I thought I would take a few min to tell you about myself and family.
I have been married 13 wonderful, crazy, emotional years to my best friend. Alan is a hard working man whom I admire probably more than he will ever know. He and I have had our moments of rough waters but we have been able to work together to get back on track. He is a full time fire fighter so his schedule is crazy. He is 24hrs on and 48hrs off. When he is not at the fire department he works for a shuttle company taking people to and from the airport or military base. He was married once before and has a son from his previous marriage.
Jake is Alan's son, who is now 19 and going to college to be a chief. He has recently moved out and we are becoming "THOSE" parents who are worried. Is he going to school? Is he going to work? Is he going to be able to pay his bills? What was his mother thinking by moving him out so soon? Oh yea we already know the answer to that questions...thats left for another day.
Together Alan and I have 2 beautiful daughters. Cecilia "CC" is 12. She will be 13 in less than a month and thinks she is going to get a facebook, but I'm not ready for that yet. CC is my fun loving, silly girl. She has her own style and ideas for things. Then we have Emily. Emily is 11, and has a HUGE heart. She is kind & giving and would give up everything she has to make someone happy, however she also has HUGE attitude to go along with her heart. The rolling of the eyes, and heavy sighing.
We also have 3 dogs, Molly (terrier), Tucker (lab), & Scout (huskey/shepard) 1 cat, Timmy. 2 hens and 1 rooster and a pond of fish.
While the family sleeps I am at work. I work the 3rd shift at the police department as a 911 dispatcher. Sometimes we are CRAZY busy and sometimes (like tonight) we are not. We handle calls for the Amb, fire, & police. Once Im off work I go home get everyone off to work and school and go to bed. This way I'm up when everyone comes home so I can spend time w/ them.
