Hello? Is Anyone Out There?

Remember me? Probably not. If you do, you must have figured I was abducted by aliens, or perhaps moved to a third-world country where I lost contact with the civilized world as we know it. But believe it or not, I gave up blogging to focus more on my writing. And I HAVE been writing. Just not as much as I had hoped to have finished. But I did manage to start many more writing projects;-) I'm very good at starting, but need to work on the finishing part. That's one of the reasons I've come back to my blog. Accountability. I'm going to pretend that my followers from my woe-be-gone days are still out there, hanging on my every word:-) 
But I'm not only challenging myself to finishing a number of my writing projects. I'm facing the challenge of going back to school at the ripe old age of 46. I start next week. I'm beginning the AHT (Animal Health Technologist, otherwise known as Vet Tech) online course through Olds College. Hopefully those Bio classes I took in University twenty five or so  a few years back, come in handy. Why did I take those Bio classes all those years ago? Because I wanted to work with animals, and that was the closest I could get to them at university. But now the wonderful opportunity to get the training I always wanted to is available to me in a very accommodating manner, and I'm jumping on it! I will be at the College for 6 weeks this summer for labs and some hands-on training, then continue the remainder of the fall semester online. Very convenient, considering I'm still working the farm. (Did I mention I wanted to work with animals SO BAD that I married a farmer? I'm sure there were a couple more reasons...)
AND, if that isn't enough, I'm also going through The Artist's Way  twelve-week program yet again. I'm feeling separated from my creative self, therefore I feel compelled to recharge the battery. Julia Cameron's Artist's Way has helped in the past. You are welcome to join me, just follow the link. I will post on my weekly Artist Dates, which are basically play dates with my inner child. Let's see what kind of trouble that little brat can get into!
Have you had any long-time dreams/bucket list items that you still feel the need to pursue?
