Today Is Tuesday. You Know What That Means....
The original plan for this past weekend was that I was going to an EMS (yawn) seminar. I was excited to be getting away but thought I would be spending the days at lectures and looking at the newest EMS supplies etc.
After I arrived, I stopped by one of the local firehouses to say hi. (that's one of the cool things about being a firefighter....every firehouse is home). Anyway, they were just starting a major training weekend. THEY LET ME STAY AND PLAY!! They got some gear for me (after verifying my certifications) and I had a BLAST (excuse the pun).
Although I haven't posted about it yet, I have been pretty sure that I wasn't ever going to get to be in any more burning buildings. That has had me much more bummed out that I would have ever imagined. But that's another post for another day. This weekend was exactly what I needed.
I wasn't able to take pictures, so I found some older ones to use to show you what we were doing.
Oh, and I'm not even sore....no siree! not sore at all..... (well, that's just a little lie.....little lies are ok....right?.....after all, they don't hurt anyone........) Ahem, well, I'm done typing now. If I could stand up I'd get up and go in the other room. Hello....Could someone come help me get up? I seem to have stiffened up while sitting here. Hello?....Anyone there? Oh well....It was DEFINITELY worth it!
