I basically had a day off today. They marched 10 of us into some Red Cross First Aid class for 8 hours today. Not that I'm taking it lightly, of course. Learnt some good stuff, and I got a nice little book to take home (First Aid: The Vital Link, Second Edition). It's some pretty cool stuff. I took CPR and first aid way back in high school, so it wasn't entirely alien to me, but obviously I'd forgotten a lot of details. If I had been in a car accident a week ago and I'd have happened on the scene first, I wouldn't have been too optimistic to see me, really. Now, I'm not so worried. This training might come in handy during ministry too, since I work the youth shift. I don't know why I would think youths have a higher rate of dropping unconcious than, say, the elderly. But folks trust us with their kids/teens all night, so I guess we'd bloody well be as capable as possible if something does
Also, the House of Stairs is filling vacancies.
Needs work, obviously, but I'm happy with how it's progressing.
