Starting Over…

I sit here…. So many things bouncing in my head and it is near impossible to keep them from jumbling up and bursting out.  Writing… about life and everything surrounding life is just what I do…

Typing “…” is also what I do…  A lot!

I wrote and kept a blog for over 12 years and in the blink of an eye I tore is all down.  The history and information shared removed, overnight.

I actually ran 2 blogs.  One about homesteading and building a homestead (of which we still live on) and the other about being a 911 dispatcher.

ThumperLane Homestead was where I posted about all the mishaps and crazy things I was up to.

The Dispatcher and Her Officer was were I posted about my job and what it was really like.

With both blogs I made a huge about of friends.  Traveled the country to meet many of them and became good friends of which I am still in contact with today.

So with the many year absent of the police site and the several year absence with the dispatcher site I am coming back.  Coming back to combine them all into one blog where you can see what it is really like… Life after dispatching and what it’s like creating a world that is well rounded and full of love and life.

It’s not easy.

Living a life where the only time someone calls you is when they are having a bad day.  It’s not easy knowing no one in the real world understands that part of your life and it’s not easy when people ask  you…. ‘what’s the worst call you’ve ever taken?’

I won’t be hiding any of that with you.  But I won’t be hiding gardening and my love for Jesus with you either.

Remember when I said a well rounded view of what life is like?

It all starts here…..

In the office, on our homestead, listening to the hawks steal and eat a baby bird out from under Mama bird in it’s next.
