Do you ever feel as if you have a billion things to do and don't know where to start? I am a to-do-list kind of gal and like to be able to scratch off the items as I get them done but for some reason I'm not getting there lately. I feel as if my brain will explode from everything that I keep cramming into it. I have no one to blame but myself for the condition in which I get myself into. . . I think that one of my goals should be putting my needs first before others. Which is hard for me to do since I am a people person but, the first step is my acknowledgment in the fact that I know that I have a problem.
So, Joey and I talked for a whole 5 mins tonight and I think that we will be in Muncie for at least 5 years before we will move. . . with the promotions and his career goals it will be about that time frame. I really don't know what I will be doing. . . teaching for the Deaf in this area seems to be quite out of reach. That was one of the reasons why I am working on my Plan B as an EMT...
But, it is annoying to me in the simple fact that I have spent a heck of a lot of money on this degree and will be working hard to pay it off for what? ? ? ...Nothing?
I know that in life we have paths that take us on journeys... in which we find new loves, passion, and meaning. . . and that is what I have gotten out of my journey here. I am on a new path of Public Safety/Service... I like the responsibility and rush. But as far as careers go- I don't have an insight in which I should be doing, so far the places in which I like to be the most I do not get paid.
I like this new background. . . summer is a great season and I love the beach. Joey and I will be able to feel the sand in our toes in a few weeks. Our honeymoon will be in Orlando, FL!!! We'll be driving down there after the wedding on Saturday and just going hitting the open road with the destination being a condo in FL. We'll take our time and explore and just LIVE...which is what I am excited for. . . being with my husband and making memories.

It's about time!

So, I have not had the time to update my blog. Sorry to those who were following. Life is just crazy and busy lately.
I passed all of my classes, of course... ;-) ... and now I am ONE class away from Student Teaching...then graduation.

Wedding planning has been difficult with school, EMT class, volunteering, working two jobs and having a little time for a social life. The wedding countdown is less than a month away and we're close to having everything accomplished.

For our honeymoon we are going to drive to Orlando, Florida. We are very excited and hope that everything falls into place, mostly financially.

Well, I am exhausted. . . this morning we woke up to our next door neighbor's house on fire. We woke up to seeing lights outside and Joe said: "I think their house is on fire." By the time he made it out of the room I had my clothes on and was going to get on my shoes to help. I got outside after making sure my medical bag was accessible from my trunk I found the I.C. (incident commander) of the person in charge of the scene. I identified myself...(Hi, I live next door and I'm an EMT student for Gaston Volunteer Fire Dept.) I checked out the kids and the neighbor and I tried to make them as comfortable as possible. She has a daughter so she grabbed a pair of pants for one of the kiddos and two pairs of socks. After the house was secure and the Fire Department was packing up gear, the family came was ready to have family members to come and get them. I invited them to come into my home but I think they felt bad/embarrassed.

After the wakeup call this morning I think Joe and I are going to put another smoke detector in our home and test them to make sure that they work.

Have you checked your emergency supply kits, smoke detectors, and emergency plans with your family? This is the season for severe storms and we all need to have a GAME plan in place when something happens...
Its just like they say, it's not IF its WHEN.

Take care guys leave any questions you can think of and I will do my best to answer them.
