A poll just for those ladies who recently joined us!

How did you find us? I happened upon the 2003 weddings board, and while looking around, found this one, even though I'm not officially a cop wife yet (30 more days! yikes).

Do you have any suggestions for the board? I wish I had more time to spend here, you all seem so close and connected! Maybe some day soon...

Do you have a career? I am a social worker. I work with children who have a mental illness such as bipolar, posttraumatic stress disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, etc. It's an interesting job, and I really enjoy it.

What state do you live in? Missouri

How long has your dh/so been in LE? Almost two years

Tell us a little more about you! Well, where to start. I am getting married on 10-4! ( I know, I know, it's the most ironic thing that's ever happened to me.) We are in the process of buying a new home, I'm very excited about that. I'm not sure what else to write here. I hope to become a more active member of the group as soon as I am officially a "cop wife" and everything settles down a bit. I'm not sure if things will really "settle down" but after we move and the wedding, I sure hope everything at least tries to become normal, if that's possible. My stress level these days has just been through the roof as you can imagine! Okay that's enough about me.

I can't wait to participate more, you will have to excuse me as I come and go.

Jennifer (soon to be a cop wife)

How did you find us?

Just lurking around the ivillage boards...I started posting on the parentsplace board a few weeks ago, and so I was just looking around.

Do you have any suggestions for the board?

So far, so good!

Do you have a career?

I'm an Early Childhood Educator and right now work with birth to three children with special needs.



What state do you live in?

Alaska, at the tip top

How long has your dh/so been in LE?

Almost 5 years

Tell us a little more about you!

We're expecting our first kiddo this December and it is a girl! This is a very cool time for us both!

LMAO at the 10-4 thing! Good to see you again Jen! I can NOT imagine a more stresful job (yet rewarding) than a social worker!

Wow! That wedding is drawing very close, and the irony of your date is just hysterical. I'm sending you some calm, peaceful vibes because it sounds like you need them with all that's going on right now. Looking forward to getting to know you better when things settle down for you. SO glad you found us!

Congrats on that baby girl! I know you both must be so excited. I'm so glad you found our board, and it will be great to have someone from a different area. Our group is pretty diverse, but we love adding new perspectives! And I'm with Mel wondering if you've gotten any names picked out.

the 10-4 thing is hilarious.

We don't mind you sporadically jumping in/out. Trust me, I know how stressful wedding planning (and general life things) can be!

Good luck! Talk to you soon!
