Here's the monthly update

Basically, this is going to be short and sweet to let ya'll know I'm alive and give you the condensed version of what's been goin' on. Went to Vegas and had a lot of fun. Niece got married up, so the purpose of the trip was fulfilled. We spent more money on food than on our hotel. Not that we ate a lot. We didn't. It's just expensive on the strip. We later learned the specials are off-strip and downtown. If we ever go back, now we know. Six days is too long to be there by the way. I think a nice three-day would be just about right. If we had tons of disposable income and could've hit a bunch of shows, the six days would have been fine. I doubt we'll go back. We've been and seen. Don't have any pictures, but once I do, I will post more on the trip.

School is going well although can't wait to be done with classes.

Work is great. Love it. DAMMIT, LOVE IT! I started casework on blood since that's the competency test I've taken and passed. Training continues :) I actually like going to work everyday which is a rare thing to feel in this country and I'm so happy I got the opportunity to experience it at least once in my life. I always sorta thought I'd end up in DNA but I love the Trace Division. We get to do so many different and unique things. It's fascinating. Loving it. (Did I mention that I like my new job? LOL!!!)

So, that's the quick and dirty update. We have the reception next weekend so as long as the weather holds I'll be heading up to NE three weekends in a row so you won't hear from me for another month. Consider that fair warning! Hope ya'll had a great Thanksgiving and ate lots of good food!
