    Post gotta busy weekend!

    Whattcha all doin' this weekend? hope its fun! This weekend is the duck season opener in my state(Idaho), but I doubt I'll get a chance to get out there...I'm testing for the city of twin falls this weekend and they don't mess around!Friday the 13th is the written test(do you think they planned that on purpose?) upon passing this, saturday the 14th is physical fitness for duty test(no pre arranged cpat here they do it themselves, maybe they wanna watch or something). after the physical, the oral board interview is on sunday!Talk about a nerve racking weekend!I made it the CO interview last time I tested,but I'm feeling even less prepared than last time. seems the older I get ,the busier.I've been a paid on call firefighter for seven years and just can't seem to make the leap to full time. this will be the fifth time I've tested and its getting discouraging to come so close. I'm not getting any younger and the tests (mostly only the written exams)seem to be getting harder.Im thirty one and I feel like my time is running out.I don't want to move, but maybe I'll have to test everywhere? Whats the point of having your dream job if you can't live where you want?Anyway, wish me luck and have a fun weekend!

    Lightbulb gotta busy weekend!

    fieldseng2, is it me or is this your way of subtly bragging that youv'e already got a job at the firehouse? How 'bout some hints, how'd you get the job? how many times did you test to get it?are you working were you want to, or did you have to move?

    Its you...


    I see you're a guest on here...If you knew me......you would know I don't brag about anything....Quite the opposite....

    I was simply clarifying that I was working at the firehouse...not my part time gig...not on my in-laws farm...not around the house...or my yard.


    How did I get my job? Hardwork, determination, patience, and having a "never say die" attitude.

    I'm at my dream job. Got it on the 1st try. But, it took me 12 years to have the opportunity to try. However, I believe my experiences/education is what helped me get here.

    OK, when you mentioned "duck season" opening this weekend, I just flashed back to Bugs Bunny adn Daffy Ducks screaming "Wabbit Season" - "Duck Season" back and forth to each other in front of Elmer Fudd.

    Ok, I know I need some medications, but I was laughing.

    Well gonna be busy tonight (I hope) riding with the ambulance. Tomorrow is gonna be real busy for the entire County because it's Open House Day for all of us. So I suspect that tonight, unless we are busy running calls with actually be Station Clean Up and Vehicle Maintenance Night.
