It has been far too long since I sat down to write here. I’ve been in front of computer screens a lot lately, typing away, but that’s been for work, which has been my main focus the last few months.Three weeks of training at the CHP academy for Mod A, completed. Now on the third cycle on my training at the office and ahead of me, two weeks back at the academy for Mod B and months of radio training to reach the goal of passing probation.
Calvin turned 5, Mia turned 3, Halloween and Thanksgiving came and went. These kids are growing like weeds, every RDO I look at them both and I am astounded by their size, their abilities, their intelligence and their fun, beautiful personalities.
I wish I had more to say right now, but truly work and home life is all consuming.
Goodness, it’s really been quite a while since I sat down to write anything. I’m not sure why I haven’t spent time doing this, but I’m here now… waiting for the words to come. This feels more difficult than usual. I can’t even recall where I last left off.
I guess I could fill you in on the year so far.
January was uneventful, as the start of the year always seems to be. It was an unusually cold winter this year with tons or rain. The kids had many opportunities to jump in puddles and get extra muddy!
February, I applied for my US citizenship. Not something I planned on doing, but now is as good a time as ever to do it. Things are already moving quickly with the application and I have my biometrics appointment this coming week. Calvin started karate and absolutely loves it! He’s made some friends and it’s giving him extra lessons in focus and discipline, much needed for crazy four year olds!
And here we are at March. March so far has been busy! Calvin is registered for TK (Transitional Kindergarten) for this coming school year, Mia has had her language evaluation for her speech delay, Curtis has been moved to a new station and I am in the hiring process for CHP.
Oh… and on Tuesday I’ll be 30… I mean 21, with 9 years experience!
