Today was my first day at my new job. It was a long day. They are throwing a lot of information out at me. For the next two weeks, I will be attending training classes. After that, I will be doing a shadowing program, and then I will attend 3 weeks at a training camp in Georgia. Then once I complete my year probation, bam… I am in for good.
Today we did a lot of administrative papers. We picked insurance, retirement, savings… We learned about employee conduct. We were sworn in as officers of the law. It was interesting. I heard many stories. I cannot repeat them though, because they are not for public knowledge. I met some interesting people, some interesting in a good way, some not so much. Tomorrow we really begin training. We will learn policies and about inmates. Next week they are going to teach me how to shoot stuff. I have such a cool job.
The girls spent the day with my mom since David was at work all day too. They got Catherine a hair cut, ate hot dogs, and went to a movie. My mom also made sure they did chores and helped Carolynn make dinner. I had thawed some chicken thighs. Carolynn did an oven bbq on them and she made a nice homemade mac and cheese. All of it was very good and I will be taking some for lunch tomorrow. It was very nice to come home and have someone else make the dinner. Carolynn was very proud of herself too.
I spent most of this evening filling out all that paperwork, picking insurance and assigning beneficiaries. It was a very tiring day.
Tomorrow I get to do it again. I am so excited.
