So I have made a dramatic step in the right direction. I have been promoted to SGT and now have more responsibilites and duties to say the least. I’m so thankful for the direction that my life is heading. All I hope is that everyone around me will see me for me and not for my rank. We are all a team and that is how it works in this line of business. With that being said, my hours are changing which is good. I can now spend more time with my kids and hopefully not miss out on all the school activites and soccer games that I missed out of last year.
I was able to spend the 4th of July in Wilmington this past Wednesday, which was crazy. Drove down and got situated in a hotel about 2 1/2 miles out of downtown. I decided on not too drive so walked to downtown and it took me longer than expected, being that it was over 100 degrees out. But I did manage to take some photos along the way which is always fun. It wasn’t too bad when I made it into town, but later it was so hectic I couldn’t even find a place to stand much less a place to sit. All in all it was a nice night, I strolled around and went to a few of my favorite places. After the fireworks were finished I made my way back to the hotel for the rest of the evening. The next day I decided to take a drive to Carolina beach and finish the day off at Wrightsville Beach. It was a great two days which I will not see again only if I take vacation. So here are some photos of my Fourth of July excursion, enjoy.
