Goodness sorry I’m blogging so late! I’m just so busy lately it’s hard to get on at the moment- specially since we have a short week and tomorrow is only a half day also!
Some good news is I have another exam I’m going to- I passed the first now I’ll be heading to the second exam! I’ve got to fly up again (yay) but this time I’m going to spend the night and my oral exam is at 8 am on January 6th. So this trip will probably cost $400 instead of the $300 I paid last time (for the hotel and more meals). I hope I do well (I’ve got a lot of studying to do from now till then) so I get an interview- from what I understand only the TOP TEN applicants (possibly top 20) will get an interview. As of now I assume it’s going to be me and about 50 people who will be taking this oral exam. I’ve got to do better than about 80% of the people who go then! I’m nervous as heck- and honestly lately that’s made me not hungry- isn’t that funny? Before I’d be eating and eating and eating- today I could barely swallow my medication and food is the LAST thing on my mind. I guess that shows how far I’ve come cuz I’m not turning to food for comfort right now (yay). I am VERY nervous about this test- I won’t lie!
Last night got home, found out about the exam, and then booked my flight, made dinner- ate a HUGE taco salad (omg so good), lettuce, tomato, onion, I crumpled up one shell for some crunch, also put in very lean ground beef (93% lean) with taco seasoning on it. Added a sprinkle of cheese, some avocado, a squirt of sour cream, and tons of salsa instead of any dressing. It was so good! Then literally it happened- food coma- I was so tired! I decided to take a shower and literally was in bed before 8 pm! Was asleep by 9 and when I woke up at 5:30 this morning I was totally refreshed! Funny thing was I was so out of it yesterday that I thought it was Wednesday already! When my hubby was talking to me I was nodding off and then before I showered I had him put the trash cans out with me- this morning when I realized TODAY is Wednesday I was like “why didn’t you tell me it was Tuesday? We put the trash cans out early!” He replied he thought I knew something he didn’t lol. Silly hubby :p
Not much else to say for today. I’ve got to finish my last scarf (yay) and then wrap the last presents before Christmas (the scarves I’ve completed). Today I’m making an easy dinner (whole grain spaghetti with ragu and salad on the side). I also plan on spending some time with hubby and the fids- poor Broccoli was crying this morning when I had her so I felt terrible- I’ve been neglecting the fids and hubby with all the stuff I have going on- totally not fair to them
Have a good holiday everyone! I’m off to catch up with you all! This will probably be my last blog for the rest of the week.
