30 Day's later.

Ok so it's been a while since I blogged. I always have time to get on the computer, and read the other blogs. I just don't ever feel like I have time to blog, or have anything to blog about. I don't get to go to fancy baseball games with my kids, or fly around the country and visit places like New York. So my blogs can be pretty boring. I guess the truth is, and the point of blogging is to at least tell whats going on, no matter how boring right. That and maybe just to share some thoughts.

So anyway I will tell you all this. Since there are so many that read this blog, and maybe that will pick up someday. Life is pretty good. Not a lot going on per say, but we have jobs, and all of life's essentials. Plus the gospel which is most important it keeps us in line. Or should I say it keeps my wife in line, and then she keeps me in line.

On another note I think I finally have things in order in my life to strive for that goal of what I have always wanted to do, or be in life. The main reason I moved to the United States was to achieve the dream of working in Law Enforcement.

I now have my citizenship which was the first main step. I have gotten myself on a better diet, and work out schedule which I have been needing to do for a while. So I have now taken the steps to start taking the tests with some of the different departments (city's) around the valley here in Arizona.

Just last weekend I went on a ride along with a friend of mine that I served with in the Massachusetts, Boston Mission. He grew up here in Chandler Arizona, and works for the Phoenix Police Department. His twin brother ironically works for the Mesa Police Department where I live. Anyway I went out with him just to get the feeling of it again, and to make sure that this is really what I want to do. And to go through the process. I do by the way.

The process can take up to six months, and that is without going through the academy which is usually 18 weeks itself. So if every thing goes smoothly I'm hoping to find a city here in the valley, and east valley for that matter in the next six months. So thats about the newest news I have, and trust me I will keep you all apprised of what happens and the process as it all unfolds.

I promise to try and be better at getting out more than one blog a month. There is no reason I can't try and do something at least every week. But I'm not making any promises either. I don't really have any new pictures to share. Sorry about that. There was a request to put up some pictures of me from when I lived in California. You know I do still have all of those pictures, but there on slides. So I will someday have to figure out how to transfer them over to the computer.

They make you a little depressed to look at them though. I had hair, and was still quite skinny. Now everything has gone to pot. Literally. Pot belly. Anyway since they were a request I still may follow through with it someday.

I hope you all are well, and I will blog at you again soon. Love the Anderson's.
