Report From Ladder Company 40 -Day 44

Hi Team!

I'm posting early hoping to get to bed at a decent time.

Today I drank my two quarts of fluid and I had a day of rest. I only logged 2,334 steps on Pete, but I did go to sunday school, church services and quiz practice so that involved a lot of sitting. I slept pretty well for the few hours I got last night. I woke up around 4:30 when my family was getting ready to leave for a day of hunting. I couldn't go back to sleep and I had been up late so I was pretty gosh darned tired today and had a hard time staying awake at church.

I am feeling more and more like pushing myself to reach for the highest dreams. Even my mom is encouraging me to go all the way for it now. Once I finish EMT school, work for a year, obtain paramedic courses and become a paramedic I want to go through the fire academy. We'll see if I am still saying that when the time comes, but if I'm gonna live the dream I should do it all the way! If I don't try I will never know!

Short and sweet so I can finish up other things before bed!

Stay safe!

Report From Ladder Company 40 -Day 43

Hi Team!

I conked out before posting yesterday (Saturday) so here I am bright and early to catch up.

Day 43 was a good day. I slept very well with 7 1/2 hours of sleep time. I drank almost 3 quarts of fluids and Pete tells me I walked 14,211 steps.
I would say all in all that was a good day, don't you think so?!

Today I also attended the Fall Fun Days, sponsored by the University Place Fire Department. THis is an event they do annually for kids. While I didn't have any kids to take with me, I did manage to find a few to go with. My assistant's roommate has two kids and we took them. And I didn't "dork" out with an attack of the shy's! I carried on almost a 10 minute conversation with a firefighter about their ladder truck and the new trucks Tacoma is getting. Thanks to the Firebuffs, I knew something about what I was talking about! I was able to tell the firefighter things he didn't know and the conversation was easy. YAY ME!

Well, that's about all I have for now. Thanks to all of you who continue to support me in this dream! The support I have been getting from all of you has been amazing! I am SO blessed.

Until later,

Stay SAFE!
