back on track.. [Apr. 11th, 2011|07:33 am]
[Current Mood |determineddetermined]

day 2 was better. Laundry done. I forgot about a get together with other wives, thankfully I got a reminder email. I was a little late getting there but that's okay. I had a great time hanging out and talking.

Though coming home hungry and trying to figure out what to make for dinner was frustrating. What can you make for one person? You can only have mac n cheese and ramen noodles so many times. Besides, he's the chef. He's the one that come up with ideas for dinner and knows how to prepare them. I always eat better when he's here. It'll take me a while to adjust to the food situation. But I have some ideas for menus. :)

This week is going to be busy with meetings and it's time to get moving.

Writer's Block: All About My Mother [May. 10th, 2009|10:01 pm]
[Tags|, ]

Who is your favorite mother (the character, not the actress) from television or the movies?

Off the top f my head I'd have to say Chicha, Pacha's Wife from "Emperor's New Groove". If you've seen the movie you'll understand. If not then it's hard to explain.

Howard Stern Exposes Why So Many People Support Obama [Oct. 15th, 2008|02:07 pm]

Normally I don't post political stuff, I think everyone's entitled to their opinions and beliefs. And Politics seems to bring out the worst arguments. But this is too good not to share or, too scary not to share.

Play the audio. You won't believe it. On second thought, yes you will. Scary.

Some people are sooo stupid.

I think the Fates are toying with me... [Jul. 12th, 2008|04:22 pm]
[Current Mood |determineddetermined]

So I showed up at 7:35 am to take the physical fitness test which started sharply at 8 am. At about 8:10 they gathered us all together and told us that there is no longer accepting recruits for the academy. Thursday night the city council decided that there was no money for new recruits. So no January course. That means I paid $400 to come out and test for something that no longer exists. They told us that we could take the physical so that we could see where we were at but it wouldn't count toward future hiring. Needless to say I didn't take it. I saw no reason to kill myself over something that wasn't gonna count.

The written however would still be given because the scores are good for 18 months. They said that the earliest there would be a class would be september 09. and that was at the earliest, no guarantees.

I meet 3 other women there and we all agreed that we were hungry and should go out for breakfast before the written exam. We drove to Denny's and had a nice discussion about how stupid the whole thing was and one of the women's husband joined us for breakfast. He told us about an academy on the northside of El Paso that you had to pay to go to but trained you as a certified peace officer. Complete with the endorsement for the state exam. After that you go to one of the small towns outside of El Paso (he said 3 of them but I can't remember what they were) and work for them for 6 months then transfer into El Paso. El Paso accepts Lateral transfers more often than they do regular recruits. So the four of us really liked that idea. from start to finish it would be quicker than waiting for El Paso to start hiring again. I exchanged information with them so that I could keep in touch and so we could possibly all so through that academy together.

I want to thank everyone who has been wishing me good luck and support in this endeavor. This is only a detour and It will only slow me down not stop me.

However, since I paid for a $400 plane ticket to come down here and there is no academy class we will be contacting the city and the police department for reimbursement cuz that just pisses me off.

Just waiting............ [Jul. 11th, 2008|10:32 pm]

I'm sitting on the couch in my father-in-law's house watching the season premiere of Stargate Atlantis. My stomach is antsy and hungry. I go to bed as soon as it's over. Tomorrow I wake up and take the physical fitness test for the police department followed by the written. I'm pretty nervous and anxious. Not to mention terrified. Well, that's all I got for now.

I'm bad at updating [Jun. 15th, 2008|12:50 am]
[Current Mood |tiredtired]

Let's see............. The move went good. Still have to unpack a few boxes but we'll see if that gets done before we move again. We received our next orders so we know where we are going next. I've applied for the police academy there but they haven't gotten back to me yet. They just got my application this past week so probably haven't had too much time to look over it.

There's a written exam and a physical fitness test to even be considered for the next step. I have to run 1.5 miles in 15 min 20 sec, do 18 push-ups in a minute, and 27 sit-ups in a min. I've been working on the run and I'm feeling pretty good about it. Not confident but good. I still want to improve my run. I've hit a bit of a snag though, I've hurt one of the tendons attached to my knee cap. Can't remember what it's called but it's swelling. I'm gonna take a week off of running to give it a chance to heal. Just walking and low-impact. The push-ups I'm a bit worried about. Not too good at those but I'm working on it. Sit-ups I've got in the bag. Looking forward to finally being a cop. I've waited a long time for this. :)

Anyways, I've been so focused on the police academy I haven't spent much time online keeping up with all of my online friends. I'm hoping to get back on the boards but it's gonna be a slow process. I've been away for so long that there's a lot to catch up.

I do miss hanging out with everybody. :(

feels good to sit and relax.  I hate not being able to get on my message boards and journals.  Missed all of you guys.

Go me [Sep. 7th, 2007|07:50 pm]
[Current Location |proud moment ;)]

Low and behold today was an accomplished day.  I had my teeth cleaned today.  My teeth are the complete opposite of what they were 2 years ago.  I have to congradulate myself on it.  I have a few possible cavities.  Meaning they are there but not enough of it to fix.  The possible cavities are getting smaller because of they way that I take care of my teeth.  I floss every night, brush 2 times a day and use Act restoring mouthwash before I go to bed.  even the doc said my teeth were perfect.  yup, that's right.  I'm bragging. :)

The PX had the video camera in and I bought it. :D I played with it for an hour today, it's cool.  Though the battery life is only 1 1/2 hours.  So, I'm gonna need to buy a another battery this week or next.  Definitely by the end of the week.

Had our first soccer practice for the fall today.  Didn't do much but I did get a little tired.  Shows that I need to get back into shape.  I've been working out a bit the past week so I'm getting there.  Just not there yet.  But I will. :)

Got to go tanning, trying to have a little color before my hubby gets back.
