This has been a very busy week. HF has been commuting all week to receive training. He is going to post intsructor school. Or whatever you call it. When he gets home at night he has a ton of homework! On top of that, he's also had to work a couple of special events. Then I'm an idiot and all needy this week for some reason, so I've been staying up super late with him-just to be with him. Then I don't even hear him leave in the morning and am up with the kids in the morning after sleeping maybe 4 hours. TIRED. Why do I keep doing this? The best thing he told me from his training this week has been what a SWAT guy has said. When they were introducing themselves, one burly guy got up and said that he tunes anyone out that is doing training about tactical stuff unless they are SWAT. He makes friends wherever he goes, and came home today with business cards from other cops from other agencies. Connections are nice aren't they?
What else. My van has been in the shop all week and I've been walking everywhere. I like it! On the way to walking my daughter to school, we see the little game the city has been playing with the local gang members. They tag an underpass, the city cleans it up the same day. The next day there is fresh graffitti over the paint job, and even more painting on top of that. I found out today that we have a graffitti hotline that we can call to report graffitti. I also found out today that in our state and I'm assuming in many other states that you can ride the city buses for free if you are law enforcement or the family of LEOs. I think I might take advantage of that. Not for my enjoyment, as our bus system is somewhat lousy, but I think the kids would be way excited about it.
HF and I went
It is only 8:30 pm here but everyone is in bed and that's where I'm headed. Such a good week to have behind us. HF has now completed his certified instructor course or whatever it is called.
