For the next two days I’m taking a Tactical EMS class. I’m guessing that I’m the only one who actually has active shooter experience.
The temperature in the morning these days is a brisk 50 degrees. At some point I’m going to have to start wearing a coat to work. *sigh* So cold! We should go back to last week when I got sunburned at Epcot.
In Conflict Resolution class I’m learning that I was never taught how to resolve conflict. I can drive toward the scene of an active shooter but I can’t stand up for my opinions and feelings. More on this at a later date…
I’m going to be home on Halloween. Last year I was sick so I ignored the single knock at my door. This year I do not intend to be sick so I purchased some candy. I would like to say that I purchased some non-candy, healthy or educational item to hand out. But since I don’t know how many children will come to my door, I bought chocolate. I’m going to be so sad if I don’t get to hand any of it out to costume-clad children. Right.
I’ve set up a new schoolwork zone. I do the majority of my work lounging on my bedroom floor. I think my productivity has increased. Also, I can navigate through some menus with my toes. Touch screens are awesome.
Elections are next week. I have no idea who will be getting my vote. Also, I get to vote on medical marijuana. Again, no clue. There is this thing called research that I’m should be doing. Have I ever mentioned how much I don’t like research? I think my curiosity bone is broken.
My audio book for the next few weeks is Insurgent. That is book number two of the Divergent series. I’m in love with these books. Also, Four.
Listening to fiction on my work commute causes consternation at the end of the trip. I’ve considered switching to non-fiction, but that usually causes fatigue during the trip. I think end of trip anxiety is better than mid-trip nodding off.
By the end of the week I will (hopefully) have four complete sets of uniforms. This means no longer doing laundry every four days. I find happiness in the smallest of things…
Sunday I made a large pot of chicken rice soup. Now my freezer is full of soup instead of broth. Also, I really do rock at making chicken soup.
I have five days in a row off next week. This is because one of my coworkers and I did a swap so she could go to an OB class. Someone wanted me to go. Those of you who know me, understand that OB is not one of my weaknesses. I’ll take the five day break thankyouverymuch.
I’m using this randomness post to procrastinate on the three posts that I have running through my head right now. If you are really lucky, one of them might show up this week.
