Man o man, it has been quite some time since I have visited, little own updated my blog. I feel like I have been completely consumed with my schoolwork and my added schoolwork of trying to become a real estate agent. Well I am not sure if I have already told you guys, but I finally finished the 90 hour real estate course work, I took the state exam this Wednesday and for the first time in my life I failed something.
I literally sat there reading the “Fail” and had to hold back the tears. Luckily I take my sunglasses everywhere because I know I was doing a fantastic of a job at hiding my shattering disappointment. The worst part of failing that exam, besides the obvious failing of it, was that I failed it by HALF of a percent. Seriously, I mean come the freakin A on! But, then I realized I couldn’t really be mad or upset about it because it was no one’s fault but mine. I knew I was prepared and I knew I didn’t study nearly enough for it. With my regular school load, studying for that exam was placed on the back burner. A stupid mistake that cost me $60 and a full tank of gas. Anywho, I am scheduled to retake the test in about a week.
In other, happier news! My husband was told that he is more than likely going to be relocated to a town here in Oklahoma that is only about an hour away!! Which is tons better than 5 states away! I certainly hope that is the case and that his job actually relocates him.
Speaking of the husband’s work, it is also the reason we will not be able to make our trip to California to see his parents for Spring Break but without his job we wouldn’t be taking any kind of trips so I cannot complain. I found out today that it is pretty likely that my brother in law is coming to visit within a month and is having my mother in law bring his son out here as well. So it all works out. My daughter is so excited, as this will be the first time she has met the mother in law as well as her new cousin, and the first time she has seen my brother in law in over a year and a half.
Well that is about all I have for now BUT!!! I leave for Austin, TX tomorrow and I will take tons of pictures and try my best to blog while I am there.
(PS: Sorry there was nothing exciting in this blog post, I will try to make it up with the next ones )
