Overtime

Sorry I haven't been real current with the writing lately. We are slammed with OT at work. We have several people on vacation and as it stands we were already down 2 medics and a basic. So basically we are down 5 people. That means one HELL OF A LOT OF OT for the rest of us.

Now, don't get me wrong. In emergency services, most of us like to hover around the 70 hour mark, but 90-100 hours a week is a bit draining.

I put a pool up for the kidos today. Me and a couple buddies spent the better part of 4 hours leveling the ground where it sits. Put the pool up to find out it leans. Crap. Time to drain 2000 gallons of water out and re-level. Poor children might be able to swim by the middle of August.

Playing very little paintball lately, I either cant find the time to play or I can't find the players. So much for shooting your buddy.

Been screwing around with Sony Vegas and Micro(shaft) Movie Maker. I'm toying with the idea of making a realistic video clip about EMS.. Only problem is I have to find enough footage that doesn't infringe on any copyright. If anyone out there has a stock of pics or vids that they wouldn't mind seeing in a video lemme know.

Been teaching a bit lately. Just got done doing a 2 day WMD class for the IAFF. It went ok, could have been better. I just don't understand people sometimes, you give them FREE training and they want to bitch. I got several complaints that the class was too long, then I got several complaints that there was too much information for a class so short. Geees.

Oh well, back to the back yard. I got a pool to wrestle with and kids that at least appreciate me.
