Finally, at last

Well, it happened! After all the phone calling and other attempts to see the apartment, we saw it during the day yesterday. I had to take off work to do it. But once we saw it, things started moving quickly. We went to the rental office to fill out applications (I did too, so they can find me a smaller apartment)my Mom paid the first month's rent and a deposit. They gave her some keys and just like that, my Mom has a new apartment and is moving!!!! Just had to get a LOT of exclamations in there.

I had to go back into work for a few hours to make up the time. BZ asked me if I could give her a ride home tomorrow (today, now.) So I was in semi-panic mode when I got home late. She wears nice clothes and is VERY picky, while the jeep, well, it's an old jeep and scruffy around the edges. I did the best I could to tidy it up at least a little. A lot of my son's stuff was still there from when he had the car accident. Luckily for me he was home and helped me clear out his stuff. Now the jeep doesn't look great or like a nice new car or anything, but is presentable.

Tonight's CPA is abou the local justice system, including the juvenile justice system and how cases are brought to trial. This Saturday we will get to fire weapons at the police shooting range, next Wednesday is about community policing and our graduation. Then we're done. You could not believe how sad I am about that. I love going every week and talking about police stuff. Guess I'll have to apply for the Police Auxiliary to keep it going!
