Blauer Blitz 8" Waterproof Tactical Boots – Review

Entry Img

When I was initially contacted with the opportunity to wear test a pair of Blauer tactical boots I was skeptical. Blauer makes boots? Blauer makes boots with no laces? Blauer makes boots with no laces and no side zipper??? I wondered if they would be as comfortable as my current boots.  I wondered if the […]


“How’s the weather outside?”   We were packed into the elevator like sardines.  Myself, Blue Eyes, the bariatric stretcher and two Nurses. Blue Eyes and I answered simultaneously.  He told them that it was beautiful.  “Sunny and warm.”  I told them that it was miserable outside and to be happy that they were stuck indoors on […]

The Perfect Ending to an Imperfect Day.

I still revert into a five-year-old hopped up on sugar every time I get to watch this…. It didn’t make up for the fact that I missed my little guy playing the theme to Star Wars like a champ with the rest of the band, but it made the situation hurt a little less.

A Year Not Wasted.

Today it will have been an entire year since I’ve posted.  A year.  365 days. It’s mind boggling to me.  This used to be my safe place.  I’ve shared so much of my life on here.  I have to wonder what happened to shut me down.  There’s been so much I’ve wanted to share, and yet…  I feel […]

Dear Mom…

Today is the one day this year that is specifically set aside to honor you.  Every day I honor you, actually.  You’ve been the single constant in my life.  You fought like hell when Brent and I were little ones with no help to keep us under a dry roof, in a good school, and safe.  I can’t imagine […]


The local news is running a story on where the general public can dispose of their unused medications. What I’d like to know is where the ambulance service I work for can get morphine.  And a few other important meds that we typically carry. Anyone else suffering along with me?

For Little Red

  I can remember the exact moment that I knew I needed to work in EMS.  The precise moment.  The moment that my son was choking in front of me.  The moment that I realized I had no idea how to help him.  The fire fighters that came to Nick’s rescue inspired me with their […]

One of my favorite EMS blogs on the internet belongs to Lt. Michael Morse of Providence, RI Fire Department.  From the very beginning and to this day whenever I read one of his posts I feel like I could have been a third partner on the scene, right there with him.  You start to believe that you’re […]

That's My Boy.

There’s a boy in that picture.  Well, there’s a few of them, actually, but the one I’m talking about is wearing a green shirt that looks like it doesn’t quite fit him.  He looks like he might be either a few steps ahead, or a few steps behind the other kids on stage.  He looks like he’s […]

At Last

“Mooooom! Mooom! MOM! MOOOOM!”  SWR came running down the stairs to my office, almost a bit faster than her little feet could take her.  I was sitting at my desk playing around on Twitter and in general just enjoying my last off day before a marathon five day run of work at three different places.

Rebecca, thanks for the comment! Maybe I can have one of my coworkers write a review of their boots, I work with a few girls with tiny feet who are pretty happy with their boots.
