The last four years for me has been about staying at home with my kids, going to school which required me to write tons of papers, and at the same time I was dealing with my husband being in Iraq for almost 18 months.
Yet, all of that will change tomorrow when I go back to work full time for the first time in four years. I will be doing a job that requires me to use my degree which makes me happy and at the same time I will be sad to have to use it because it means that people are being treated unfairly. It also means that I will have to work longer hours, be on call and might miss some important events with my kids. I know I am already going to miss Kylie's 1st day of 1st grade which makes me sad because I have always taken the Kylie to school and this year I will miss doing it. The good thing though is that Matt will get to experience the first day of school for himself.
As for Matt we are still waiting to hear from the Dallas Pd. I know there re so many people that are trying to get hired by them but at the same time I wish they would hurry up. Matt and I feel that he will get the job but what month he starts is till up in the air. We were hoping for August but it does not look like it will happen. We are still hopeful for September which would be fine. Please keep my family in your thoughts has we enter this trying time.
