Soon to be fire Mom;
If you really want to demonstrate to your soon to be firefighter that you love him, may I recommend SmartWool expedition weight wool socks. Theyâ€™re pricey, but very, very worth it. As far as being a nervous wreck, you should have seen my mom when she finally figured out that her baby fighting fires meant actually going near forest fires! That was not a fun conversation. Love him, support him, and trust his common sense and training.
Sammi et al;
Iâ€™m around, working crazy hard and havenâ€™t seen much in the way of fire yet this seasonâ€¦Iâ€™m not really complaining (well, yeah, I am). Working on turning a house thatâ€™s been a department of fish and game bachelor pad for forty years into something a bit more presentable and being Mom to three cats (brand new) and a dog (very confused). So Iâ€™ve got no shortage of projects, and my boyfriend has been laughing at me because Iâ€™m always doing somethingâ€¦sewing or stopping the bleeding on the dogâ€™s nose (he just doesnâ€™t understand that the kittens really donâ€™t want to be his friends).
