I've got a secret...........

my son called last night to clue me in.......he said his wife was about to bust and was sure she would slip and tell me......they wanted to wait til the learned more and had a sure thing to tell me........sounds like my first grandchild!  NOT!!!!  but just a good if everything falls into place correctly.   My son has an interview for a County Police Officer on Tuesday.   He wants this so bad and this will be the third try.   First, the local police attempt - highest written score, highest physical score and then politics.  One of the two officers hired at the time made sense because this young man had put himself through the academy therefore the township could put him right in the field at no cost to the taxpayers.  As for the other one hired at the time, it was politics which is nothing disparging to the officer hired.  It is sometimes who you know.  Second try, he decided to try the County Police and again, high scores, etc., etc. only to end his pursuit with a hiring freeze.    He is a good kid (OMG! he is 30).  He is a volunteer fireman, volunteer EMT, a great step-father, a considerate husband and son..........every mother's joy.   I doubt his sisters would agree.   His is and will always be the little brother.   Sometimes I swear they think he is still 7 years old.  He really never was a problem growing up except for the orneriness and that one speeding ticket early on.  So my fingers are crossed that I am not jinxing this but rather pulling in all the good vibes.   Everyone out there hold good thoughts and say a prayer.   It's only the first interview and as I have found out in the past this is a slow process........I doubt this is for the academy class starting mid-July but rather the September class.........don't know but I am saying that extra prayer.  Good thing he doesn't follow my blog or he'd say I put a "fat" picture of him on here.

I'm sending good vibes from here that he gets in. I'd keep my fingers crossed but I need them to stitch. :)

Good luck to your son.
