, in our surroundings, our lives and even some people. You'll be fine I'm sure.

I hope you aren't assigned to a murder trial like I almost was!!

Yes, unclutteryour life! You will feel better, plus, you may find my books! I'm not buying that "someone stole them off the dining room table" story. *wink*

good luck on the jury duty!

i've been getting that ma'am thing and it sortof annoys me - but then the days when i get on the bus and the teens are just loud and obxious - is when i really feel it!

definitely unclutter! i'm so affected by my surroundings. if i have to many visual distractions going on - i can't think straight and am stressed.
