Happy Holidays!!!

I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas as much as I did. Somehow, I ended up have Christmas Eve and Christmas Day off. That hasn’t happened to me in over five years. I always seem to work on Christmas Day at least.

My daughter, who is three, had a wonderful day. Santa Claus was VERY good to her this year. It gives my heart such enjoyment seeing the excitement stretch across her face when she sees what present she received. And let me tell you, she played so hard all day with all of her toys that she crawled up in my lap and was snoring within two minutes. It is the simple things in life that keep us going.

Work has been insanely busy lately. We are running A LOT of 911 calls lately. And being a shift supervisor makes it that much more difficult at times. I am currently on break from school and start back on January 9th. I have been getting the itch to write and I really want to scratch it, but writing a book is a full-time job in itself. There will come a point when I have more time that I can do it. I have so many more novels planned that I want to write…wait….need to write.

I competed in my first Jiu-Jitsu tournament a few weeks ago. I won a silver medal (2nd place) in my division and a gold medal (1st place) in the absolute division. Not too shabby for my first tournament. I plan on competing again in June 2017.

I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays and stay safe. Merry Christmas and a happy new year!!!!
