Ok, I was fine when I got up, now I'm starting to feel nervous, I hope today goes much better than last week, I've been practicing, but there's not really any place you can practice doing addresses, etc and get timed on it. Oh well, I'll just have to have faith that I can do this. I mean if I can hit 114 wpm with no errors...I should be able to get 40 wpm, shouldn't I?
3:30 is my appointment, well see, at least today it's not raining, maybe that's a good sign.
Ok, today sucked....I missed passing by .1 of a point, one lousy error put me over what they allow, I'm so disappointed but then again, I guess God has something else planned for me. I can't retake the test for another 6 months now, but I also know that all 8 of us there today, none of them came close, and I was the closest. She said my speed was very high, excellent, just the 1 extra error. Maybe next time.

We had a wonderful lunch, went to Applebees and just sat and talked for hours. Her little boy is so adorable, he's 3 months old now and my daughter and I were at his birth, what a great experience. This is the first time I've seen him since he was born and he is the happiest baby, and she is such a good mom.
Tuesday is my retake of the typing test, I've been practicing and to show how much of a difference there is between using a natural keyboard and a regular one, I'm attaching a photo of how I did on the one online here. A HUGE difference, so lets hope I do much better with my own there.
I hope you all have a wonderful week.
Oops, I just realized you can't read it, it says 114 wpm, 0 errors.

Wow, I didn't realize how much I'd done yesterday, unfortunately there's no way to count that as exercise, but my entire body is sore after all I did yesterday. I was constantly busy, walking all over the place. Today I'm having lunch with my daughter and her best friend and her husband, she's going to be the Godparent of their little boy, and they invited me to have lunch with them. I'm considered one of her "mothers" which is kind of cool. I have 3 young ladies like that, so instead of just my one true daughter, I have 4 "daughters". It's kind of a neat feeling, anyway, we're going to Applebee's so now I'm checking to see what I can have that within limits. We're getting a 2 for 1 meal to save money. I finished my exercises this morning but wow, I really feel like I could use a lot more sleep, maybe early to bed tonight!
Have a great day!

Wow, today was amazing, and I'm so worn out, I was up at 7 am, which for me is early, and at the HD store by 8 unpacking and readying things for the CAMDEN Ride. It was raining already, but at least it was halfway warm. We got the silent auction set up, the bake sale set up and I took off for the playground to mark papers as the riders came through on their way back to Kutters Pavilion up near the store. The last rider came through at 4 pm so I left there around 415, went back up and helped with the silent auction, listened to a bit of music, and then helped pack things up. What a long day, and I just now got home to eat supper. a VERY late one, had to take my daughter's dog out and check the pony, who's pregnant and expecting anytime now.
I hope the rest of you had a wonderful day, and will have an even better one tomorrow. By the way, the rain stopped around 1pm and we had more bikes coming through, thank goodness, but I still had my sweatshirt on. ..not good. it got up to 71 degrees and was a beautiful afternoon!

good news and bad, ok..not so bad...I did the interview, the typing part, and though I normally type 90 wpm (my last typing test was that), it was done on a natural keyboard...todays was done on a regular keyboard and i missed their required 10,000 keystrokes with no errors by 20 keystrokes, NOOOOOO...so I asked them, jokingly about bringing in my natural keyboard and they said I could, and retake the test. I was sooo relieved, because I know I can pass the test easily with it, but using a regular keyboard, it was so hard, my hands aren't used to using one of those regular ones after all these years. When you're sitting there typing on a regular keyboard, your fingers just can't get used to using one of those. The lady was so sweet, she kept saying "you were soooo close", and I knew I was, but I just didn't hit it. So now I go in next Tuesday at 330 to retry, with my own keyboard, thank Jesus for that! I can't wait to see how I do with my own!
We worked the rest of the day with preparing for the ride tomorrow, it was cold, and rainy, I hope tomorrow is nicer, it could be worse with snow up north (up to 17" in spots, is this really spring???). I keep praying it's nice out for the ride.
Anyway, if not, we've got some wonderful things for the silent auction, and the SCWHOG always has come through for us. We are their longest running fundraiser, even longer than the MDA Tub Run, which is so incredible to believe. They are the greatest bunch of people, and I love dealing with them. Thank God there are human beings like them to help foundations like ours. If not for them, the playground would have gone into disrepair.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone, and if you live in Janesville, or nearby, please feel free to stop by Kutters Harley Davidson, we have a HUGE amount of great items for the silent auction, and you can even go on the ride, you don't need a bike to do it, cars are more than welcome too!.
