Hmm how do I say this without sounding wimpy

I have been a volunteer fire fighter/EMT for fifteen years. Love the station I am at and I even get along with a majority of the career fire fighters. I say that since there are very few volunteers at my station, and at this moment I think I am the last "running" volunteer. My issue is that the volunteer corporation (name witheld so I won't embarrass them) has decided to sell my volunteer station.

My first entry

Doesn't this just look like trouble?? I have worked my tail off for the last 3 years trying to start a new career and get back on my feet. Finally in June I took and passed (Woo Hoo) my Paramedic state exam. As a reward to myself for all my hard work, my sister and I took our 5 kids to DC for my birthday last weekend. We had a great time!! I think the kids were all ready to get home though. They didn't realize their mom's…

I'm a KATRINA victim/survivor/responder, and am slowly rebuilding my life and my home, as well as dealing with the psychobabble shit that came with it... nightmares, short temperedness, a propensity to get the shakes in a bad thunderstorm... I'm rold it's PTSD.

Firehouse Expo 2007

OK, so we didn't blog in Balto. To be quite honest, we had no time. We stayed pretty busy with everyone stopping by the booth all three days. It was great seeing all of our old friends again and making many (MANY) new one's. Thanks to everyone who stopped by to say Hi!

Special thanks to WebChief for stopping by, as well as our buds from 911Webs who sponsored a kick-ass party at the Baja Beach Club. Some of the boys are still recovering (mentally,…
