Squad car selfie. Working 12 hours of overtime on this lovely Sunday. Had a lovely breakfast with Trivialbob. Stopped a couple of cars for speeding, went to the local campground to make sure people knew storms are predicted tonight, and stopped to say hi to my Dad and brother.
I look forward to a night on the couch with Trivialbob and dogs X3 when I get home. Life is good. So blessed.
Asthma and running
So it’s allergy season. Last night at Crossfit there was A LOT of running. I hit my inhaler before class started. The first run was 400 meters. I ran 300 and started wheezing, finished the 400. Then we did burpee box jumps and toes to bar. The next run was 600 meters, then we did pistols and hand stand push ups. Then an 800 meter run followed by more burpee box jumps and toes to bar, then 600 meter run, pistols and hand stand push ups and a final 400 meter run. The later runs I was able to breathe easier.
I hated every minute of this work out. Why? Because of my asthma. I was surprised though that the running got easier as time went on. I am guessing I probably need to do some cardio to warm up before class? Thoughts from anyone else with asthma?
Last week I had an absolutely awesome week. Everything clicked.
- Monday I had an initial interview with the State for a new job.
- Tuesday I celebrated a friend’s birthday. Tuesday night I got a call for a second interview for the State job.
- Wednesday morning I had my second interview and then we took Jack to college. The move in for Jack went way better than I expected.
- Thursday morning I was offered and accepted a conditional job offer. Thursday night I got my first tattoo.
- Friday was my birthday and it was exactly as it should have been. I just wanted some time with T-Bobby so we ate frozen pizza and watched a movie.
- Saturday more celebrating with friends.
- Sunday I worked some overtime and got to work with people I rarely see.
This week is going as well, I have a few hoops to jump through before I can officially be “hired” with the state, so it is a waiting game, paperwork and appointments to see if I am healthy and sane.
Poking The Bear
The bear would be Littlerunnergurl. This could be interesting.
When our older son Matt moved out we bought a puppy (Ella). Obviously the dog isn’t a replacement for a child but we knew we had some love to share. Ella absorbs a lot of love.
Now our other son Jack has gone away to college. Sheila and I both thought, “You know what, we still have some love to share.”
Sheila loves her new tattoo. I love my new motorcycle.
Oh and Jack, you might want to call before you come home, you never know what we might be doing.
Carson has been sporadically yelping in pain throughout the day. It appears one of his back legs hurts. We have never had any medical issues with him. Any ideas?
abqryan said: Does trivialbob just not age?
Nope, I think I age enough for both of us.
For those of you keeping track at home, I have lost two followers after my flash back Friday post. Someone must not like red heads. Yah, that’s it.
Flash Back Friday. The day I was sworn in as a deputy sheriff. September 2005.
I have spent almost my entire adult life working in law enforcement. I started out as a dispatcher, managed a 911 center and eventually got my law enforcement degree and hit the street.
I do what I can to make a difference in the communities I serve. Sometimes making a difference involves writing a ticket, or arresting someone to prevent further criminal behavior. I embrace opportunities to spend a little extra time with a victim or victim’s family. For instance, I am working a case of a 15 year old who drowned after some adults provided him with synthetic marijuana. The case is still under investigation, but I touch base with the victim’s mother weekly to talk about the case or anything else she wants to talk about. She needs to know I didn’t forget her son or what happened and I will hold someone responsible for what happened to him.
I know people are outraged about Ferguson, Missouri. I am waiting until all the facts come out. The thing about these investigations is anyone willing to talk to the media will get to give their account of what happened. Law enforcement on the other hand is allowed to say very little until the investigation is complete.
When generalizations are made about “all cops” being bad, heavy handed, trigger happy and uncaring, remember, I am part of all cops.
Woohoo, job interview Monday. Send good juju.
