Getting ready for a long day in a packed courtroom on Monday

My particular job is deemed essential because it is emergency in nature. So it will be me, a judge, a clerk, and 50-75 people in court on Monday in a room that has an occupancy limit of 80.
Why are there 50-75 people in there? Surely they're not all necessary?

They are probably the plaintiffs, for differing cases? Still, one would hope they could be let in only as their case comes up.

Cydric the cat has finished his antibiotics, I'm now having to syringe the food. He's getting more used to it, and likes being swaddled in a towel.

Right now I'm taking a break from cat nursing for a couple of hours. He'll need to be fed again soon. Cyd's doing a little better than expected, quite honestly I thought he'd have crossed the rainbow bridge by now. Keeping everything crossed that he'll recover.

I've run out of hot chocolate! Could do with one right now.

Best of luck with Cyd! Cat nursing is exhausting ... done it enough myself ... if I could I'd send you an envelope of chocolate!

There are 26 emergency domestic violence cases on the docket Monday. I represent 14 of them. That means, at minimum, there will be 52 parties (plaintiffs and defendants) plus any other attorneys, the judge, the clerks, the bailiffs and all the witnesses. And there is nowhere else to put them but the courtroom. The building is old and has narrow hallways. It would be even more dangerous out there.

Looking into getting an Audible subscription. Normally I like to listen to podcasts when doing things as cleaning or when I'm creative. But at the moment I can't find anything I can binge listen to that I'm in the mood for.

I already have more free time, I'm working less due to the virus. And I expect that we have to close our store for a while in the near future due to government regulations. So I have a lot of free time on my hands.

The biggest question is if I want to start my free month trial now or if I want to wait until a big shutdown. I'm tempted to get it now, although I think it would be wise to wait until a proper shutdown.

You can also just buy a book without a membership. And then wait for a free trial period. I tend to take a 2-3 month free trial, and buy a ton of books during that time. (Members pay 30% less than listed prices.) Then I cancel and wait 2 years before doing another membership.

I signed up for the trial. I got Robert R. McCammon's Usher's Passing and two Audible Exclusives.

I was tempted to go for Stephen King's The Stand, since it's over 40 hours long and I've been thinking of rereading it for a while now. But with everything that's going on I don't think I would enjoy it very much.

Planning ways to spend the $1200 stimulus check I'll be getting soon. While the article only mentions 4 ways to spend the money, there's actually 5 ways to do so and I'm sure y'all will agree with #5


4 Smart Ways to Spend Your Stimulus Check

Quote:
You can use the money to help your family and your community.

A $2.2 trillion coronavirus stimulus/relief package was signed into law by President Trump last Friday, which, among other benefits, puts money in the pockets of most Americans.

1. Pay down credit card debt
2. Set up an emergency fund
3. Invest it
4. Help the community

Doing file notes and cleaning up my cases from court this morning. The court is TRYING to keep people six feet apart by taping big Xs on the seats where folks should sit. Getting people to abide by it was like herding cats for the poor bailiffs this morning.

Luckily, only 11 cases today, so the number in the court was under 30.
