Sometimes Stuff Happens While Studying for the CPA Exam

30 Jun 2012


Jaquetta is a weekly NINJA CPA Blogger.

My husband’s grandmother died Sunday. Thankfully we were able to go spend time with her a few weeks ago. She was alert and aware, but tired.

Through labored breath she spoke to us about raising our child (expected due date December 1) respectfully and responsibly. I will always remember her words of wisdom.

When we found out we made arrangements to fly in the following day in preparation for the funeral on Tuesday. I completely disconnected from anything else but the family and tried to be as comforting and helpful as possible.

When I got home on Thursday I feverously responded to email and tried to regroup, reschedule, and reconnect.

I originally got off track three weeks ago when we went to check on the hubby’s grandma and I still haven’t been able to catch up. I am so glad we got to spend time with her a few weeks ago and I wouldn’t change it for the world.

I realize that stuff happens and when it does sometimes it deserves your full attention. You shouldn’t feel guilty about it. I find peace in the fact that time wasn’t spent at the mall, watching TV, or on the internet mindlessly surfing for baby stuff.

Actually, after some time away from FAR, I feel ready to study. That means I should be back next week with progress and not feeling burned out.

Until next time,

Sorry to hear of your loss. Your story is encouraging reminding us that family comes first and then studying. Good luck with FAR and keep us posted. ~Stokey45
