My Officer's First Day...


The ecstatic feeling that went along with seeing my husband sworn in and with his shiny new badge are still in the back of my head, but today has brought along a few new emotions.



He just left for his first shift, and I've been crying ever since. How will I get used to sleeping without him in the bed? Eating dinner alone?

My pistol will be kept close to my pillow from here on out.

I know what you mean girl! Welcome to the first day of the rest of your life ;) It's a lot to process isn't it?! I hope you blog more and share your stories. I love that you found your way to police blogland. It's one of the best things I ever did as a rookie wife. Congrats to you and hubby! it's definitely something to be proud of and celebrate. And how cool that he started on Independence Day.

Welcome indeed. I found your blog via Mrs. Fuzz's blog. I blog about my adventures in making jewelry, but I'm thinking I totally need one for my adventures in being a police wife. My hubby graduated april of last year and we've been married since Oct. 07, and let's just say I'm not nearly as well adjusted as Mrs. Fuzz. I'm right there with you. Tonight is night number three of hubby's switch to graveyard shift, and I'm not taking it well considering its 1 am and I'm putting off going to sleep. I hate sleeping alone too, and yes it is like being single again. As for emotions on graduation day...I was on the verge of a nervous breakdown the entire day. It's total culture shock, and I was totally unprepared. Our department is very clique-y, and I haven't been invited 'in' yet. This makes the transition even harder. It takes time, but you'll adjust... The best advice I got, but didn't take until recently was to do a ride along. If you can't go out with your hubby yet, go with someone else in the department. It did wonders to help my fears. Good luck and God Bless to you and your new officer! -Jess

Welcome welcome welcome! It gets better, I promise - making lots of plans with family and friends is the best, because then you're out keeping busy instead of feeling lonely at home. I wish we all lived in the same area - then we could all have rotating dinner night and laugh it up together. Keep blogging, and glad you're here!
