Last year, I took a blogging class at Shimelle.com with ladies from all over the world. I still read Allison's blog, and she participates in Storytelling Sundays on Sian's blog. I was just thinking about how blogging has helped me to enjoy writing more. This seems like a good time to jump in, and it is still Sunday here in California.
Alex wants to be a Firefighter
Alex and I stopped at the FedEx store on Friday to fax documents for the sale of our house in Texas. We talked about how people worked there and at the surrounding stores. I started telling him about all of the different jobs that I could think of in that moment. "Daddy works on computers." You can drive a truck or a cab." We moved onto firefighters, which Alex really likes right now. He goes around saying, "Firefighters to the rescue!" By the end of our conversation, he decided that he wants to be a firefighter. This is his first interest in a profession, and I am sure that it will evolve over time. Growing up, I remember wanting to be an astronaut, teacher, writer, doctor, psychologist, and then back to teacher. (I may still have time to be some of those things.) I certainly did not grow up planning to become an academic advisor.
