I thought for sure my FF would go to Utah, they were on a fire on the Mojave National Preserve, only an hour or two away, but they came home, but not before catching a few extra hours on an 800 acre blaze, not too far from our house, on their way home. He had one day off, and he was off to Alaska, I got see him for a couple of extra days though, they had trouble finding a flight because of the 4th of July holiday travel. Heâ€™ll be gone for 21 days Iâ€™m sure, but I donâ€™t mind because Iâ€™ll be in Colorado!! Iâ€™m actually leaving a week early since heâ€™s not going to be here, Iâ€™m happy to have the extra time there.
Taz- I hear ya, its rough being the better half in a new place. I was in the same boat last year. I had just moved here at the end of April, after being separated from him for two months in Colorado, then we only had a few weeks together before he started going out. I was SO lonely, it was hard too being pregnant because I was so emotional. Its much better now, I donâ€™t really have any friends here, but the baby and my dogs keep pretty good company. Iâ€™m so busy most of the time, I donâ€™t notice that heâ€™s not around until I crawl into my empty bed at night. Where did you end up moving to anyways? Maybe we can get together.
Robbie- your sister will never stop missing the smell of smoke. Sometimes I find something around the house that smells like fire, and I always go back for a second wiff. I know, itâ€™s a little weird, but I have a saying about FF, once youâ€™re out of the blue and into the black, you can never go back. Actually, I stole it from the great Neil Young, but he doesnâ€™t have to know about it.
Hi Rebecca!! Welcome aboard. I used to be a FF, so I donâ€™t worry too much about my hubby, but I would imagine that other people who donâ€™t know so much about it probably worry a lot. Youâ€™ll get used to not having him around by the end of the season, and donâ€™t worry too much if you donâ€™t get that phone call, sometimes they have to work a long shift, or go some where with no cell coverage, I used to expect my morning call too.
Iâ€™ll be leaving tomorrow, I wonâ€™t be home for 4 or 5 weeks, my Dad does not have internet at his house, but Iâ€™ll probably check in from time to time, most of my friends have internet I can use. Have a great 4th everyone!!!!
