Real estate

For the past couple months I've been working on getting my real estate license. For the first time in my life I have actually failed something. Part of me thinks it may be due to Steven's training schedule, my mom visiting, my trip home and being sick for three weeks, but the other part of me just feels like a failure.

I have been taking tests and going to classes for as long as I can remember and never have I actually failed something. It may be due to having to pay for the test also. I want to start and there's this huge road block in my way... the stupid test. I knew it cost a bit to start real estate, I mean to start any career it costs a lot of money because of all the school, the problem with real estate is it's all at one time. I seem to be doing better and there aren't anymore big plans for a while so I think i'm going to trade in my study guide for the text book and start from square one.. there's got to be a way to pass this test and I want to find it.

Lazy Day

Today has been a day of naps, cell phone video games and a burn notice marathon. I am not proud to say I only got out of my pajamas to go with my husband to get a new battery for his key. On Sunday I fell ... in my living room ... twice, not once, but twice. I'm not even sure how but I can sure say it hurts like crazy. Apparently my feet and hardwood floors do not get along well.

Last night was pretty rough because I found out my 11-month old German Shepard is afraid of thunder... yay! Thankfully, my hubby had the day off an slept through everything last night so I was able to nap and relax today :) I love him. lol :) I even overlooked his ulterior motive ... video games and top gear, two of my least favorite things haha. We are now getting ready for bed and watching episode 7 of Burn Notice Season 6 which apparently made it's debut on Netflix and is one of the hubby's favorite shows. Unfortunately it's better than I thought it would be and my concentration is not what it should be, so I think I'll pick up my blog tomorrow morning :)

Turning Over A New Leaf

Tonight at dinner my husband asked me why I stopped blogging and I realized it was mostly because for a really long time I felt I had nothing important to say. I realized today, however, that everything is important to me, to him, to someone and perhaps I may not be the only one feeling at that specific time. Regardless if 1 person or 1 million people read my blog I'm sure at some point there is someone who is feeling happy, loved, blessed, depressed, alone, defeated, sick, optimistic, rejuvenated, or so many other things. Therefore, I've decided to try and blog everyday.

I am currently a stay at home army wife, in search of a career. Since I moved to North Carolina I've had a terrible time finding jobs with a career path. I don't necessarily have to work but I want to. I need something that is my own and I need something to do. Being in the town we're in there's not much place for advertising. Most things are chains or mom n pop shops without advertising funds. Over the past couple months I've been working on getting my real estate license, however, I've also been very sick and haven't been able to study as I should. I took my second x-ray today and hope to figure out what is wrong with me so I can put 100% of me into this new career path thing.

Unfortunately, I started this blog later in the night than I'd planned and I'm going to sign off to watch Kung Fu Panda on tv with my hubby until The Glades come on :). I absolutely LOVE The Glades! If anyone hasn't watched it and loves crime shoes with a bit of drama, sarcasm and attitude, it may be the show for you!
