An exciting day!

So, this will be short because it's late.

Today our little Justy graduated from P.O.S.T.! He's a real, bonified police officer. He even has an off-duty badge in a fancy little flip thing like on CSI. Needless to say, he's really excited.

It was really great to get to go to the graduation. I took a shload of pictures, which I wanted to post tonight, but we got a new computer and haven't figured out the internet yet. As for my laptop, there's no more room on the hard drive for any more pictures, so... Yeah.

Lots of pictures tomorrow. Or the next day. I promise. At least by monday.

Anyway, I'm so proud of him. It really is an incredible accomplishment, and I know he'll be the best danged police officer there ever was. And the cutest. (I could tell he felt pretty schnazzy in that Class A uniform...)

He gets sworn in with Utah County Sherrif's Department tomorrow, and then he'll start work on Monday. We really are getting grown up, aren't we? It's kind of weird. Real jobs... real life...

Also, The ModBod started our roadshow at Costco today! We've been working toward this for over a year now, so it's really exciting, and the culmination of a lot of hard work. So go and buy our stuff. It's amazing, and it's really cheap now that it's there.

But it's only in Orem for the next ten days, so that limits it to Utah County residents pretty much. Hurry on in though!

FYI, my interview went well. I'll find out in the next week and a half or so. I'm kinda mixed about my feelings towards the place. The job sounded great, and I'm totally qualified, but, yeah, there might be a few too many lurking variables. (Statistics terminology! I'm so smart...)

Anyway, I'll keep you posted.

I feel like my life is flying by at a million miles a minute, and I'm hanging on for dear life. I really need things to slow down. A lot. But so much of it is not really in my control right now, so I just need to grin and bear it for a little while. But man, I'm tired, burned out, and ready to do a few things I enjoy. Like take a vacation...

Anyone want to take me somewhere sunny, warm, and where I don't speak the language? Then I wouldn't have to do anything except suntan, because they wouldn't be able to ask me to do it.

Or maybe just let me know if Carnival Cruise Lines is hiring a professional sunbather. I think it would be a great job because I could lay out there next to their guests, and instantly make them feel attractive, just by being around my pale, sun deprived body. I think it would boost customer satifaction overall. And everyone could be happy.

Justin could be boat security.

And sorry, that wasn't so short.

You crack me up, Amanda! I did hear that of a nudist colony in Georgia that was looking for a resident sunbather...you interested?? ;)

Hey I didn't even know Justin was graduating... We would have loved to come. How exciting for him! Tell him "Congratulations" from me. :)
