I got that survey in an email (thanks Auntie Lu) and I thought it would make a good post. Who am I kidding, it was an easy post for someone as lazy as me. Today I am going to attempt something huge. I am going to attempt to go to the grocery store, alone, for the first time in months. I kid you not, it will wipe me out for hours. My main goal is: dontpukedontpukedontpukedontpuke.
So, we find out if Perry is a boy or girl pretty soon. Let me tell you the 5 reasons I know Perry will be a girl. 1) We have only agreed on a boy's name. 2) I have the cutest scheme picked out for the room--if it is a boy, no idea if it is a girl. 3) I have a lot of boy's clothes I have bought over the years---not even a third as many girls clothes, (out of 3 boxes of baby clothes I have collected over the years.) 4) Everyone thinks this will be a boy. 5) Only a daughter could cause her mother this much strife. Who wants to take bets? Anyone? Bottom line, of course we all want healthy and safe above all.
So Chris was off work on vacation for a month, lucky him spent half the time emptying my barf bucket. He went back to work today at his brand new office, where he was transferred. It is funny because as soon as he checks in, he is putting in paperwork to transfer out. We are going to try and get Donner Pass in Lake Tahoe. He is #1 on the waiting list with 4 officers leaving, so far, so we've got a good chance. Most people don't want it because it is a weigh station but Chris was a heavy equipment mechanic so he would really excel. Also cost of living is low, pay is the same. We could finally afford to buy a home and God willing I could be a stay at home Mom. This wouldn't actually occur until October though. Speaking of Chris, he got a pin that he has to wear on his uniform. It is to commend the fact that he got more felony arrests than any other CHP officer in the whole division!!!! That is like 5 or more offices with hundreds of officers! I am so proud. On a crappy note, he has to have surgery on a tendon in his wrist and will be off for 4-6 weeks. OK enough bragging-by-association.
OK well, that is all for now, wish me luck on my grocery trip! Oh, and Happy April Fool's day!

So, let me get this straight... He gets EPR'd for arresting too many people, then they give him a pin for it!?!? Only in government work... hypocrasy at it's finest.

"Crisp" is British for chips -- because "chips" there are French Fries.

Okay, so I told myself I wasn't going to post anymore comments on blogs tonight but I found yours and just couldn't help myself!!! (as I sit here dreading the next 911 call) I was reading some of your prior post and I think your agency may actually be worse than mine. (A feat before today I thought impossible!) Anyway, I was reading your list and remembered that we had a dispatcher who went AWOL (due to a nervous breakdown) a few years back who actually gave her child "Danger" as a middle name!! Anyway, sorry for the post in your comment section but if you get bored you should visit this site (also a dispatcher, and one of my co-workers) www.coley-cole.blogspot.com God bless and congrats on the pregnancy!!!!
