Day 344: Break time

I get to fight fires for one more week before my season ends.

I went back to work today to finish up a few things to make things easier for our staff this week since I’m not coming back to work this week. It wasn’t that much, but I got it done, and it should be easier for them while I’m gone. I talked to both the Principal and the Superintendent about taking this next week off, and after some head shaking and finger wagging, they allowed me to fight fires for one more week. I’m glad, too, because I really want to go back there with my crew and fight all these fires. It’s so much fun.

I’m still writing this in Day One because I really like to. Yeah, this whole blog idea, although a good idea at the time, was not really a good idea in the vast scheme of things. I’m drunk right now, and I drove home drunk, and that wasn’t a good idea. I made it home safely, but I’m exhausted and tired and all I want to do is go to bed.

I’m going to bed.

I go back to work tomorrow at 6 AM. More fires to fight. Wish me luck.


year one
