{November 29, 2012}   Exciting Weekend Ahead!!!

It’s snowing!!! It wasn’t much fun playing on the firetrucks at training tonight with the snow and wind, but I survived.

This coming weekend will be very exciting. We are having our annual family Christmas party on Sunday and about an hour into it my brother and I are going to be paged to the Fire Department. We will meet up with a few others and then parade back to my house in the ambulance and two of the engines. Our Chief is going to summon my brother’s girlfriend outside to the waiting apparatus and my brother is going to step out of the engine, go down on one knee and ask his girlfriend to marry him!!! I received the engagement ring via UPS just this evening. It’s really going to be amazing.

As for myself… I just got a truck load of crap dumped on me by Chief. He’s going on vacation in two weeks and will be gone before our section of the Annual Town Report is finished, so he’s leaving it up to me. There’s so much that has to be done before the report can be finished. I will be spending a huge portion of the next couple of weeks at the station on the computer. I don’t feel up to all of these responsibilities but how can I say no? My future career depends on what I can do for the Chief now and how well I do it. He’s put a lot of faith in me and given me many more opportunities than he has my fellow fire fighters and EMT’s. I can do it. I will do it. I’m going to do it. I’m trying to convince myself that I’m capable. Let’s hope I am.
