Yipee!!! I passed Regulation, the third exam I took. I officially only have ONE test left to pass! YIPPEEEEEE! I am planning on taking the exam October 19th. And I definitely WILL take the exam that day cause it's the last day I can without having to reapply and spend a bunch more money and stuff. I think I'll be ready.

I honestly was pretty surprised when I found out just cause this morning I woke up and had a bad feeling. I just felt like it wasn't going to be good. Well, it was for me- but my co-worker and friend took the same exam about a week before me and she had me call in to get her score, and she didn't pass. UGH. It was the hardest! I think my bad feeling this morning had to do with her. I just feel so awful. It's hard to be too happy about passing when my friend didn't. It's such a hard exam...

My last exam is on Auditing, which happens to be the subject I learned least about in school. My review course is SUPER good though- like super super good. I feel like I'm learning a LOT. So hopefully it is good enough for the exam!

I honestly haven't posted for a while just cause I have been so nervous about the exam and whether or not I passed. But, I have a super awesome thing coming up that I'm excited about. And nervous about. I'm going to take a stab at selling a new kind of product in my shop, and it may totally flop, but you know...I'm just gonna go for it!

I'm so stinking excited for the holidays. I already have my Christmas tickets booked and Christmas presents are being worked on, and I'm just so excited! It makes me want to decorate more for Halloween and Thanksgiving just cause...I mean...I'm so excited for Christmas if I DON'T decorate for those ones, I might go psycho and decorate way too early.

I have decided to stop getting the IV's. I really wish I could, but my body just isn't fit for it. The last time I went they had trouble again and after they couldn't get my veins I just decided I should be done. Clay has wanted me to stop for ages. But I just wanted to keep trying. I still have sensitive bruises from last time which was over 2 weeks ago...and I just think it's not worth it- especially when I can get better without them. Maybe just a titch slower. I'm grateful I went and was able to do the IV's as much as I could, cause they definitely helped...but I think my body is telling me I need to stop! Clay will keep going, but I'm just not going to be able to. It's too bad, but I choose to look at the silver lining which is: I get to sleep in on Saturday's and have more time to get things done, and we will spend less money!

Well, I hope you are all enjoying the beginning of fall. I'm trying to focus on the great weather currently, instead of fearing the weather to come! :)

Wow, that is great news. You seem so ambitious and you do it all when you aren't feeling so great. I am glad you posted books to read. I need a good book. Maybe I will check them out. That's to bad about the IVs. But I am happy you get to sleep in. That's cool. I still try to remember to pray for you and Clay. I wasn't commenting for awhile on peoples posts so I don't want people to think that I have stopped thinking and praying about them.
