Where's Pettycoat Junction?
Hi Keiko!
How was your wkend? I had a pretty good one! I went to the Cities Fri and took Christian (BF) on a tour of my old job! Yes, you're right, it took an AWESOME job for me to move! I went to school for Veterinary Technology. To graduate you have to do an internship and rotations at the vet school. The vet school was very cool and I had a work study job in the small animal ICU, just cleaning and stocking. Come to find out when you work 75% the U pays your tuition and since I wanted to go to vet school... well, it was a no brainer:) Anyhow, ICU was my last rotation and I kept talking about working at the U and on our last day, as we were cleaning out our lockers, Vickie (ICU sup.) came and found me and told me she needed to see me before I left. I was nervous thinking uh-oh did I do something? And she offered me a job in ICU!! I couldn't believe it! Especially since I hadn't graduated or even passed my certification yet!! So I worked there for just shy of 3 years while taking my gen ed classes. But it got to be too much so back to the farm I went!! I still miss that job. It was just like a people ICU but with cats and dogs! It was great going back but there were only a couple people there that I knew. After that we went to the "great MN get together," the MN state fair. The U is literally next door to the fair grounds. The fair was good but the best part was seeing Allison there! I worked with her at the U and haven't seen her since I left 5 yrs ago. There are THOUSANDS of people there and we found each other! Pretty cool! Allison is a true city girl though. She is interested when I talk about farming but she's never experienced anything like that. She doesn't understand that I don't live in a town even though my address has a town so she decided that I must live at Pettycoat Junction;) Yea I really miss that job, but not the life I had there. Part of that is my own fault cuz I was working graveyard and trying to go to class after work-Not a good idea!! Sometimes I had a hour after work/before class and I would take a nap in my car, wake up when class was done, pay for parking and go home. Not real condusive for learning. That was Chemistry that I did that for. I guess I burned myself out:(
My cousin teaches english to little kids in Arizona. (She is nothing like her mother, very VERY sweet girl) She talks about teaching them about winter and trying to explain snow. About January I offer to send a truck load or 2;) That had to be rewarding, like you said, they WANT to be there. I would've loved to have been a teacher but kids were monsters when I was in school and I know they're getting worst!! Not all of them of course but enough.
So, when do you get the cow? Or are you waiting for your son's Bday?
Good night!
