The police academy may ruin my wedding plans....

Recommended Posts

How long is the police academy? I know it depends on the particular city, but I've been hearing about 6 months . . . crybaby2.gif

 

FI is in the final stage of the recruitment process for the Newport Beach Police Department, and if his background investigation goes well (which we are confident it will because he's clean as a whistle), it looks like the academy will be starting for him very soon. I'm hoping that it happens before the end of the December so that he will be done in time for our June 26th wedding.....but if not, I have no idea what we're going to do worried2.gif

 

FI has successfully been working as a Realtor the past 4 years, but since the market has turned into crap and our nuptials are nearing, with my blessing he pursued a chance to enter the police academy. It's something he's secretly wanted to do, but never thought I'd go for. Newport PD is one of the highest paid departments in California and thankfully is a generally safe area, which is the only reason why I agreed to it. If all goes well, he will be easily making a 6-figure salary in the next 2 to 3 years.

 

Things happened so fast, he studied and trained his butt off and from what I've heard it's not easy to get through NPD recruitment process. I am so happy and proud of him, I totally support him and this is a wonderful opportunity for us. But today I will find out if the academy will run into our wedding plans, if so, I don't know what we're gonna do....we've already got at least 10 people who have booked flights, accommodations, and we've hired most of our vendors. My mom suggested that FI just fly down for the weekend, but are you kidding me? How can I be happy being in RM for 2 weeks and only getting my hubby for 3 days....I feel like crying everytime I think about it. sad.gif Am I being selfish?

 

My heart is breaking just thinking of our plans falling apart because thus far everything has been such a smooth and wonderful process. Please keep your fingers crossed that things work out. FI will be talking to the investigator conducting his background investigation later today, and hopefully I'll know more about where we stand....

Wow that's a really hard situation but don't get too upset about it until you know for sure. Once you know for sure you'll be able to make more decisions about what you'll do. Right now just keep your fingers crossed that he gets the job and the academy will be over before the wedding. Maybe it will end right before you leave and it'll be a nice relief for him after all that hard work and now starting the next chapter of your life. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

I'm so sorry this situation is coming up, but I agree with tcram...don't worry about it yet, you will just end up making yourself sick. Let's hope he gets through recruitment and the academy has a heart and helps y'all work it out to where your wedding plans aren't harmed. Good luck with everything...keep us in the loop...you know we are here for you!

What an exciting opportunity! I'm going to agree with the others that you can't let the what ifs make you upset. I know that's easier said then done, especially with your wedding planned. Hang in there!

Thanks gals for keeping me in check ~ all of you are right, I need to stop making myself sick and hope for the best. He is supposed to be meeting with the investigator tomorrow morning to fill out paper work and schedule his lie detector test (yikes!!), and hopefully we will know more at that time. Until then my fingers are permanently crossed and my heart is filled with prayer ~ thanks again for all your support it really means a lot!!! cheesy.gif

That is tough, but a happy husband makes for a happy marriage so let him pursue this and see what happens. The timing may work out just right, and if not, we will be here to help you scramble and figure it all out wink.gif

Yikes, I'm sorry to hear you are stressing over that! But, congrats to him! This will be a posotive move for both of you because at least you both know you will always have a very steady income. Every department is different, like you said, because my hubby's academy was 8-9 months (LAPD). Good luck with everything and keep us posted.

 

By the way, we are almost neighbors now. Now that I got married, I moved to my hubby's house in Downey and Cerritos isn't too far away!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
