I'm baaaaack!

Ok I was on vacation from blogging.  Ok seriously, I was swamped with life!  I finished school and received my license as a paramedic.  You would think I would have taken the summer of.  Well, you thought wrong!  This girly took the state firefighter 1 certification over the summer.  It was a grueling 3 nights a week in the heat with 60-70 lbs of gear on...yea last thing I wanted to do at 10pm after class was blog.  I just wanted a shower.
So, now that I have technical degrees in both paramedic and firefighter 1 you would think I would be silly!  I'm a glutton for punishment.  I'm now seeking my associates of applied science-paramedic.  I am taking it easy though, only 10 credits this semester =)
I will be revamping and changing around some things, but don't worry all the great projects, recipes, and stories will be back soon!
