I'm a newbie to the blogging world - this is my first blog and it's my first time really getting into other blogs. I'm quickly discovering that I'm not hip on all things blog. In fact, I'm very un-hip. I have no idea how to get fancy graphics or make my blog show up in searches. And, more embarrassingly, I don't check dates of previous blogs. In my attempt to connect with other LEO (law enforcement officer) wives, I have been actively searching out other blogs to follow. Whenever I find a blog and I enjoy the post, I love to leave a comment. After all, who doesn't like to have comments on their blog? Well, I was leaving a few comments yesterday here and there on some blogs I was enjoying... Only to find out I was commenting on stories that were blogged in 2009!...... 2009!! Years ago! Yep, I'm that girl. (: But seriously, why can't I find any other police wife blogs? To steal from Paula Cole - Where have all the Cowboys (err, Police Wives) gone?! I'm pretty sure Officer would hang his head at that reference. (:
Officer is going to have his police training in full force this weekend while we.... dog sit. Ha, not as many thrills as catching bad guys, but who doesn't get excited to scoop a little poop? Which leads me to my tangent about how I want him to be on the K9 squad of the force. Not that he can specialize in anything for a few years, but when he can I'd love that - of course, he has other plans (SWAT, Gangs, something dangerous and scary). Do you ever try and help your husband define his career to what you think would be cool? Like I mentioned in an earlier post, I'm an accountant and I need some thrills in my spreadsheet-and-numbers life. I have to live vicariously through him and because of that, I feel like I have the right to steer his path. Well, perhaps not. But, I'm his wife so I have the right to steer his path...? I'll just keep dreaming.
Did I mention the dog we're watching is 14 years old?
