carpe diem fugo: Seize the Fire

The opening session of the new Mandatory Firefighter certification class went well. In addition to the two students I knew would be there, two rookies from a neighboring fire department (Kendallville) and an unexpected addition to our department showed, so I had to rush to get some student manual pages copied. I did that gladly, though -- if we're having a class anyway, might as well have a full one.

Of the three from Albion, two are the son and daughter of current firefighters and the third is an ex-marine, so I expect the best from them.

The only problem I encountered, other than being rusty from not having taught for awhile, was a sore throat from a combination of sinus drainage and talking for three hours.

On a related note, please ignore any emo ramblings that may come out from now until, say, March. I've been suffering terrible sinus headaches for a few days and my seasonal affected disorder came to visit early and promised to stay through the holidays, so I'm on a hatred of life bandwagon right now. Emily will be here toward mid-December for her Christmas break, which will cheer me considerably. Hearing back from one of the #^@$&*!! publishers I sent manuscripts to would help, too.

Make Andy Serkis' Gollum juice! Special brew of honey, lemon and ginger and you'll be all better =)

I have the honey and lemon -- might have to go on a long trek for the ginger. :-)

The anti-snow vibes are most needed! For now, anyway.

Yep...sinus season! I love the autumn, but lately my sinus are making life hell too...on top of everything else. I'm lucky to have no sore throat yet though *fingers crossed*

Hope the misery passes quickly!

I don't see the misery passing before March! I would like autumn, if it would just stay warm ....
