Update for September 2005

Well the fire drills at work went rather well so far.  I have one more at 2am but think instead of working on the computer for the next several hours, I will get some sleep.  I just finished folding clothes from the laundry I did.  Lots was from the island so that will get put away until next season.  Mostly towels and things like that which I hate to leave out there.  This way they are clean and just waiting for the spring.  I still have to pack but I am only out there one night.  Will leave around 6am for the island.  Have an 8am boat to catch.  I will be staying at the hotel this weekend.  Have a fire drill with my department out there at 10am.  Looking forward to that since it will be one of my last for the season.  Next week have lots of plans.  Will be an evaluator at a Fire 1 evaluation on Saturday and then have been invited to a "wet down" by a friend.  Wet Downs are when you welcome a new piece of fire equipment (Engine, Truck, Pumper) to the service.  So that should be fun.  I miss most of the events in New Jersey since they are normally on weekends during the summer.  But this department likes to have their events more formal and without the water.

Wow, hard to believe that I have not written for so long.  My mom got home today from a month long trip and reminded me that I have not done anything here.  With school just finishing last week (oh, I got an A-) and then having Fire School twice a week, it has been very busy.  Right now I am trying to finish the minutes for the last board of director's meeting and then get some sleep before having to be at work first thing in the morning.  I have a very full day tomorrow with 3 scheduled fire drills at work that I have been asked to help with.
