Hey everyone,

Today I start a new job. Finally have to get off my butt and work again. Darn it anyway. I was kind of getting into this life of leisure. My SO should be happy though, since everytime he’d call he’d ask me if I’d been called by my new employer yet. I can tell he’s getting anxious about fire season ending and having to exist on a base salary again. I sympathize with him, but it sure was nice to get to spend the summer at home with my daughter, plus be available to go do something when he had R&R.

I just had to laugh about the decompression stage of a FF when he comes home. Mine does it even on R&R. He must spend the first 2 or 3 hours he’s home scouring the house looking for what’s out of place or not done. Then he’ll make some comment about me having 2 weeks to get this or that done and can’t believe I didn’t do it. He’s ex-military turned FF, can you tell?

Hope your guy called last night. I was sending good thoughts and wishes all day, hope it helped. Write and report, inquiring minds want to know.

Have a great day everyone, and take care
