I think I can catagorize myself as a pretty astute individual. Not much gets past me unnoticed. If it does, it is probably because I am preoccupied with something else. There are some things that are expected in life. Like this uniform shirt that rarely makes it to the closet.
It is, more often than not, hanging on the drawer pull of his dresser. Its not a big deal, really. When I was getting ready for bed a few nights ago I turned on the lights and these caught my eye immediately
For those of you who are not sure what rank they are, they are Captain's bars. Yes, they are my husband's. He got promoted to Captain. It is a really big deal. I am so happy for him, yet I have mixed emotions. He will no longer be commander of the aviation unit, the unit he started about 10 years or so ago. Oh how he loves to fly and I really thought he'd do it until he retired. He says he is ok with it though. With this promotion comes more responsibility-2 precincts and about 100 personnel. I know he is up for it. Its not about that. I worry about his stress level and whether or not he will be happy with the decision he made to take the position.Yes, I know it is a better salary, a better pension, and better benefits, but I want him to be happy. He deserves to be happy.
Friday is the swearing in ceremony. We are all so excited. Most of his family and the kids and I will be there to witness this milestone in his career. I just hope I can get through it without crying. Wish me luck!
Thanks for stopping by!
