This is my first real blog! I have a blog on my Myspace page at Myspace.com/mtsrool, but I think I've only used it a couple of times. My friend Kristen (wife of Ari, another Telluride Deputy Marshal) has a blog and she said it was really easy. Maybe this will be a good way for everyone to keep up with things we are doing that I might forget to say on the phone. You can leave comments on each blog entry. Please do it! :)
TODAY is our SIX MONTH COLORADO ANNIVERSARY!!! Jay has just one more night working the night shift, then he will start days and we'll finally have the same schedule, working 10 hours Wednesday through Saturday. I'm so thankful for Jay's new job. It's so nice to be in a small, laid back town. Gone are the days of sudden SWAT call-outs, not knowing where Jay is going and what the outcome will be. No more meth labs, child abuse, prostitution rings, calls involving dead bodies, etc. Yes, there is still definitely crime in Telluride, but Jay is adjusting to small-town cop work just fine. The schools here are awesome and the kids have made lots of new friends. :) My friends are mainly the ones I've met at church (AlpineChapelonline.com) and the people Jay works with.
Tomorrow the kids and I will be passing out sacks in town for our church's annual clothing drive. I hear that the people in town are very generous and we usually have a wonderful donation day before the town's annual ski swap. I was planning a trip to Montrose to look at furniture, go to Wal-Mart and visit the new TARGET store, but we are expecting snow with possible accumulations of 5 to 10 inches. I might hold off on this shopping trip after all. Above is a picture Savanna took this afternoon of the snow moving over Ajax Peak. Everyone knows I like to talk and I'm on the computer many, many hours a week, so I'll be adding more soon! :)
