Class of '85 and other rambles

I have just returned from my 25 year High School Reunion!  What a blast......
I was a little apprehensive at first but, once I got there and started talking to everyone that all faded away.  It's hard to believe that it has been 25 years since we walked the halls of Jefferson High School.  We made friendships the lasted only during the time we were in classes together and some that have endured the test of time.
During those High School years you can't imagine your life without the familiar faces we saw every day, and now 25 years later, you recognize a face but, can't for the life of you remember the name.  At the beginning of the night I think a lot of us walked around looking at name tags or asking others "Who is that person over there?"
Either way we got over the initial insecurities and had fun.  That's what it's all about.  Right?

Now back to the road,
We have left Kaitlynn at Grandma and Grandpa's house this time out.  She will be starting Kindergarten in August and is so looking forward to it.
Herb and I are going to run hard for the next 3 weeks then I will be home for a couple of weeks to get Kaitlynn set up and started in school.
She will be attending a school that has a required dress code.  I'm not sure how that is going to play out but, I rather like the idea.  If nothing more that not having to argue about what she wears to school.  You have these shirts, these bottoms and these sweaters/sweat-shirts. Pick an outfit.  Makes mornings easy for Grandma.
Yep, she will be spending the school year with the Grandparents, this way Herb and I can run hard and get ahead.  The plan is by May of next year to be back in the area and start looking for a house.
I want to look for a job in the EMS field and maybe work in one of the local ER's.  I want to be able to use my skills and I believe that I will be more effective and useful in an ER setting than on the Ambulance, I'll leave that to the adrenalin junkies out there.  Although it is not out of the question, I will work where ever there is a place for me.
