Buying time, yet again!

Yep, I logged into Prometric and rescheduled my REG exam – buying another week, thinking if I have one more week, I can do enough to pass.

Yet the daily work schedule, kids, and husband with endless lists in and of themselves do not go away and continue to hinder my great plans to study. Why is it so hard to study in the summer? And why does work seem to pick up with more deadlines when I need to be focused on studying after the kids go to bed, not working on yet another deadline?

Why do I find myself awake in the middle of the night with a sick child who has a double ear infection in the middle of the summer? It all seems to pile up during the time I have planned to focus only on studying.

I have been working MCQs all weekend with Wiley and going through the videos with Roger CPA Review. I have written the NINJA review notes once, trying to decide if I have time to re-write them. It took me about 20 hours to write them the first time. I could get a lot of MCQs completed in that amount of time.

If I get through all the MCQs by Friday, I will rewrite my notes Friday and Saturday. I would really like to see if rewriting the NINJA review notes will help the information stick. I have read so many testimonies at telling about how much that really helped the information stick for the exam.

Enough rambling, I’m off to hit the MCQs!

Best of luck to you all!

Until next time!
