Last few weeks have been really challenging. Its taken me awhile to get used to my new schedule which is always changing from week to week. Every other week switches from nights to day work and so my body has been trying to adjust to sleep schedules. The practical hands on part of the job has been really exciting to learn. There is SO SO SO much to still learn and I find myself feeling frustrated and inadequate when I mess things up. There's a reason police do things a certain way and most of the time its because it will keep them alive and give them one up on the bad guy. I'm finding that this job is very consuming and its all I really have time and energy to do at this point. Not only am I trying to get used to my schedule but also Brian's because he works almost opposite of everything I do. So we see each other whenever time permits...(feeling sorry for myself moment...it will be four days before our schedules clear up again and we can hangout...boo haha) I do not know how military wives handle not seeing their significant others for months on end...I can't imagine (you girls have got some strength!!)
Its been so much fun when I have had the chance to hangout with my family! Last weekend we had our Mom and Craig, Brian and me, and Cindy and Tim over for dinner! My little sister is dating this outstanding young man who is absolutely hilarious and charming and they match together perfectly. It is so much fun to have these boys around. And its such a new thing for Cindy and I to be experiencing...we're like wow these guys actually like being around us and they're fun to be with! Anyways its so special for my sis and I to be going through this together and when we see each other we're like giddy little school girls as we share our stories about our boys =) So life is good...
What Brian and I have been up too...
A few weeks ago he helped me buy my new car cause I was CLUELESS about everything!
He fixed my old car so it would work for Cindy
I was able to take off one day so we could go to the beach! We went to Bethany and Rehobeth and relaxed, swam, played football, games, water/sand fights, ate seafood and absolutely enjoyed the entire day!
We were like kids again (a nice break form the police setting) and built a sand castle...don't mind my ocean drowned hair
PS Hurricane Danny was off the coast and the waves were so intense and I was nervous to go in...I've been rescued once already by OC life guards in the past (haha!)...but Brian really wanted to go in so I reluctantly joined, fortunately he kept me alive and from being washed away...thanks!
