No more lying :(

DH was recently sent to a multi-day seminar on how to read micro and macro expressions (think body language) along with techniques for interviewing and interrogating suspects, victims, witnesses, etc.

Upon his return he sounded rather enthusiastic (for him) about what he learned, and what he recounted to me sounded interesting. While I applaud his efforts to improve himself and his career, I'm disappointed because that means no more secrets and lying for me! DH will know when I look up and to the right while crossing my arms that I'm totally fibbing! ha ha ha.

We're on vacation...

Yes, that means the baby finally came so we (I) have been in a baby-induced stupor for a week now. The little man showed up last Friday around 2 AM and it was INSANE. This means DH hasn't really been working and I have nothing of great interest to say. Even if I did, I'm not sure it would make any sense from all the sleep I've been missing. The one good thing is that DH can stay on his graveyard schedule and have night time baby duty. YES! :)

"good" news

DH found out that last week's suspect from the fight voluntarily gave a blood sample today. Hopefully sometime soon we'll find out about the possibility that DH could have been infected with anything "exciting." Thank goodness this means we bypass all the subpoena crap.

And, surprise, now he's started his Hep B vaccination series. THANK YOU! Gee, only taken him five years to get his act together on this one; too bad it was not really by his choice.

And for the record: STILL NO BABY! :(

Mrs. Fuzz over at A Police Wife has related stories about one academy classmate of her husband's whom she calls "CJ" or "Calamity Jane." My DH works with his own version of a CJ right now and I thought some of you might be interested in hearing.... Recently on shift they had a discussion of the various types of legal and illegal weapons citizens may own, and with a large arsenal in the briefing room the officers were asked which weapons were legal and illegal and why. DH's "CJ" said "Aren't they all illegal? They all have scopes on them which allow you to see your target up close." As DH related this to me he said "uh yeah.... and those binoculars you use for bird watching UP CLOSE are illegal too."

Following up on the "dumb girl" stories, later that night another (female) officer walked out to her POV to go home. She told DH not to laugh if her car didn't start. "It only seems to happen when I'm low on gas, and I need to fill up!"

Uh.... yeah... what do YOU think the problem is?? After some inquiries it seemed to DH like maybe she needs a new battery, but seriously... low on gas? Hmm......
