For as long as I can remember I have wanted to get my EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) certification. When I was younger I rode ambulance as a first responder/driver. But because of life I have never been able to obtain this dream of mine. Well I am so excited to say that April 29 I will begin classes to work toward this dream. I have all my books, stethoscope and uniform. I met with the ambulance chief and assistant chief last week. I have been accepted into the ambulance service pending a physical by my doctor.
If everything goes as planned I will be an EMT by the end of summer! I am anxious, excited and just plain ready for this next step in life. It is time for me to do something I have wanted to obtain in life. My husband and kids have been a huge encouragement to me. God has opened many doors with this and I plan on walking through them.
This Saturday we will be headed to the Maple Festival at the Genesee Country Village and Museum. So come back early next week for a post about our visit. There will be many pictures as I test out my new lens. I just love walking around the museum...but you all know that.
The kids are doing great. They are all reaching a milestone birthday this year that I am having a hard time with. Katrina will be 21, Hannah will be 18 and Andrew will be 16! They are no longer kids...they are all young adults. How in the world did this happen?
So last but not least, we have been clean eating for almost a month now. We both feel GREAT! We have stayed away from all processed foods...for the most part. We did splurge now and then. I can say . my doctor has been thrilled with my results. I have lost close to 20 pounds and my blood pressure is wonderful. In fact it has been so good that my doctor cut my meds in half. If I continue doing well she will take me off of it completely! So that is what we have been up to...how about you?!
