Yes Sammi, he is still here!!!! He has been home with a cold since Monday, and again today his Engine Captain told him to stay home for the next 2 days, and then he has three more of his regular days off to recoup! They are afraid that he will bring his germs and take out the whole crew. So here he is driving me nuts, cause he wants to be out there with the fires! Should I set the back yard ablaze to keep him happy? Poor guy, he only gets sick once a year, and this year it hit him during fire season.
Abs- I would definitely help to fill up a “while he is gone” list, and a “home coming list.” I may be new to being a fire fighters wife, but after 8 years of being a Maine wife, I think I have things handled. Don’t get me wrong, I STILL WORRY, but at least he is not at war, right?
The good thing to having him home…the dogs knocked my back fence down, and he is here to deal with it!
Good night all, off to try and get some sleep.
Here’s the list with some suggested categories lots of blank spaces. If you have suggestions for changing the format, let me know.
For the time being, let’s feel free to brainstorm. I can put tips here on familysaid and I’ll add them on the list with the contributor’s name (so people can address questions to the contributor if they have any later). Dawn, if you have any suggestions from your military handbook, please send ‘em in. We don’t have to reinvent the wheel for some categories that make sense, just make them relevant for wildland firefighter families.
