The Carr Fire was 145,015 acres, and 41% contained according to the last numbers from yesterday. I’m still wearing a mask outside, but besides that, I do not feel immediately threatened anymore. The fire have been moving towards the west side for about a week. There’s no longer any fire close to me. My bags are still packed, and I am ready to go if the wind changes.
How is your weekend so far? I went to school all day yesterday, and updated my Pediatric CPR and First Aid Certificate (AED education included.) It was a few years ago since I did it last time, and I like to have something that important fresh in my mind. When seconds matters to save a life, you can’t afford to hesitate. In the state of California there’s no law requiring a teacher to have CPR and First Aid Education! I think that is insane!! I could not imagine not having it. It was a great class, with wonderful teachers. I’d say that it was better than the last time I took it, at a different location.
There are a lot of things you don’t control in the world. But one thing you always do: you can change your perspective to how you can solve problems and add value for others. Because then your prosperity is assured. (I don’t know who said this, but I read it at some point, and saved it in my “inspiration file”, and found it this morning.)
My daughter have recently expressed a desire to spend more time with her dad, and start school there. It has not been an option for her until now (she’s always lived with me.) I am raising a strong daughter, and I want to support her in any way I can. In reality it’s going to mean some major changes for me. Since her dad lives 11 hours away, close to Las Vegas. It’s a lot going on right now. I’ve been meditating over a solution to this for the past weeks. Without much success, until last night, when I realized that I’m going to have to relocate closer, to be able to have a close relationship with her. It’s the only option. I love my life, but I am pretty open minded, and I can be happy anywhere (as long as I get to spend a lot of time outdoors!) I can see myself being very happy working with children again, or in the countryside helping someone with their animals/ horses. I’m going to see what doors the universe is going to open for me. I don’t know exactly what the next few weeks are going to have in store for me, I do know that in the end something good is going to come out of it. I know my priorities. I have many things that I love, and are very happy spending my time doing. I got that going for me 😉
I am going to have to find new homes for my two horses. It’s not realistic to bring them. Even though I would of loved to. I am definitely bringing my best friend Gretchen.
A short post to let my friends, and family now that I’m doing good. Have a wonderful Sunday!
