This week

This week has not been my week. First, last Wednesday I was double gloved and had a drill bit go thought them almost piercing my finger. This week I have been sick yesterday I could not scrub in and stayed home and today I had to steep back out of the surgery because I got very dizzy. A big part of that is because I have really had anything to yesterday or this morning. This afternoon I got to scrub in on a hip replacement, that is something I have not seen yet so that was neat to see how a hip replacement is done. Got to go to work now.

I start going to the hospitals tomorrow I am going from scared to death to getting excited!!! Yesterday and this morning I was thinking what did I get myself into and did not know if I was going to be able to handle it. Now I am ready to go, I don't know if I will feel the same way in the morning but I am ready right now : ).

Josh and I had a good afternoon out by the wildlife refuge it was a nice time just to relax after a long week with school and work. We go to pet a zonkey, horse, and miniature donkeys. On top of having fun with the animal we also got to see a great view. Josh was making fun of me because we heard something and the grass moving, so I ran to catch with him, he says it was a rat but I am not so sure about that and I did not want to find out. The only horse we go to pet was a bully he keep scaring the other animals away because he wanted us all to himself. There are more pics on Flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/joshanderininlawton/!

Things happening with school

I have an instrument test today and got my first 100!!!!!! I also found out that Monday we will be going back to the OR to watch but we get to scrub in and will most likely be in a room with out another classmate like we have done the other times. Hopefully work will be slow on Halloween because I have to work and be at a fundraiser for school. If work is slow I will be able to get off and not be to late to the fundraiser. - Jalapeno hehe

WOW

It has already been 2 weeks since the last time we posted! Hmmm, Oh well. It been a pretty boring few weeks as far as I can remember. Kelly just purchased 10 gorgeous acres next to the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge today at an auction. Yesterday, we went out to look at the land and we just stood back and got to see all kinds of great things, there were over a dozen elk, many turkey,and even a llama. I'm happy he bought it, I can enjoy it and don't even have to pay for it. He and I had alot of work ahead of us. I think we are in double digits as far as projects go, poop!
I have been working on getting a little less obsessed with real estate(I know that's gotta drive Erin insane, sorry Jalapeno : ) So tomorrow instead of just looking at real estate, Kelly and I going to an airshow in Wichita Falls then we are going to look at some Texas real estate! HEHE, funny thing about hanging out with Kelly is everywhere we go people think he is my father. In Lawton at the Burgess Grill the waitress will ask if my dads(tea) is coming or girlfriend(water) is coming, I have even told her hes not my dad but I don't think she believes me.
Well I am headed to bed, I will take mucho pictures tomorrow of the airplanes and maybe even a non-fatal plane crash ; ) Night yall.

ITS ALMOST THE WEEKEND!

I can't believe its already almost the weekend. I have had a really good week, some of my favorite things happened! First, its the 1st of the month so I get to collect rent. YAY! Second, the Oklahoma Tax Lien Certificate sale was this Monday-Wednesday so I was able to purchase 9 liens on properties(unfortunately, I spent all the rent money and then some). Additionally, I was able to get a free copy of the AutoCAD program yesterday. This program is one of the more challenging things I have ever attempted, my little brain has a hard time understanding all the functions. However, I have been able to draw up initial building site plans and basic floor plans. I am going to take a class on CAD next semester but I hope to learn the majority of it by myself before then. I guess I will just wait and see. Goodnight yall - Joshua

A nice day

Today was a good day, work was not that bad. When i got off we went to dinner at Buffalo Wild Wings then came home and just got to relax. It was nice.

Well Poop!

Talked to the fella over on Cherry. I made him an offer he just "couldn't refuse". Turns out the he was more attached to those OU tickets than I thought. HEHE. EZ COME EZ GO. If he really NEEDS to sell he will call me back. Tomorrow, I have a deal in Fletcher to work out and one on Smith, definately no shortage of motivated sellers.


Rewind to this afternoon. When I was headed down to walk Kelly called and was like hey how quick can you get over to Dearborn. I headed over, he had me kinda nervous but not too bad, whats the worst that could be wrong with a vacant lot. This morning the surveyor went out to find the lot lines and get ready to build a townhouse project(I'll post a pic). Ok so no big deal till I drive up and I start to see the surveyors flags and they just keep going and going into the neighbors parking lot about 20'. WWEELLL that wouldnt be to bad but we need about 28'x37' and our usable lot was about 27'x45'. Now depending on what the city determines the requirement is for the set back on that side we may be demolishing a portion of the neighbors parking lot or cutting a few feet off the back of this plan. Here it is: 3bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1 car garage, Rent approx. $1000.


I guess I called it a great day a little early. 2 minor setbacks with the amount of things we are doing right now is more like an incredibly great day. : ) - Joshua

So its another nice day down here in SW Oklahoma. This afternoon I was at Elmer Thomas Park just strolling around like normal when out of the side of my eye I saw a small house sitting in the middle of the east side of the park, I know that hasn't been there before. Peeking around every corner of the house was well, check it out.




A BIIIIGGG TRUCK! Turns out from the other side its a house peeking around a truck!

It appears they are having some kind of performance tonight at Elmer Thomas. Anyhoo, I have been working a deal most of the day over on Cherry. Hopefully, I will be able to work something out. I'm hoping to get some OU football tickets outta the deal that should be fun. -Joshua

What a Great Day!

I worked this afternoon at the office(1-6pm). BORING! Earlier in the day, Kelly and I decided officially on the name of our real estate investment company - Park Avenue Associates LLC. Sounds professional, huh? Hopefully, we will soon purchase a property to remodel.
In other news, I was hoping the deed for the property I purchased in Wichita Falls would be here today so I can head back down there to file it and find out just exactly what I bought. Unfortunately, Its not here. Maybe tomorrow. - Joshua

FIRST DAY IN THE OR

I had my first day in the OR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was not much fun cause I did not get to do anything but stand way in the back and watch the back of the surgeon. I did not get to see what was going on. Nov. 29th is the next time I will be in the OR. I will be the ST then. -Erin
