The Adventures of Stinky Sweet:

Sometimes stinky. Sometimes sweet. But it's our life - and it is always good.

downhill side.

I'm finally on the downhill side with June and July are much quieter (with the exception of the BIG EVENT that was moved to July 14th). My nights are more free and every single weekend isn't booked (in fact, I think I only have to work one night next week!!). We spend the summers gearing up for the new GS year - renovating trainings, recruiting new volunteers, and for me, re-establishing my teams to function even better for the new school year. I am looking forward to working with some of the same volunteers and some new ones as well. I truly enjoy my job. There are some bad days (like yesterday, when I had to deal with an unpleasant volunteer situation) but mostly, they are busy and good.

Chad is teaching a lifeguarding class on the weekends right now so it is a little sad that my weekends are slowing down. And then he will be taking a class of his own at night and on the weekends through June. I sort of hate it that our schedules just don't match up like work is slow during his fire season when he is out all the time and busy again during the summers when I can be home more at night. Oh well - it will work out some day! :)

Upgraded to a new phone yesterday. Finally on a REAL smartphone (does a Blackberry really count??). I tried to load the Blogger app (so you know, you'd hear more from me!) but it will only let me link it to my work email address (which is a no-no) so I can't use it until I can figure all of that out.

Chad will have the computer and TV for this class again this weekend so I better start figuring out now how I am going to entertain myself. The house is still mostly clean from last weekend - cause we are never here, though those furry, hairy animals are so I WILL need to vacuum - so I can clean up a little and then maybe get a good chunk of crafting done!! Wow - I think I will go ahead and start looking forward to that.
