First, the good news. Last weekend & this weekend I took a precertification class to get my Property Insurance license. I was so nervous because it has been quite a while since I have had to study for anything. With the economy the way it is going, and with my husband already a Financial Advisor & Life Insurance rep, we thought a license for me would be good for our family long term. In order to take the state exam & get the license, you have to take at least 20 hours of insurance education & pass the class exam. I am sooo happy to report that yesterday I PASSSED! I studied every day this past week & it really paid off.
Now, the not so good news. My munchkin has been sick. Nothing serious just an ear infection & strep, but the poor little guy has had a nagging fever the last few days & I feel terrible that there is not a whole lot I can do but give him ibuprofen, comfort him & rock him in the laz-i-boy. Thankfully he seems to be feeling better today.
So, at the risk of making lame excuses, I have not been on track this week. Between studying, caring for a sick toddler, working, etc. I turned to Haagen Dazs for comfort. Bad idea. I am not going to bring myself to admit exactly what I consumed, but it was more than just a pint.
Today I made the decision to take a short spark break. I have to study for my state exam & I need to re-group. I will not be gone totally, but I will not be sparking as much as I normally do, but no more Haagen Dazs & I am going to get myself back on the climb.
Huggs to all my wonderful Spark Friends! See you soon!
