Where have I been?

Geez, I'm a bad blogger! But thats ok you haven't really missed much, except maybe, well, oh yeah, after ten years with the Sedgwick County Sheriffs department, Bobby has resigned. Yep, quit, left his job, went on to greener pastures, etc. Now don't get me wrong, it was, is and will remain a bit scarey for us but for all intensive purposes, it was needed! It was a decision we didn't take lightly but we both know it is for the best! Or at least we keep telling ourselves that! Just kidding! He knew this decision was inevitable.

He was unhappy and it wasn't going to get any better no matter how much he tried. Thats what happens when you work for a government entity with elected officials. No matter how hard the little man tries and tries to be heard if they don't want to listen then they don't and really don't have to. That is why voting is so important (stepping onto my soapbox for a brief second!) We thought when we voted in our last Sheriff things would get better, ha! Things were said, promised, etc... in actuality things were taken away! Their response, "Because this is how we have always done it!" Yep, that simple! So I encourage everyone to be aware of the issues and vote!

But to tell you the truth, it has been a blessing. This decision has made Bobby face the issue of what makes him happy and what does God want him to do with his life? Anybody that knows Bobby knows that his two passions are his children and sports (I'm sure I'm in there somewhere !) He has always, since the day we started dating talked about teaching. Being a teacher/coach is something he has dreamed about for a long time. But as we started our life together it was clear this dream had to be put on the back burner. The need to provide for his family outweighed his dream of finishing college. Well when opportunity knocks, you have to answer! That is what we have done and starting this summer he will be on the road to finishing his degree! I find it only fair since he supported me through nurisng school that I support him with his dream! So in the meantime he will start a remodel of our kitchen and get a taste of what I did for 8 years, being a stay at home dad! Just call him Mr. Mom!

Oh and by the way, he can no longer get anybody out of jail or fix a ticket! So don't call! lol!
