Pack your bags, sell Petey the Parakeet to the neighbor kid, and leave a note for the gas man. We are hitting the road.
You may recall, back in the deep dark ages when we started this little project (aka October 2011) that my original goal was to spend a year prepping for the FDNY exam, whilst traveling around, visiting fire events, museums, memorials; and flirting with firemen.
Mission accomplished. The exam is passed (with flying colors, insert back pat here). I’ve visited fire folks in four different states and told you their stories; I’ve stood and wept in the spots where my heroes died; I’ve flirted shamelessly with men half my age; I’ve knocked small children to the ground for my turn on the fire truck. While I will always be a first responder advocate – I truly think it’s a calling for me – it’s time to refocus our blog effort before Kat’s on Fire ends up like the last season of The Office.
So, I’m moving! Our new blog is here. Same cast of characters – still Kat, still Thor, still The Boy, and still the same basic premise. I’ll still be writing about my travels, my love life, my job, my dating profile biz, and my wacky fire adventures. However, since I’m easing into my online business launch, the blog focus will be more on relationships and getting your life together…with the occasional fire event for good measure. Same Kat, different wrapper. I hope you enjoy it. Due to the blog’s nature, it will be much simpler to leave comments. Therefore, I hope you will give me your opinions, as it is well known throughout the blogosphere that my readers are amongst the most intellectual, well-cultured, kickass individuals in cyberspace.
I gotta admit – I feel a little misty-eyed and nostalgic at leaving my home. I choose, instead, to focus on the super-bubbly feeling of excitement, anticipation, and OH MY GAWD I CAN’T BELIEVE I’M ACTUALLY DOING IT. Your Kat loves you. I’ll see you on the other side.
(That’s my big wrap-up. Um, you’ll want to click on that link now.)
