Well that was short lived.

Well my career as a dispatcher is over. I am not going to go into but I thought I would give you that update. I am looking for positions again. I hope you are all well. I just hope I can find something to help my family.

Update on life...

I guess it is September and you are all due an update, whoever you all are.

Started my new job the last week of August so I have been going two weeks. Working four ten hour shifts starting at ten in the morning, Monday thru Thursday. It is amazing how tired you can get sitting in front of a radio waiting for something to happen. I have been getting better at hearing the things I need to and responding as necessary. I never knew dispatching was so complicated. It also gives me a different outlook on things. I see news stories about shootings of police officers and I think about how hard that was for the dispatcher to hear that and stay in control.

However, I do think that this will be a good job for me and I hope the improvement continues. I think this is something I really want and didn't even know it. I am just glad Pete knows me and encouraged me to apply back in April. Still waiting on my insurance cards to show up.

Because of the new job I had to put the boys in daycare. Its hard on me as I knew it would be, as it is on them. Wyatt was struggling that first week, he still hates it when I leave. I am not sure exactly what Jackson's take is since he has school too - I think he thinks he is too old LOL! I think I have some first day of school pictures somewhere but they aren't great. I had to rely on phone pictures since my camera is broken. I will see if I can get them downloaded and posted.
