Rambling on a Thursday.

Here I am again!

I got a little behind on the blog - seems like life's river was moving too fast and I just got swept up in the current. Thankfully I didn't drown, but there was some flailing about. But I am back.

The way I post is being slightly changed - I realize I only have time to just spit out thoughts, quick, real, honest, and unkempt. Are you ready?

I have been sicker than a dog for two months. Sick with a cold, sinus infection, chest crap, and probably most annoying, nausea.

Found out in February that I am pregnant.

Thankfully only one baby.

That one baby is reeking havoc on my tummy.

Joshua has been transplanted. February 22 he received new lungs.

Joshua is still in Stanford, healing the best he can.

The Manteca Bulletin

The Manteca Bulletin has dedicated a lot of coverage lately to the gang shootings and issues we have been having here and in Lathrop. Over the weekend they reported the we intend to shift additional personnel out of investigative units and other special assignments to patrol to boost our response to the gang violence. I am not sure where they got that idea but it is not correct. We are at bare bones in all of these units and cannot afford to shift any additional personnel to patrol short of a significant emergency. This does not mean that we don't need to step up pressure on the gangs. Patrol, Detectives, and Street Crimes have all been doing a good job addressing gang crime are being as proactive as possible. But, we do need to get a handle on the problem before the hot weather gets here and school lets out for summer or we can expect even more violence.
