You know you're married to a peace officer when every bit of "regular" life is somehow comparable to law enforcement life and there will always be a valuable lesson to learn through that.

For example: I once bought a package of multicolored ballpoint pens that wrote in the same color of their outside plastic. Nice, sturdy pens with see-through plastic and rubber grips at the top. You know the type.

Anyways, since I work in an office where supplies can sometimes be "borrowed" from your desk, and these were super special, glorious pens, I cut tiny strips of paper, wrote my name, unscrewed the bottom cap and slipped my name into each pen. So proud of my handiwork I told The Deputy of my labeling accomplishments expecting a "cool, babe" or an acknowledging nod at the least. Instead, he looked at me and said, "You know who else labels all their stuff like that? Inmates."

He's so helpful.

  1. Fantastic to find another Sheriff's wife out there. I have a blog too at:
    Let me know if you ever need to vent. It's not an easy life being married to a Sheriff, but well worth it if you man loves you.
