New Thing #77: Clear!

I can now officially save your life! I signed up for this a couple of months ago, and today along with Kevin I earned certification in CPR. I've always wanted to do this, and when I was in 5th grade, I took a 'babysitters' preparedness' class that taught CPR and other skills, but because of my age I couldn't get certified. Plus, in the 19 years that have passed, I've gotten pretty rusty, so a class seemed in order. Today's class covered how to assess an emergency, checking for 'signs of life,' Heimlich (though they don't call it that) for a conscious and unconscious adult, CPR and AED (automatic external defibrillator- CLEAR!). Kevin and I both rocked the multiple choice test at the end, and now are card-carrying life-savers.
