Hi! I am so glad you found my blog! I started Too Hot to Handle as a way to handle the fact that my husband's (family's) transition from elementary school teacher to professional firefighter was a rougher road than I prepared myself to deal with. But, this was his dream and I have decided to support him no matter what as he makes his journey though it. I needed an outlet and my blog started as a quasi-journal. I have been lucky to make so many connections with other fire wives and made a few friends along the way.
My husband and I met in college and starting dating after a "choir tour romance" - there was at least one every year. We have been married for 13 years and have 4 kids. I am a high school theology teacher/department chair/technology go to person at work. We are fans of big dogs. We have 3 in our pack right now, an old lady golden and two beautiful great pyrenees. These guys are my companions when my hubby is pulling 48s.
Sometimes our crazy life is difficult to balance and I feel more like a circus clown learning to juggle than a professional and mom. Ah well, the proverbial nothing worth having comes easy applies here.
