Thanks believer.

I thought you all should also know that I stubbed my pinky toe earlier this week. It's still purple and swollen a teensy bit, but the combination of that with my arthritic big toe have me moving in a zombieesque fashion. Makes me giggle a little which distracts from the pain...so that's a good thing.

My H got a tour of a crime lab yesterday. He someone from thereabouts on secondment with him and he wants to send one of his team over there....

He was able to ask the question that bugs him most when he is watching CSI....how does super glue work to reveal fingerprints!

I'd have thought it would have been obvious to a chemist!

Hope the bruised pinky improves quickly.

How long til you find out?

I always knew that the cyanoacrylate would bind to organic factors from the skin that were deposited on the surface. It's cool to read further and see what methods they use to make the reaction happen or accelerate the reaction rate.

I won't hear from them again until after the 25th, when the job closes and they finish reviewing candidates. I hope that knowing a senior criminalist in the lab helps my chances.

SL,

Praying for you!!! That would be such a cool job. My DD wanted to do that but unfortunately she ended up on the other side of the law for a time and that blew her chances of doing anything that requires a background check.

You'll be a female Horatio!!! Get the sunglasses ready!

...and the cool one liners! Do I have to dye my hair that shade of red? I'm not sure that will look too hot on me. If I do, can I have Marg Helgenberger's body? Alas, I am 5'4", 145 lbs and brown hair. Not the sex pot she is, but I am a cutie wink

As for your daughter, well, she could still find something cool to do. We all have a passion, it's just a matter of finding a good venue to express it in. Doesn't have to be literal. I enjoy solving a good mystery. Science is my favorite venue. Previously, it was process development. Taking a starting product, such as a gene sequence, and developing a method to express and purify. A cool job, never felt like 'work'. It was the people that could make the job a bummer...which I didn't suffer for very long.

This job would be more literal, I suppose, but still worthy of the 'mystery title. This job would also make it a heck of a lot easier for me to find work when we decide to move. I can work myself up to a higher level, even apply for a senior criminalist position once I have a few years experience. I am already well qualified for the entry position. I qualify for the senior job with education, but not crime lab experience.

I feel this one. I want this one. It seems like things just fell into place. Feels natural. I appreciate any positive thoughts, prayers or mojo y'all send my way.

I like to suggest to people who've run into the law to consider starting a business. It's a great way to find something you're passionate about and you don't have to pass a background check.

We never watch on Sunday. Azman hates commercials, so we always wait for it on demand. I look forward to seeing it though. Ain't it fun to hang with your girl, though.

Got a call back from the city. They are reviewing my application. Fingers crossed

Got a call from radiology. My mammogram is abnormal...again. Keeping positive, but I got that tingly feeling in my head right now. Last time it was dense breast tissue. Fingers crossed.

Those are the facts of life.

Fingers crossed! I'm actually working at a cancer center now, and I see a lot of success stories with breast cancer. You'll be one of 'em, I'm sure.

Thanks, Not. You are always a great cheerleader and I always appreciate it.

Cat, thanks and congratulations on your new position. I'm hoping to start anew, too. I had an abby normal mammogram a couple of years ago. I'm hoping this goes the same way. It's just so disconcerting when you get that call. Nothing stays in focus for very long during these in between times.

Pasta and bread make a girl feel somewhat better. Now I need a nap.

I received an email that said they were reviewing my application, which, if approved, will be sent on to the hiring section. I was told this will be a lengthy process. The words "appeciate your patience" were a part of the email. Probably going to be a long while. Luckily, I have a fairly safe position now, so I can sit tight. Sounds terrible of me, but the longer I have to wait, the more the hiring pool will dwindle due to impatience and other job offers for them, which will turn things more to my favor.

Sooooo....patience, Chai razz

So, my second round of Mammogram came back clear. Yay!

The job is going to.take a lot longer...6 months to a year, from what a senior criminalist told me. I have a job, so I can wait. It will give me some time to study up and even work on a presentation. Since I don't present on this job and have not for a very long time, that will be the most difficult part for me.

Home life and marriage is good if not great. Rafa, my stepson, seems to be maturing itty bits at a time, which is progress for him. He had been very disrespectful to his mother and sisters, calling them b*tches. Azman took him camping and hiking and had some deep conversations with him, which seemed to help Rafa to think about his actions. Work in progress.

LilD, my son, had a rough 3rd quarter in school, bit managed eke put low Bs and one A. He's made a plan for keeping his grades at Bs and higher and it seems to be working. I'm proud of him for taking responsibility for his grades. He's a good kid.

Tiger is doing well. He's decided to work out with the football team, so he will.be on JV his junior year. I'm excited to be a part of his life. The kidz have no Idea how much we love them. One day, when they have kids of their own, they may.

Teenagers sure do change the face of parenting as you know it.

Great NEWS on the mammogram!

And glad that the roughness is smoothing somewhat on the homefront.

I don't know if it was my ability to stay calm and be patient, or the amount of benadrool I've had to take due to allergies, but I wasn't nearly as,worried about the abnormal Mammogram as I was in 2009 when I had the,same issue. Glad that is over though. I feel relieved and I'm really tired tonight.

It's been a crazy few years for everyone in this family. I'm hopeful we can all get smoothed out. Blended families are tough and special. I am blessed.

The teenage years are fascinating. I remember being a teen but I don't believe I was this disrespectful. I DO remember believing I was always right. What a pain in the butt that must have been for my mom. Of course, compared to my sister, I was an angel. angelhorns
