In one week, my life is going to get chaotic. School is starting on the 23rd, and I have to say, I’m starting to doubt my sanity. Now that I have the syllabi for both of my classes, I have this to say: AHHHHHHH! This is going to be so much work. I cannot even express how much I wish I could take these classes on-campus. I have a nagging feeling that these online courses are going to kick my butt pretty hard. I am a visual learner. I like to see my professors, take notes, have things tangibly in-hand. I think it’s going to be a real struggle for me to do this online-only learning thing. Let’s hope I don’t fail miserably!!
In addition to me taking on school, Trevor only has THREE weeks left of fire training!! WOO HOO! To say that fire training has been stressful would be the understatement of, oh, the century. I miss my nice husband!! Poor guy has been so stressed out, but at least now, the end is in sight and he’s feeling a lot of excitement. Their humongous cumulative “Firefighter II” test was last week, and he passed, so that was a big relief for both of us. They save the math-intensive pump operation information for the last week, of course, so hopefully Trevor will prove to be much better at math than his wife! He did get his permit for driving the fire truck last week, which is exciting, because men love to drive big vehicles, in case you didn’t know. His graduation is set for September 2, and I am very excited that 1) that means fire school is over and 2) Knox and I get to “pin” Trevor. They allow the firefighters to pick who pins their fireman badge on them at graduation, so Trevor wants me to bring up Knox for him to hold while I pin him. I think that’s going to be such a special moment. Now, I need to find a really cute firetruck/ fireman outfit for Knox to wear!
Oh, and one more random thing: I helped move my baby sister into her dorm on Friday. That’s just not right. And yes, I bought her pepper spray for her keychain. Because that’s what good sisters do.
