Okay, one more for the year

I have already started moving forward with my plans for the New Year. I have enrolled in an online course for 'Practical Skills' for veterinary assistants. AND, I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of a couple books on the same subject. Class starts January 20 and basically lessons are released every Wednesday and Friday for 6 weeks. I am excited to take this class because, even though it's an online course, working in a vet hospital will allow me to ask my co-workers if I'm confused or need a real life demonstration.
I also am planning on starting a fun project with my sister this spring. I have no idea how it's going to work out, but I think it will be a blast. My father bought her a '67 Barracuda that they started fixing. My brother go involved and money probably ran out and any number of crazy family things could've happened...whatever it was, the car has sat and Dad has tried selling it. Now, with my fathers deteriorating health, he is in a wheelchair and has had a ramp built out his side has blocked the car into the back yard. I, with my extra time to think about how to spend my time, had the idea to work with my sister to fix the car. Of course it will take some time due to timing...around work and other obligations. But she also said there are just a few minor things that need fixing. Oh, and money will be a bit of an issue...we will only be able to do what we can when we have the money. Especially since it needs 4 new tires, among the other bits.
It looks like this, except 'ours' is black and not so shiny, YET.

So stayed tuned...I may even start a separate blog to chronicle the car adventure. We shall see.


  1. Yea! for vet training!!! *^_^* You can do it! I didn't know that you and Steph are planning on fixing up the 'cuda. Good luck! You may want to invest in a tarp if you want to keep it "not so shiny." Happy New Year!

  2. Good luck with the online classes!! At least you have some people to go to for help.
    Would love to see how it goes with the car!!
    I hope you have an awesome 2010!
