Well my break from blogging is over now. I haven’t been idle over the Christmas Break. I’ve been working problems using the Kindle books and making some real headway on the topics that I felt I was weak on.

I still don’t understand my score report from my last 70 in REG because it said I was Comparable or Stronger in every section and in MCQ’s and Simulations. I remember my first day of my first college accounting class and the Professor said that “accounting information should be reliable and relevant.”

Well a score report is neither, so I’m not paying attention to it. In fact, I wish they wouldn’t even send them. I thought I would have gained one point after everything I did, but I didn’t, so here I sit again studying for REG. No use crying over spilled milk!

My shoulder is doing better with all of the physical therapy, so I’m going to hand write the answers to the problems that I have no clue about, but the rest I will type. That should help me really focus on topics that are completely foreign to me.

My test is scheduled for January 9th and I am going to be ready. I’m beyond mad at this test and right now I sort of feel sorry for it because I intend to humiliate it. I will be quite satisfied with a 75 but I really, really want a score in the 90’s just to show it who is boss!

I had to take three hours out of my study schedule on Christmas Day to get some work done because I have been ordered to appear at the Child Support Office on Tuesday the 27th at 9am. I know it was just a form letter but people should really be careful in sending form letters.

The one I got said that if I didn’t show up they were going to put a lien on all of my property, including my house, bank accounts and car as well as suspend my driver’s license.

I didn’t think this was an appropriate form letter to send to a custodial parent whose ex-husband owes her a lot of money in back child support. But if that money keeps the ex from coming near my son, then it was money well spent. I just wish I knew what this was all about.

If life would stop getting in the way I would be a CPA by now! But 2012 is my year. I can feel it. I know it and I’m going to do it along with several of my friends who have struggled like me.

I’m moving forward and I’m taking no prisoners! My Facebook page has been deactivated. My phones are off the hook and my cell is in a different room. If anyone needs me then they better learn to send up smoke signals! Good Luck everyone!
