Domestically Challenged

Well, to all those ladies (or men, whatever) out there, I must say that I do not possess one ounce of capability when it comes to cooking (as my sister can attest to). So, last Saturday (and trust me on this, I really need to gear up before I decide I'm-a gonna cook us a meal) I decide that next week, I WILL cook a meal. Phew. It was tough. But I managed. All I needed to pick up was chicken. So I had Dust cook the chicken (what a sweetheart-cause apparently that was just too much for me to do...) and I mixed all of the ingredients together for what else, man's favorite meal: a casserole. So excited he was, I tell ya. But alas, as I'm busy just a cookin' my oh-so-delicious meal of mine, Dust decides he's gonna cook chicken strips. Okay, not cool. The one (yeah, 1) day I decide to cook, he decides he's going to deep fry some strips of a flightless bird and take away from the grandiose meal that was to be made all by me (minus any side dishes whatsoever and the fact that he had, in fact, cooked the chicken). :( Boo.

But, long story short (only because I wouldn't want to bore you with the details of what or how I actually made a meal) dinner turned out a success and I think I ate more of Dusty's meal than mine; but helloooooo, he made onion rings and they just smelled so good and dripped of just the right amount of grease.

And then my stomach hurt. :(

Don't pull me over officer!!


So Dust is going on his first ride-along on Saturday (8 hours, yeesh) and is all pumped. The reality is sinking in, he'll someday soon shoot a real gun. (Juuuuust kidding!) The biggest bummer is he still has no uniform. They should have rentals so that he can pretend he's a full-fledged deputy (and yes, they probably do have rentals but let's just not go there). Maybe he can spray paint a squirt gun (flashbacks of Fun with Dick and Jane just popped in my head) and tape it to his belt, just so he feels like he's REALLY made it! :)

We're still waiting to hear back from the background check.... Still.... Then he has another interview, my goodness, then a psychological exam, a physical, and something else that'll definitely prove he's the best candidate they have ever had! After starting this in July (no worries, of this year, not last), the light (fyi: at the end of the tunnel, for those not as bright) is getting so much brighter we're almost completely blind. Aahhhhhhhh. Good stuff, good stuff.

Master's Way

Okay, so Dust and I absolutely love listening to the absolutely, crazily tall Todd Friel. So I thought I'd add a link, just in case anyone cares... and, if you so desire, he also has a free podcast. :)

Great tips for talking to the unsaved and how every true Christian ought to live!

Well, this is my first blog entry. Feels like I'm writing a captain's log. However, hello to all, I hope I update enough, but really can't promise anything. :)
