The wait is over!
The time has come!

I've been waiting a long time to be able to say this.....

I GOT THE JOB ... That's right ... I GOT THE JOB


(sounds of Hallelujah Chorus can be heard in the background).

This has been a long long process, considering I first heard about this from a friend over two years ago. That's the government for ya...

As of the second week of March I will officially be an employee of the Boulder County Sheriffs Department. I'll be working for a small sub-station in a tiny police department. My office will be in ... get this ... a firehouse (ah shucks huh girls).


As if that isn't enough, it's for more pay and less hours. It's a government job with all the perks and hassles that go along with that. Great bennies, great time off accrual and ... my office is in a firehouse (hehehe).


What more could a girl ask for? (besides winning the lottery so I didn't have to work at all.)

More later...
