First things first…BIG OL HAPPY BIRTHDAY wishes to MSgt. B. You all hop on over there and tell him your glad he hung on for another year.
I have never been a car person or one who likes to drive. I waited until I was almost 17 to get my license. Of course, I lived in an itty bitty town in Iowa and didn’t really need a car, but the truth is I just never cared about it. My husband loves cars, so if I need one, I would tell him what I wanted, he would find, buy it and brings it home. My mini van, Rita was the first vehicle I had a lot of input into. I really liked her, but still never cared about driving her. Never went out and looked at her and if we went somewhere as a family TSM always drove. But, there is something about a truck or at least my truck.
I am in love. I can’t explain it, but I drive her everywhere and errands I used to dread I look forward to just because I get to drive my truck. My poor husband hardly gets to drive anymore. He says he doesn’t mind, but as he sits in the passengers seat, I see his leg twitch ever so often, so every few trips I toss him the keys. He is so kind to give up something he loves for me.
My trip to Texas isn’t gonna happen in October. There are a ton of reasons, but the biggest is time. I am gone 2 nights a week every week and I work every weekend in October, but one. I can not take the only weekend I am off away from the kids. I am beyond bummed. I was so looking forward to the trip. I am fortunate that I have meet some of the very best people on the planet through this blog and I was going to get to meet them face to face. However, as much as I truly wanted to do that, my kids want me to take them to the pumpkin patch with our dear friends and that is where I need to be, where I want to be. I will say it again…I am beyond blessed. Each and everyday I have the arduous task of trying to figure out what absolutely wonderful thing I get to do.
I missed another blogmeet. The gang headed to the National Gunshow and met for dinner afterwards. I had planned to go and show off Jayne, but my teenager wanted a mommy day and for some reason clothes shopping sounded more appealing than guns. The girl is strange, but, but, but she did ask if she could come to work with me. I asked John and he said yep, so this next weekend she will be accompanying me and fingers crossed maybe I can get her to shoot a .22 pistol.I need to find a .22 first, but that is just a minor issue.
M is doing so much better since we changed her diet. I mean the changes are nothing less than amazing. She is not as tired, her skin has cleared up, she has more energy, she hasn’t gotten sick in a few weeks and her headaches are almost nonexistent.I am one very relieved momma.
EMT is also going well. both TSM and I are having a great time and learning a ton. We will start to run calls here in the next week or so. They assign us a person to ride along with. Our town had a very busy weekend of fires, accidents and hurt kids. The scanner was going nuts. Both of us are excited to be a part of doing something positive for our community.
I have not read hardly any blogs to include my own. I have several hundred spam comments that needed deleting. I am doing my best to keep up. Thanks for sticking with me. I genuinely appreciate it.
