27And see that all these things are done in wisdom and aorder; for it is not requisite that a man should run bfaster than he has strength. And again, it is expedient that he should be diligent, that thereby he might win the prize; therefore, all things must be done in order.Man oh man. How many times have I had to relearn this lesson? A lot. I'm learning it right now. I know to most of you this seems like no big deal. Your like, so what? You're taking it a month later...no biggie. For some reason it gives me a ton of guilt or something. I mean, not tons...but it took major convincing of myself to feel like I'm not being lazy or something by doing this. But, the truth is- I probably would've failed had I taken the test next week. Who knows- maybe I could've done it, but I would've been freaking out and felt so unprepared. I want to go in to the test feeling so confident and ready.
So I'll probably not take my Auditing test till the beginning of October (cause I can't test in September...and August is study time). Which is fine, I will probably need the two months to study Audit...since I only took one Auditing class in college and learned nothing (no joke).
On to other things- the weather is fantastic! It's like 80's everyday! I rode my bike two days in a row and I can already see I'm getting tanner. Everyone in Idaho whines so much about the heat...when we've only felt it for like 2 days. What the heck?! I say, "It's better than cold!" and then the classic statement, "You can always get warmer, but you can't always get cooler!" To that I say baloney. Go jump in the river. Turn the AC on. Drink ice cold water. Whatever. I don't care. AND- I can't always get warmer. Anyway- I seriously love it. It just makes for a happier time in life.
Clay and I are revving up for Harry Potter in a couple weeks. We have watched Harry Potter 1, and started 2. It was my brilliant idea to watch all of them before the next movie. And seriously- I haven't seen 1-5 in like, years. Especially 1-3. The first one was SO FREAKING CUTE! It was so innocent and fun. You kinda forget about those times in the last ones, cause they are so dark. But it just made me fall inlove with Harry Potter all over again. If you haven't read the books (cough*AMY*cough) you're crazy. They are marvelous. The most brilliant series I've ever come upon.
Well, I suppose that's all. Oh yeah- I'm feeling so much better by the way. The treatments I'm on are doing wonders. I am now a firm supporter of B12 injections (which I give myself), Vit C IV's, and Hydrogen Peroxide IV's (yep). What a difference it makes!
I'm feeling very blessed right now. I hope this feeling sticks:) I know I'm blessed always, I just don't always realize it. Call me crazy, but when the suns out, I can ride a bike, study for the CPA exam, get to work ontime, and watch movies with my husband...it's pretty hard not to feel happy. Of course there's plenty things I still want...but whatev. I am satisfied for right now. Things I want will come in due time. I feel like Heavenly Father is just...so completely aware of everything. I know good things are in store for me and Clay...and that as long as we ride out this wave with faith and hope, we'll come out on top. I know that sounds so cheesy...but it's just how I feel. Today I said the words, "Life is what you make it"...I wont go into why I was saying it or to who, but I really do believe that. I have so many reasons I could just lay in bed and be sad and sorry for myself...and people probably wouldn't even blame me for it! And believe me, I have my fair share of days where I do just that. But it never...NEVER makes me feel better, and it NEVER comforts me. I only feel better or good when I force myself to get up and live my life. So, that's pretty much what I'm trying to do.
The fourth is coming up, and I'm so excited. BBQ's, fireworks, and USA pride. 3 of my very favorite things! I am definitely proud to be an American. We are so rich and blessed here. I just wish more people could see that. I guess...I love my country, not necessarily all the people in it :) Anywho, I should end this now before I just keep ranting on about all my life lessons and stuff.
Love you all. Happy 4th. Eat a few smores for me. I will eat a few myself I'm sure.
