I'm Trained!

This last week, I spend all my evenings and my whole Saturday training to be a first responder in the case of a disaster. I am now apart of the CERT team. CERT is Community Emergency Response Team. It's exciting and scary all at once. Most of the stuff we learned was good for even just our homes. Like turning off the gas and electricity, fire extinguisher instructions, fire safety, sheltering in place, and first aid. Other things like Triaging, setting up a treatment area, and disaster psychology will lend more to an actually disaster. But in either case, I feel this class would benefit every family. So yea, I am recommending you all go out and get trained! There should be a class in almost every major county so give your county a call.

Our dog, Pacman, died today.

He was a good, good dog. He followed me where ever I went and always was so good to the kids. As we were driving to the Library today, we had the windows down because it was such a nice day. He always loved to sit in the passenger seat. And for some unknown reason he decided to jump out the window. Maybe he thought he saw something he wanted? As soon as he jumped, he was ran over my another car.
We are greatly devistated and he will be sorely missed.
There will not be posts for a few weeks as our family takes time to morn.

Rest in Peace Pacman.
