Iâ€™ve kind of been out of the loop for a few weeks, but it seems like the family front is gearing up pretty well for the coming season. My crew goes on the board May 1, which is kind of hard to think about with snow coming down outside my window. Tonya, FireWife, congrats on the babies (human and equine)! Tonya, I rode and trained jumpers, hunters, and dressage horses for nine yearsâ€¦thereâ€™re actually more horsey fire people out there than you might realize. My BF is currently trying to seduce me into gettinâ€™ domesticated or some such by dangling the prospect of nice little house with a couple of ponies out back, maybe a big dawg or twoâ€¦(ahhhhh! Wait! Iâ€™m the crazy footloose feral firefighter chick! I canâ€™t be thinking this way! Tied down? Domesticated? No! A fate worse than death! Butâ€¦poniesâ€¦big dawgsâ€¦uh ohâ€¦). Sigh. Maybe Iâ€™ll just get claustrophobic and make a run for Mexico. Not at all a reflection on my Bf, whoâ€™s wonderful, just thatâ€¦eeeh, I donâ€™t know. Just a little too soon, I think.
