Saturday brain is better

Saturday, April 21, 2012

Last night I quit studying thinking I needed a brain transplant. Would study and understand the concept get another question and it had flown out of my brain. I know Friday night I'm usually tired anyway...but study study study. Monday is just around the corner. Hubby off to parade this AM which keeps the house quiet while I study.

Getting ready to work out and study while I ride the bike. I will get through this process and overcome the hurdles in my path.

Determined to make it a great day. Fortunately I am able to focus most of the weekend on studying so I can take breaks...put in a load of laundry etc.

I felt pretty confident and then last night...not so confident...but study each day will help me knock this out of the ballfield and be done with it...and on to the next challenge in life. One thing for's got my motor running and stimulated my brain to start firing again. I like the sense of challenge and I know Monday is the end of this challenge My gut tells me I'll's just how much I will put in to it to study and learn about it. The better prepared I am the better the outcome will be. I am determined not to let this challenge hold me down. In the big picture it's just a bump or pebble in the road and I will not let it hold me back from experiencing all that life has for me to experience.

Off to conquor this challenge successfully!

    You are really doing your part, and I agree with Avanell's advice to ask the Holy Spirit for his Help.

Helps too that I promise to pray for you.

Fabulous Friday

Friday, April 20, 2012

Long day yesterday but got in a lunch time walk. Studied for an hour for my upcoming exam at a coffee shop and then went to voice lessons with co-worker...I'm not taking them but co-worker is and there needs to be 3 of us there..and then afterwards Praise Team practise until 9 pm. I was pretty beat coming home. Talked to hubby about 15-20 minutes and then went to bed.

Planning to study Saturday and then Sunday afternoon. Took Monday off to study and take the test and hope to celebrate Monday evening. Test is Monday at 3 pm about 2 1/2 proctored test. We can do this. A break in the routine of life....a challenge to overcome. We can do this.

Finished Schooling

Thursday, April 19, 2012

Finished schooling yesterday. Gorgeous Day! Walked some after class and did some shopping and found a pair of slack on the clearance rack. I'm tall so it's unusual to find things on the rack. Then found a couple of tops! I hit the jackpot yesterday.

Came home and took a ride with hubby in "the baby" and enjoyed the sunshine.

Scheduled my state exam for life insurance. It is a 2 1/2 state test on the computer. Wanted it within a week but my choice was Monday or Thusday night (when we have a business expo that I'm in charge of) or wait until the middle of May. So I chose Monday at 3 pm. I prefer mornings as I'm a morning person...but guess we get an afternoon one. Am going to ask my boss to take off Monday to do some cramming and then take the test.

The girls in our other office both failed the test...but I'm going to pass it...and if I don't I will not let it get me....I will keep at it until I pass it. I feel OK on the subjects...I have work to do to get where I'd like to be before the test but plan to study each day and especially this weekend!

I will get it done!

Have Praise Team Practise and I go early with Co-worker for her voice busy night tonight and not much time to study tonight....

Off to make it a great day!

Classes and study is a change of pace and has been a good break from daily routines of work. It's given me a new challenge to overcome!

    Good luck with your test! I was once in the insurance field and took a licensing test myself, so I know what that grind is like!

    You will pass it 'cause I see all systems go! I am so glad you joined Winners With God, because I try to keep up with your family, but fail miserably on the Friend Feed. I just (for someone retired) have too much to do each day. Loving our weather though!

Bless us, Lord, as we care for our immediate family, and try to keep our minds intact. Amen

Today last day of class. Trying to get some study in at night. Brain feels on overload. Last night was using software from class to go through study questions on computer. Got in about an hour and then starting not to think well so figured I'd call it a night. Will catch up with ready for today while I'm on the bike and hopefully some of it will stick. We have class and then we take a comprehensive test. Then come home and study, study and register for state exam and hopefully pass it the first time.

Off to make it a great day learning new things!

    Praying that the Holy Spirit will bring back to your remembrance all that you need to pass your exam! He is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we could ask or imagine, according to His power at work within us. Depend on Him and He will grant you success!

Life Classes

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

Made it through the first day of classes. Came home with information overload. Think I was the oldest in class except for the teacher. Teacher receommended we reread everything we had covered yesterday and read ahead. Didn't get the read a head done...hope to do that this AM while I'm on the bike.

Friends teased us Sunday night...what if you fail your test of life???? Ha ha ha! I will not do that. Hoping to study hard and pass it in a week. Want to get it behind me. We have a Chamber of Commers Expo next Thursday and set up is Wednesday night. Want to take the test Tuesday or Wednesday and be done with it before the show.

If I don't pass the first time....I will keep taking the test until I pass it. I will not let it keep me down.

Off to make it a great day!
