An Old chapter closes and the start of a new one beggins

It's official. I gave my 2 weeks notice to the City of Orem on Monday June 13th.  I was told I have to give a resignation letter so I wrote one up.  I think I did a very good job at it too.  I am happy to be starting a new career but sad to leave the great people that I worked with in Orem. 

I am happy to join the County Sheriff's office.  I hope to progress and do well in all they teach me.  I hope to advance and be a greater and better person.....OK what is with me I feel like I'm writing a speech for a graduation class or something!! Damn! so I took this new job, I'm excited about it, it's fast moving and a great opportunity for advancement.  That's always a bonus!! I hope I do a great job at it.  I'm really quite nervous but I think that once I get the hang of it I will like it even more.  as for now; I'll keep my fingers crossed.  It's a lot of stuff for a person to know......I wonder why they don't pay more to start?????

I'm happy to start on July 5th; we'll see what happens from there.

MMA-Mixed Martial Arts

I took Abraham, Javier and Grandpa Abraham to a MMA fight this past weekend.  I LOVED it and I know that the others did as well.

Abraham liked it so much he joined the MMA team Unbreakable so that he could fight when he's 18 years old.  I am really excited to see what he learns.  I can't believe it.....but I do support him in all he does just as I would hope he would support me in my derby tryouts and my derby team.

He's an awesome kid!!

Takin it all in.....

With the kids out of school and me training for a new job, It's been a little hard to blog.  Let's see....the kids were out of school on the 29th of was a very exciting and emotional day for me.  My baby is now going to be in Jr. High and my other baby is going to be in High School!!  Wow how time flies.

I will see about posting pictures but I want to blog a little more than I usually do.

I'm training for the booking clerk job at the jail.  It's a little overwhelming because there is a lot of info to learn but I know I can do it!!  I have a great teacher and great helpers.  I know that I will be asking a lot of questions along the way but I anticipate that I will do this job well.

I enjoy working at the jail believe it or not.  It's a good work environment and I don't feel bad for one person that is in there.  They made their bed and now they have to live with what they have done.

I heard a good quote the other day by Abraham Lincoln.....When I do good I feel good, when I do bad, I feel bad.  That is my religion....isn't that great!!

It's June 3rd.  Friday.  By this time it should be really warm.  ITS NOT!! I'm so ready for summer.  I want to lay out and take in the sun.  I have been thinking about a small business.  It seems like my paycheck is getting smaller and smaller and the bills are getting BIGGER AND BIGGER.  I hate that.  I don't like that I can't pay my bills and have a little money left over for fun.

The husband's job has not been steady and with me working part-time at 2 jobs I have just enough to pay the bills.  This sucks!! I think we need to rethink the way we do things and the things that we do have.

For now I will sell my beannies that I make along with the blankets too.  I can only hope for better things in the long run.  God always has a bigger and better plan.
