A new adventure!

Well, here we go! Wayne got a job down in my hometown of Valdez, Alaska as a Police Officer!! This has been his dream since he was in high school, so to finally achieve it is AWESOME! He started working Thursday and is thrilled already. Since starting he's already getting better on a whole new style of shooting.

What does this mean for me? Well, considering I'm 317 miles away it's kinda crappy right now. Luckily he works a week on week off schedule so while he's training he gets to come home on his weeks off. So obviously we have to move. I'm so happy to be moving out of the place we're in now. We tried a couple times before to find a better place, but everything we were finding was WAY more expensive for what we have, or the same price but with out some of the stuff we have, so we've sucked up it and stayed. The problems come when we have to find a place down there to stay. Since the population of the town is only a whopping 4,000 people living quarters (unless you want to buy) are hard to come by. So we've already begun the search.

I'll probably stop working around August, which will be a bummer. This is a great job and pays great and we're covered by the union, but love takes me elsewhere...

Leavin on a jet plane...

I'm heading out to sunny and oil infested waters, Florida tomorrow! Yippee!! Frankly I could care less whether or not the water is oil infested because I'm going to see my GRANDMA! WOOHOOO!! And my mom and I get to be with both of them on Mother's day!! Yahoo!!

I mean it's not like we do a whole lot. Me and my mom's days consist of waking up, eating breakfast, reserving our chairs out on the beach, going out to the beach, laying, coming in, eating, going back out, laying, coming back in, eating, watch some TV and sleep. Productive, I know, but that's kind of what this week is for. We just like to relax.

After all, there is a pool, right? :D My travels will be long. I leave at 3 pm tomorrow and don't get in until 10 am tomorrow and that's losing 4 hours too! yikes! That includes 2 layovers. A stop in Seattle, WA and Dallas, TX. Neither of them are excrutiatingly long, but I hate having to board THREE freaking planes. I've managed (so far) to get a whole row to myself on my first flight. We'll see if that ends up being the case when I check in tomorrow.

I like to think of this as my pre-wedding break. I mean after I get home there will only be 2.5 months until the wedding and frankly, that's not a whole lot of time. We've got pretty much everything, it's just the idea of it all coming together has me wondering if it will really all come together. My mom always teases me about all the pink, but I think we've done well in balancing. Not too much pink, JUST enough :)

Anyway, until I return...
