9 Months Later....

     August 1st marked the end of Michael's probation period at work. During your first 9 months as a University of NC employee you are on can not ask off, they can fire you for no reason, etc. In some ways it is hard to believe it has already been 9 months, {because at the beginning of that time period you thinks that 9 months is never going to end.}..and yet on the other hand, it seems like he has worked there forever. :)
    Michael spent his last week of probation doing training. They did a lot of class work, but some of it was hands on. They put pads on and beat each other up with batons,  were pepper sprayed and tasered. All this was done so they would be certified to carry and use them.
   Also, a couple months ago he was required to take a test that most people fail at least once, sometimes 2 and 3 times. Well, he just got his results back and not only did he pass, but got a 90% on it! I was just a little proud.:)
    We are so thankful Michael has a job that he loves and works well with our schedule. With jobs being so hard to come by, so many people have to settle for something they don't like, or pretty much, just whatever they can get....So, we are counting our blessings!

Pepper Spray...The patch was on his one eye because it was still messed up from his Bells Palsy, however, it didn't do any good... the spray just went right on through.

Practicing shooting the taser.
