This has been my first REAL day off in a while. I almost forgot what it is like to just rest and not be in work mode. While my to-do list sits here, I really have no intention of making it happen. But, that’s a good thing for right now.
Cameron took his Heartland Fire Reserve Program test today. I texted him about 11:30 to ask how it went. He said he got a 64% and you need a 75% to pass. I couldn’t believe it because of all the studying he has done. Seconds later, he sent me this:
That stinker! I knew he could do it. Tomorrow he will take the Agility test. I know he’ll do well on that. Extra prayers couldn’t hurt! Once he passes this test, then it’s on to the Interview Board. I think Cameron is most nervous about this part than any of the other. If he gets accepted, then he’ll have an awesome chance of being put through the Fire Academy and then next year Medic School. We pretty much told him that the next 3 years of his life are crucial for his career.
Zach is doing well. I still know he misses home a lot. Sometimes in life the path we choose at the time isn’t what’s really best for us. Zach is head strong and there was no keeping him from joining the Army. Although he loves being a combat medic, I think he misses home more.
I’m doing something different that I started about a month ago. I’m reading the Bible in a year chronologically. It’s quite interesting how I skipped from Genesis to Job. There sure is a lot to learn from Job. He was so in-depth. And, you would think reading Genesis would be quite boring. Not so for me. I dug out my Dake’s Study Bible and just really started digging through scripture and it had new meaning to me. I had totally forgotten about the world before the earth was formed. The days in which Satan ruled as an angel. I had forgotten about the giants too. The downside to reading the Bible in a year is I want to stop and study the scripture but there’s not enough time to do it in my timing. You have to read so many chapters a day. But what I’m gathering from it is still PRICELESS!
Welp, I better go. I have NOTHING to do, NOWHERE to go and my TO DO list…well…..it can just sit here and eyeball me because I’m taking the day off!!!

Gosh, another month or so and it would be a year since I wrote here. A lot has happened in a year. I’m not sure where to begin. Olivia got her permit recently and I have reluctantly not let her drive yet. She enters the 11th grade this year and it’s hard to believe my youngest only has two more years of highschool and 3 more church camps left. ((WHAAA)) She’s grown into such a wonderful Godly woman!
Cameron received his EMT certificate in January and got a job with Balboa Ambulance. His goal is to get into the Reserves with Heartland soon, then paramedic school. It would be Rich’s dream if Cameron eventually got to work a few years with his Dad at the Fire Department. I’m sure he will get there! He’s a natural at all this medical stuff.

Gosh, all week I have been sick with what I think to be the flu. Headache, sore throat, fever. It was awful. This was the first week I think I have ever called in sick to work. It was really hard to stay away because I’m the only one in the office and I have so much to do all the time. My MIL ended up helping me so that was nice.
Talked to Zach last night. He’s been camping in the Colorado mountains on his days off and working 12 hour shifts in the ER at a hospital there quite a few days a week. He’s loving it and even got to put in his first chest tube last week. I can tell he’s missing home a lot. But that’s what comes with being in the military. Hopefully he’ll be home in December for a visit. We hope so.
The HOT weather has returned once again and will be lingering here this week. I am so done with the hot weather although we haven’t had as near as many days as my mom in Texas has. I guess I shouldn’t complain, but we don’t have air conditioning here. Makes me miss my old house where I could turn it on if I wanted to. Some how, some way, I’m going to get air in this house if it’s the last thing I do.
I was going to head off to church this morning, but my nasty ole sore throat came back and I’m coughing and feel awful. I don’t want to be coughing every time I turn around in church. Thank goodness for my T.V. preachers that I get a good sermon when I need.
I think Rich is at work. He’s been working so much and I miss him a lot. He was on the Campo fire last week and thankfully did not lose his life, but the story he told me, he certainly could have for sure. Scary sometimes. People, their job is so dangerous. What a HERO in my book. Love you babe!
Hope everyone has a great day!
